North Carolina Elections Board Claims it Has Power to Bar Rep. Madison Cawthorn From Running Over January 6th
“he engaged in the insurrection, which disqualifies him from office because it violates the 14th Amendment of the Constitution”
Democrats and their allies are trying to prevent Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) from running again and they’re using January 6th as an excuse. This has been going on for weeks.
It’s ridiculous and outrageous. Vice President Kamala Harris promoted a bail fund for people arrested during the Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots of 2020. Is she also disqualified?

North Carolina elections board says it has power to bar Cawthorn from running over Jan. 6
The North Carolina elections board said in a court filing Monday it has the power to bar Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) from running for office over his actions leading up to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.
“The State does not judge the qualifications of the elected members of the U.S. House of Representative. It polices candidate qualifications prior to the elections,” the board wrote in a filing to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Cawthorn.
“In doing so, as indicated above, States have long enforced age and residency requirements, without question and with very few if any legal challenges. The State has the same authority to police which candidates should or should not be disqualified per Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment,” the board added.
Cawthorn filed a lawsuit after a group of liberal activists began attempting to get him barred from office due to what they say were disqualifying actions leading up to the Capitol riot.
Leading up to the riot, Cawthorn repeated former President Trump’s false election fraud claims and spoke at a rally hours before the riot began. Opponents of Cawthorn say he engaged in the insurrection, which disqualifies him from office because it violates the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.
Let me break this down for anyone who doesn’t understand what’s happening here. Madison Cawthorn supports Trump, therefore he must be destroyed. That’s it. You’re now up to date.
Oh wait, maybe there’s more to this story.

GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn introduces bill to have term limits in Congress to ‘drain the swamp’ as North Carolina electors try and get him thrown off the 2022 ticket
Madison Cawthorn, 26, is introducing term limit legislation on Capitol Hill that would restrict people to serving 24 years total in Congress.
The youngest member of Congress wants House members to only be able to serve six two-year terms and members of the Senate to be restricted to two six-year terms, according to a copy of the legislation revealed Wednesday.
The North Carolina Republican congressman is coming for some of the older members, claiming it’s time to ‘drain the swamp,’ – the phrase Donald Trump used in his 2016 campaign to promote his D.C. outsider status.
‘If you’re not able to accomplish your goals in over a decade, I really don’t want you to represent me anyway,’ he told Fox News, adding two dozen years is a ‘reasonable amount of time’ to make an impact.
Term limits is a great idea, but let’s focus on the bigger issue here. Democrats are trying to disqualify a Republican from running over January 6th.
Fine. May the same apply to every single Democrat who showed any support for BLM and Antifa throughout the months of riots in 2020. Do Democrats really want to have this discussion?DONATE
