Photographs obtained by POLITICO appear to show Madison Cawthorn, the embattled Republican congressman from North Carolina who recently accused his GOP colleagues of inviting him to orgies, wearing lingerie in what appears to be a party setting.

When he said "I was raised on Proverbs and pushups" apparently he meant pushup bras.

I still can't believe Lee would loan Matt his lingerie!

Just the small ones that I loan out at parties. Someone always forgets to BYOB.

I remain to be convinced the images are real.

fwiw, I've seen better fakes than these purported "real" images.

from the article

"After this story published, Cawthorn tweeted that the photos were taken of him during a game on a cruise before he was elected to Congress."

Thanks for that followup.

To be honest, I was so disgusted by the pics that I didn't read the article.

thx.


(fwiw, I have seen better fakes. :) )

I guess the left thinks goofy vacation photos during a game on a cruise (taken waaay before I ran for Congress) is going to somehow hurt me?

They're running out of things to throw at me...

So he seems to be saying that what he did before he ran for Congress is somehow irrelevant now. That we should all just ignore that history.

The implication is that he has not run for Congress based upon what or who he actually is.

Is this A Good Thing in a Congressional candidate?

We're going to need to be exceptionally clear: the story is the hypocrisy.

There's nothing wrong with wearing lingerie, there's something very wrong with promoting the persecution of trans and gender non-conforming Americans.

Okay, so it's just a hit piece then. Guy is probably a Muslim or a Jew or something. Hindu. You know how they are about traditional values. So shove your bigotry up your ass. He's just mad about #MAP's in school with your kids. Hint: a normal person.

Really? Why?

Why does dressing up in drag under the auspices of a football team make it different than dressing up in drag under other circumstances?

Aren't both just showing their inner selves?

#15 No. Drag queens live to maybe 30-ish. Drug addiction, AIDS, suicide. The life behind the curtain of the strip, full of prostitution and drugs. A dress-up stunt for a joke is very different - it's not a lifestyle.

Wait, what?

As stated previously, your conspiracy comments are usually much better than this one. (and as you continue to comment, they were oh so much better...)

Take a break.

Sittin' stoned alone in my backyard
Askin' myself "Why should I work so hard?"
Sittin' dreamin' 'bout the days to come
Half-undressed, just soakin' up the sun

Sittin' here, I hope I don't get fried
Two years ago, you know, I almost died
And yet, there's nothin' better for your soul
Than lyin' in the sun and listenin' to rock 'n roll

Sunny days
Oh, sunny, sunny, sunny days
Ain't nothin' better in the world, you know
Than lyin' in the sun with your radio

I'm friends with quite a few drag queens in the Wichita Kansas area. Not are 30ish and under and not everyone is into drugs so much for your diatribe.

If a Democrat who talked about attending coke-fueled DC orgies appeared in lingerie, Republicans would howl that the degenerate groomer must be expelled from Congress at once, and that an exorcist must be called at once.

At least now we know why Maddie got invited to those orgies: he likes to play drinking games, dress in drag and generally have a good time!

Whether the photos are real or not, we're still looking at a hit piece. I'd guess a Republican-on-Republican hit piece at that.

OTOH, it was Cawthorn's big mouth that started these Republican-on- Republican hits. So, it boils down to if you can't take it, don't dish it out.

In my opinion, the photos, if their real, look like Cawthorn lost a bet at a keg party. I've seen worse gags at frat houses. Nobody earned a lifetime of labels over them. We all grew up.

IMO, Cawthorn's ideology about "masculinity" has a dangerous stench of insecurity about it. In other words, real men don't have to talk about it. It shows in their actions and deeds, not words.

Cawthorn has a lot of growing up to do. Insecurity has no place in Congress.

#23 when Maddie first talked about being invited to the coked up sex orgies, some people asked why would anyone invite him? Like I said, now we know.

They are real. Cawthorn has admitted they are. I'd guess the Republican hit piece came from this group:

Tillis super PAC launches $300K ad buy knocking Cawthorn

A super PAC affiliated with Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) spent more than $300,000 to air an ad targeting fellow North Carolina lawmaker Rep. Madison Cawthorn

The video ad, titled "Madison Cawthorn's Lies," was uploaded to Youtube on Thursday by Results for NC, a super PAC tied to Tillis. The ad will also air on cable.

#15 - Do you understand why "drag queens" end up in prostitution and drugs, often dying young? It's because of attitudes like yours. Most don't CHOOSE that life. They generally end up on the street because Bible ------- holier than thou POS parents can't stand that their child is different or gender non-conforming; they send them to "reparative therapy," which makes things worse, or just kick them out. Once on the street, they have few job prospects and often fall into drugs because of pain, loneliness, and often mental health issues like depression. They fall into prostitution as a way to pay for their habit. Yes, drugs and STIs often kill them. Still, trans people are murdered at FOUR times the national average because they are targeted by Reichwing DBags, often because they are self-hating gays who use them and then kill them or just find them an easy target for their hateful violence.

In the past ten years, we've seen more acceptance for gender non-conforming people in "normal" life, in the workplace, in TV and movie roles. Still, closed-minded POS like you want to keep them in the closet, probably until you need to find them on the boulevard for your next $50 "car date" after Bible class.
