Kevin McCarthy Speaks With Madison Cawthorn Over Controversial Comments

Kevin McCarthy Expected to Have a

( – After Representative Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) made shocking claims about seeing his colleagues in Congress snorting cocaine and inviting him to sex parties, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) requested a meeting. On March 30, he spoke with the North Carolina legislator behind closed doors and determined Cawthorn lied. McCarthy said there was no evidence proving any of the allegations took place and called the freshman lawmaker’s actions “unacceptable.”

Cawthorn claimed during a podcast interview that he was invited to orgies by sitting members of Congress and witnessed lawmakers pushing for harsher drug policies doing drugs themselves. Several House Republicans were angry about Cawthorn’s accusations and spoke about them at a GOP conference meeting on March 29. Representative Steve Womack (R-AR) called on House leadership to “fix the problem.”

After the legislators spoke the next day, McCarthy stated Cawthorn continued to change his story, and his actions were unbecoming of a congressman. The California Republican also said he no longer trusts Cawthorn and the representative from North Carolina will have to earn it back. He is already facing jail time for driving with a revoked license, which also doesn’t align with appropriate conduct.

The lawmakers reportedly spoke for half an hour, and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) was also in attendance.
