Madison Cawthorn has got to go

Madison Cawthorn has got to go

To the Editor:

A recently released video shows Maddy and friends having fun and filming some foolish, immature pranks. I have no problem with that; he was young, foolish and immature. Who among us did not do foolish things when we were young?

The big problem is, though not quite as young, he is still just as foolish and immature. These are not qualities I want in my congressional representative. What are his assets? A pretty face and the ability to attract media attention. Again, not qualities I look for in my congressional representative.

He can wrap himself in the U. S. flag as much as he likes, but he still stinks. Baddy Maddy’s got to go!

  • The GOP gave you what you wanted. So why the whining?

    Cawthorn hasn't done anything others have not done. Your rage is just a bit selective.
