Cawthorn's Claim That He Was Invited to 'Orgy' by Colleagues Has GOP House Members Livid

Cawthorn's Claim That He Was Invited to 'Orgy' by Colleagues Has GOP House Members Livid

Far-right Congressman Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina caused a stir this week after comments he made during the Warrior Poet Society podcast.

The episode scrutinized how similar the goings-on of Congress are to the Netflix series House of Cards, which was canceled four years ago and details the ambition of a corrupt Congressman's quest for ultimate power.


Never one to miss a chance at expressing moral outrage, Cawthorn railed against the "sexual perversion" he claims is rampant within Washington, and one of his salacious claims is already getting backlash from fellow members of the GOP House conference.

Watch his original diatribe below.

Cawthorn told host John Lovell:

"The sexual perversion that goes on in Washington, I mean, being kind of a young guy in Washington, average age is probably 60 or 70. I look at a lot of these people, a lot of them that I’ve looked up to through my life ― I’ve always paid attention to politics. Then all of a sudden, you get invited to, ‘Oh, hey, we’re going to have a sexual get-together at one of our homes, you should come.’ I’m like, 'What did you just ask me to come to?' And then you realize they are asking you to come to an orgy."

The Congressman also claimed that members of Congress did key bumps of cocaine in his presence.

Before long, the clip went viral. Democratic members of Congress mocked Cawthorn while others demanded to know who supposedly invited him to the event.

Now, Politico reports that, in a closed-door meeting of Republican House members, in which Cawthorn reportedly wasn't present, multiple conservative representatives expressed outrage at the way his anecdote seemed to characterize the entire GOP conference as narcotic-loving nymphos.

It goes on to state:

"There's a desire among fellow Republicans for Cawthorn to identify the colleagues involved to prove the truth of his comments, but that desire to name names could also cause new headaches for a conference that's already faced an array of controversies this Congress."

As a result, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy intends to sit down with Cawthorn to discuss his comments and potentially reprimand the 26 year old Congressman.

As you may imagine, social media users are having a field day with the news.





Others scorned the party for apparently drawing the line at group sex rumors, but not at a host of catastrophes that have direct effects on American democracy.




It remains to be seen if Cawthorn will name names.

The movie made $80.5 million over its opening weekend—just shy of what Harris raised in the immediate aftermath since President Joe Biden dropped out of the race and endorsed her to be his successor.
