Kevin McCarthy reportedly told House Republicans that he will give a talking-to to Rep. Madison Cawthorn.
Cawthorn recently suggested that "House of Cards" was accurate in how it depicted sex and drugs in Washington.
McCarthy has already had to publicly rebuke the North Carolina Republican in recent weeks.
GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy plans to talk to Rep. Madison Cawthorn about his remarks on DC elites inviting him to orgy parties and doing cocaine.
“I mean the sexual perversion that goes on in Washington. I mean being kind of a young guy in Washington and the average age is probably 60 or 70. And I look at a lot of these people and you know, a lot of them that I, you know, that I looked up to through my life. I’ve always paid attention to politics and then all of the sudden I get invited to like, hey we’re going to have some kind of sexual get-together at one of our homes. You should come by… What did you just ask me to do? And then you realize they’re asking you to come to an orgy,” Cawthorn said on
“Or the fact that you know there’s some of the people leading on the movement to try and remove addiction in our country. And of doing cocaine right in front of you,” the freshman Rep. added.
McCarthy sprung into action after other Republicans expressed frustration with Cawthorn’s candor.
“Multiple sources tell me Leader Kevin McCarthy says he plans to talk to freshman Rep. Madison Cawthorn over his orgy remarks” Politico reported. “Told several House Republicans stood up who were upset. They said it wasn’t ok, they don’t believe it, etc”
According to Politico, Rep Steve Womack is getting questions about which members are partaking in orgies after Cawthorn suggested they are happening in DC along with the use of cocaine.
