North Carolina Republican Representative Madison Cawthorn, who is openly transphobic and anti-LGBTQ+, is under fire after photos of him in women’s lingerie emerged.
Cawthorn has staked his political career on his image as an arch-conservative, pro-family, Evangelical Christian Republican who exhibits all of the supposedly hyper-masculine bona fides adulated by the far-right.
Pictures of him in women’s lingerie, of course, run counter to all of that and have led many to accuse Cawthorn of hypocrisy.
The photos, which Cawthorn says were taken during a nightclub game aboard a cruise ship, were obtained by Politico from a former associates of Cawthorn’s.
