Congressman Cawthorn Charged Over Revoked License

Republican North Carolina Representative Madison Cawthorn was charged this month for driving with a revoked license.

The Daily Wire reports:

According to a report from the Ashville Citizen Times, the 26-year-old congressman was pulled over in Cleveland County, North Carolina, mid-morning on March 3, after his 2019 Toyota Truck crossed the center line.

Trooper Tyler Gantt cited the representative for driving with a revoked license. Cawthorn “was very polite and cooperative,” the trooper noted in his citation.

“The driver was identified as David Madison Cawthorn, 26 years old of Hendersonville, N.C.,” said Highway Patrol spokesperson Sgt. Marcus Bethea, adding, “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.”

“Cawthorn uses a wheelchair after being seriously injured in a 2014 car accident in Florida,” Citizen Times noted. “A friend who was driving fell asleep while Cawthorn slept in the passenger seat, according to his 2019 federal court filing against the insurance company.”

The GOP Rep. could face up to 20 days in jail over the misdemeanor.

Cawthorn has recently faced efforts by some North Carolinians trying to prevent him from seeking a second term in Congress over his participation in a pro-Trump rally prior to protestors storming the Capitol in 2020.

Cawthorn did NOT attack Trump. That’s why they’re after him.

They go after everyone that supports Trump. You can go to jail If you wake up on the right side of the bed. All the burning down of cities, smashing police cars, looting non-stop, assaults, murders, rapes and nothing happens to them. what a disgrace.

He was cited and released. It states he “COULD” face 20 days which is highly unlikely! What I would like to know is? How is a license under a state of revocation? Does it have to do with him being involved on Jan 6? Another example of over reach by government!

This is the state that our country is in today.
I’ve said it before, if you do so much as disagree or speak out against this current regime, God knows you’re in serious trouble.
Look no further than the domestic prisoners in the DC jail.

He gets 20 days for driving with no license but the criminals who burned down cities in 2021 get a free pass. The border crossers get a free pass. Attempted murderers get bail and walk. Hey, but that sounds fair!

This is so stupid. Why isn’t anyone going after Nancy Pelosi for her deep crimes of human and child sex trafficking for 61 years worth and her insider trading, her extortion of money from the Ukraine? This is much more important than Cawthorn’s minor mishap! Something is very wrong with with Congress and our DOJ system!

Don’t count on Garland to do anything to the people within his own corrupt party.
His only job is to go after the GOP and their constituents any way he can.
Revenge for not getting elected to the Supreme Court.

No, the cop did his job as the tax payers pay him to do. If he was a bad cop he would have let him go with no citation at all. Cop needs an atta boy for not just letting him go because he was a DC pol.

This is probably as simple as he was spending much of his time in DC and just forgot to renew his license before his birthday in the year in which the license was up for renewal.. This happens to many people. While embarrassing, it is not earth shaking. The left and RINOS are really after this man.

Only a Democrat would give Cawthorn any crap over this. Teddy Kennedy left a woman to die (Mary Jo Koepchne) and didn’t receive any citation, not even for leaving a car in a pond.

If he shouldn’t be allowed to run for office because of an DMV violation then a lot of other corrupt politicians shouldn’t be allowed because of their involvement in illegal dealings (i.e. inside trading, treason, promoting and encouraging insurrections in our cities etc etc)
