said some new things on camera the other day.
He affirmed that Washington, DC, is like the TV series "House of Cards" and said people that he’s looked up to his whole life, who are now in their 60’s or 70’s, have invited him to an orgy at their home and others have done cocaine in front of him.
This led Senator Thom Tillis to unload on Cawthorn to reporter Manu Raju (Twitter thread):
“I thought about the statement, if it’s true, then he’s got a lot of information to reveal. If it’s not true, then he’s guilty of being untruthful.”
Tillis adds: “I thought it was a silly statement and it’s not the first one.” Is Cawthorn a problem? “At the end of the day, people in the district are going to have to vote for him and I would ask them to look at his record and ask what has he done since he’s been here.”
Tillis: “What is his track record of working on tough issues and what’s he done for the western part of the state.” Asked for his assessment whether Cawthorn had accomplished much in his first term, Tillis said, “Not a lot in my opinion.”
