GET READY: Madison Cawthorn’s Opponents Have ‘Much More Explicit’ Material to Release in the Coming Days

After the release of the notorious “humping” video of  North Carolina’s Madison Cawthorn, we didn’t think there was much more to see. The video showed the Republican extremist thrusting his groin into a male friend’s face while nude.

But the group that released the clip, American Muckrakers PAC, says there’s more. They run the “Fire Madison Cawthorn” website, and the spokesperson says there’s worse stuff:

“[M]uch more explicit material featuring the congressman–material Wheeler said he could not publish without breaking North Carolina law.”

David Wheeler is the group’s spokesperson.

American Muckrakers says they received the naked “humping” video from an anonymous former donor to Cawthorn. And with five days left before Cawthorn’s primary, the group wants nothing more than to make the freshman Republican’s first term his last.

Here’s a fairly clean still from Madison Cawthorn’s video. And it was pretty bad. So if there’s more to come, then…yikes!

It’s possible that he’s being targeted by dark money old-school Republicans. The old guard was pretty taken aback when Cawthorn alleged that he’d been invited to orgies and seen high-rollers snorting drugs.

But Cawthorn himself gave a speech at Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point USA conference in December telling kids to drop out of college and marry young — just before he announced his separation from his own wife after less than a year of marriage.

He’s been charged with driving while his license was revoked. And at the end of April, he was cited for carrying a loaded weapon at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, the second time he’s tried to carry a gun onto a plane.

These videos of Cawthorn dressing in women’s lingerie seem plain ol’ innocent now.

Trust us, there’s plenty of material about Madison Cawthorn already. So even not knowing what the “more explicit” stuff is, it’s hard to imagine what could be worse than the things that have already come out.

Despite Wheeler saying he would be breaking the law in NC if he were to release whatever the material is, it’s highly unlikely that there won’t be some kind of “accidental” leak of more videos, if they exist.
