Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) needs to tell exactly which of his colleagues invited him to drug and sex parties, Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry said.
The leader of the conservative Freedom Caucus plans to speak with Cawthorn one-on-one about the alleged orgy and drug parties.
The 26-year-old North Carolina Republican is a member of the caucus and made the allegations comparing the culture on Capitol Hill to the Netflix series “House of Cards” on a podcast.
“I think it is important, if you’re going to say something like that, to name names,” Perry told Politico.
House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told members Tuesday he would speak privately with Cawthorn.
Cawthorn was asked by the “Warrior Poet Society” podcast if “House of Cards” was real or fake.
And that’s when he made the controversial comments.
He said he received invitations like, “‘hey, we’re going to have kind of a sexual get-together at one of our homes, you should come’.” Cawthorn described his response as: “‘What did you just ask me to come to?’ And then you realize they are asking you to come to an orgy.”
National radio host Todd Starnes said Republicans are upset because Cawthorn isn’t hanging out with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) or her Squad colleagues.
“Who’s doing coke on Capitol Hill?” Starnes asked.
Madison Cawthorn affirms Washington DC is like the movie House of Cards and said people that he’s looked up 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. pic.twitter.com/iJnWMJ9PIR— PatriotTakes ??
