Lame duck Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn is a month late filing his campaign fund disclosures and that might be due to a fraud scheme he was allegedly involved in. The campaign appears to be out of money, with insiders saying every time they raised a dollar they’d immediately spend it. Cawthorn spent thousands of dollars at Chick-Fil-A, thousands at cigar shops, $21,000 for lodging in Florida, $3,000 at “Papa’s Beer,” and hundreds of thousands more in consulting fees. But to make matters worse for Madison is that it appears he spent money intended for his general election campaign, which he could not lawfully do before winning his primary. Cawthorn lost his primary back in May so all of that general election fund money is supposed to be returned to the donors. That money may now be gone and that could explain why his campaign is a month late reporting its disclosures. This means the troubles for Madison may extend well beyond getting kicked out of office after just one term.
