“Fortunately, I was armed, so we would have been able to protect ourselves,” Cawthorn told the publication.

A spokesperson for the first-term lawmaker also confirmed to HuffPost that Cawthorn was carrying a gun the day of the siege.

“It’s Congressman Cawthorn’s general posture to practice his 2nd Amendment rights, as well as the rights afforded to him as a member of Congress,” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement on Wednesday.

He's a me too type, too

Three incidents alleging sexual misconduct by Cawthorn – two involving Patrick Henry College students — were reported previously in a conservative Christian publication, World Magazine, written by a reporter who was also a graduate of the school. Cawthorn didn’t challenge that report, but attributed his actions to awkward attempts to kiss his dates at a time when he was learning to adjust to his situation as a paraplegic after his 2014 car accident. He offered an apology to the women named in that article.

But one of the authors of the online letter, Marquis Gough, who became president of the student government, said the words “sexual predator” to describe Cawthorn were carefully chosen because reports from “multiple” female students of being victimized while on car rides “fit the same pattern.”

“This wasn’t the isolated incidence of an opportunist,” Gough said in an interview. “It is a pattern of predatory behavior. People say that he’s in a wheelchair and ask how could this be? But when you’re in his car with him and he locks the door, there’s no escape.”

And yet another piece of work...

“As a teenager, he worked at a Chick-fil-A restaurant.”*
“U.S. Representative Mark Meadows** nominated Cawthorn to the United States Naval Academy in 2014, but his application was rejected...”
“Cawthorn attended Patrick Henry College during the fall 2016 semester to study political science, but dropped out after earning mostly D grades.”
“Cawthorn is the owner of SPQR Holdings, LLC, a real estate investment firm in Hendersonville. The firm was created in August 2019 and reported no income; he is its sole employee.”
“In August 2020, during Cawthorn's campaign for Congress, several women came forward accusing him of sexually aggressive behavior, sexual misconduct, and sexual assault.”
“On October 17, 2020, a group of alumni of the Patrick Henry College released a public letter accusing Cawthorn of ‘sexually predatory behavior’ while a student there, as well as of vandalism and lying. The letter originally had 10 signatories but the number increased to over 150 alumni.”



*He’s only 25 now; just 6 years from “teen”.
**”He was considered one of President Donald Trump's closest allies in Congress before his appointment as [tRump’s] chief of staff.”

Any member of Congress that participated needs to be immediately expelled. A recall would take too long and be subject to fake news.

They can be tried in front of a jury like any other citizen.

They have immunity while Congress is in session.

He also pretended to be a wounded vet during his campaign, when what left him in a wheelchair for life was in fact a spring break car accident.

He was a backwoods preacher before running for congress. The man he defeated and lied about disgracefully, Colonel Moe Davis, would be an excellent rep. And of course he actually is a decorated vet.

This district is gerrymandered to guarantee a GOP win, do unless he gets primaried we are likely stuck with this POS.
