Madison Cawthorn says that since he’s been in D.C., he’s seen some unexpected (from his point of view, at least) behaviors from the very people who he had held in such high esteem. What exactly is he seeing? He claims his colleagues do cocaine in front of him, and have invited him to orgies at their homes.
Cawthorn has spent his brief time in Congress representing the farthest-right, embarrassing himself with behaviors ranging from the political (calling Ukraine’s President Volovymyr Zelenskyy a ‘thug’ and voting against funding to help his constituents, for example) to his behaviors in his off time (such as getting ticketed for driving with a revoked license, and having a reputation for sexual intimidation and coercion). Even he, though, says he finds some behaviors he’s witnessed among his colleagues reprehensible.
Madison Cawthorn affirms Washington DC is like the movie House of Cards and said people that he’s looked up his whole life who are now in their 60’s or 70’s have invited him to an orgy at their home and others have done cocaine in front of him. pic.twitter.com/iJnWMJ9PIR

“The sexual perversion that goes on in Washington…I look at all these people, a lot of them that I’ve looked up to through my life, I’ve always paid attention to politics…all of a sudden you get invited to like, ‘well hey, we’re gonna have a kind of sexual get-together at one of our homes, you should come!’…and you realize they’re asking you to come to an orgy.See Also
Or the fact that, you know, some of the people leading the movement to try and remove addiction in our country, and they watch them doing, you know, a key bump of cocaine right in front of you.”
Who exactly in Washington is Cawthorn accusing of doing cocaine and holding orgies? He’s not naming names, but the 26-year-old does describe them as people he’s looked up to his whole life — so it seems likely he’s pointing the finger at individuals who (at least publicly) share his political and social views, and who have been in politics for a decade or two. (That doesn’t narrow it down much.)
