Dashcam video emerges showing one of Madison Cawthorn’s three speeding stops

Recently released dashcam footage of a North Carolina state patrol vehicle shows Representative Madison Cawthorn being arrested for speeding — his second of three charges in the past five months.

The 26-year-old speedster was eventually charged with driving 87 miles per hour in a 70 mph zone during the Jan. 8 shutdown. The footage also shows that the officer released Cawthorn because he did not have his driver’s license.

The freshman rep has been ticketed at least three times in recent months for speeding — including additional stops on Oct. 18, 2021 and March 3, 2022, according to Fox 46

In all three incidents, he drove a white 2009 Dodge Challenger registered to his father.

It’s just the latest incident that has caught the attention of the beleaguered North Carolina representative, who has been convicted by two parties in recent months for a series of eyebrow-raising statements.

Last month, Cawthorn declared Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy a “criminal” at a constituent meeting just days before addressing a joint session of Congress, sparking outrage from those within his own party.

“Madison is wrong. If there is one villain in this world, it is Putin,” minority leader Kevin McCarthy said when asked about the comments. He said he spoke to Cawthorn about the incident.

Cawthorn also recently made headlines for suggesting fellow members of Congress had invited him to “orgies” and used cocaine for him — decrying the “sexual perversion” of Washington insiders.

Footage from Cawthorn’s traffic stop on Jan. 8 shows him driving a white Dodge Challenger on US-74 in Polk County, North Carolina just before 6:30 p.m.

After a brief chase by the officer, Cawthorn pulls the vehicle onto the grassy berm of the two-lane road.

“The only reason I’m stopping you is because of your speed,” the officer says after approaching the driver’s side window. “Do you have your driver’s license with you?”

“No sir, I don’t have my wallet with me,” Cawthorn replies.

Driving without a license is a Class 3 felony in the state of North Carolina and carries a maximum penalty of 20 days in prison.

The officer also asks Cawthorn if he is the registered owner of the vehicle, although the noise from the roadway drowns out his answer. The officer later returns to say that the car is actually registered to the congressman’s father—to which he replies, “Is it real?”

The interaction continues with the officer telling Cawthorn to slow down and try to have his driver’s license on hand at all times.

He also notifies Cawthorn of his upcoming court date on January 4, and asks, “Do you have any questions about the subpoena?”

‘No sir, can I just come in here and pay?’ he answers.

The officer concludes by telling Cawthorn to attend the court date in person.

Cawthorn also raised eyebrows last month when he ranted at length about rampant “sexual perversion” and drug use in the nation’s capital — comparing the Netflix series House of Cards to his experience in Washington, D.C.

Last month, during an interview with the Warrior Poet Society podcast, he was asked how his experience on Capitol Hill aligns with the show, specifically the elements of “corruption, power, money, and perversion.”

Cawthorn said he once heard a former president say the only unrealistic thing about the show was that Congress could someday quickly pass a piece of legislation, and he agreed with the sentiment.

“The sexual perversion that’s going on in Washington… as a kind of young guy in Washington, where the average age is probably 60 or 70, I look at all these people—many of them that I’ve looked up to throughout my life. life…then all of a sudden you’re invited to say, ‘Well, we’re going to have some kind of sexual meeting in one of our houses. You should come’, like, where did you just ask me to come? And then you realize they’re asking you to come to an orgy.’

Just days later, Cawthorn had a meeting where he was chastised by GOP leader Kevin McCarthy for the wild comments. McCarthy said Cawthorn had told him he had “exaggerated” his comments about witnessing cocaine use in elite Republican circles, and that he “maybe saw an employee in a garage using drugs 100 yards away.”

“I just told him he’s lost my trust, he’s going to have to earn it back, and I’ve explained everything I think is inappropriate,” McCarthy said. axios and other outlets at the time.

Earlier this year, Cawthorn also suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is an alcoholic.

Cawthorn said of the California Democrat at a campaign event, “I’ll tell you I have to work with her every day, so please pray for me. The theories about alcoholism are very true and it is very sad,” he said, according to the video posted by Patriot Takes.

His line got a chuckle during the event.

Pelosi, 81, doesn’t drink and hasn’t for years.

Her daughter Christine attacked past insults about her mother’s alleged alcoholism in 2019, tweeting: ‘Republicans and their conservative allies have been pumping this despicable fake meme for years! Now they’re getting caught.

‘#FactCheck: Mrs. Speaker doesn’t even drink alcohol!’

Earlier this year, Cawthorn also suggested at a campaign event (above) that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is an alcoholic — despite not drinking.

In March, a video surfaced showing Cawthorn calling Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky a “thug.” He said his government was “corrupt, unbelievably bad” and “pushing awakening ideologies”.

He appeared to be talking about the US sending military aid to Ukraine before lashing out at leaders in Kiev – who refused to flee the country despite reports that many are on a Russian ‘death list’, including Zelensky and his family.

But the freshman congressman seems nowhere near any apology, recently saying he “will not bow to the crowd” amid a barrage of criticism from his own party for the string of bombastic statements.

‘The radical left, the establishment and the media want to bring me down. Their attacks were relentless. I won’t stop fighting. I will not bow to the crowd. They want to silence the America First movement. I’m not going anywhere,” the 26-year-old North Carolina Republican wrote on Twitter, along with a new campaign video.
