Madison Cawthorn has only been a congressman for a little more than a year. The North Carolina Rep., however, has been dealt with a number of controversies during his time in office. There was this Buzzfeed News story about the way he treated female students while in college. And there is also the attempt by North Carolina voters to have him taken off the ballot in the state.
Now Cawthorn has a much more common problem on his hands. It was recently revealed that the Republican has been charged with driving with a revoked license.
The incident occurred on March 3rd in Cleveland County, North Carolina. Trooper Tyler Gantt pulled over the congressman’s truck after it crossed over the centerline. According to the officer, “The driver was identified as David Madison Cawthorn, 26 years old of Hendersonville, N.C. During the course of the investigation, it was determined that the driver’s license was in a state of revocation and he was subsequently charged with driving while license revoked.”

The penalty for driving with a revoked license could lead to serious penalties in North Carolina which could include up to 20 days in prison. It is more common, though, for the driver to be put on probation or pay a fine.
