A news website has published updated images of what it says show Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina wearing women’s clothes.

The website Politico published the images Friday, setting them in context of Cawthorn’s past expressions of his Christian faith and his disdain for what he’s criticized as the loose moral principles of Washington.
He made headlines last month with comments about drug-fueled orgies he said were taking place among lawmakers in the capital that appeared to implicate Republican colleagues, but later issued a statement disavowing that impression.
And he also announced that he and his wife were splitting up after only 8 short months of marriage.
Politico reported it “could not independently verify the photos, which are screenshots of original images.”
The outlet reported the images “were provided to Politico by a person formerly close to Cawthorn and his campaign. A second person formerly close to Cawthorn and his campaign confirmed the origin of the photos.”
Cawthorn, 26, was an athlete in high school who has used a wheelchair since a serious car accident when he was 18.
Many reports have published his way through politics to be built following the footsteps of President Trump.
“The date the photos were taken is unclear, though they appear to show Cawthorn sitting in a wheelchair, indicating the event happened after his accident,” Politico reported. “In the photos, he is wearing a distinctive pendant necklace that has appeared in other images and videos of Cawthorn. The photos have started to circulate among political rivals.”
Cawthorn is seeking re-election, and faces a Republican primary on May 17. He has successfully fended off an attempt to keep him off the ballot because of the Jan. 6, 2021, incursion at the Capitol.
Cawthorn himself didn’t stay silent, but has declared those images to be ‘goofy vacation phoos’ and nothing else. Everything else is taken way out of context.
I guess the left thinks goofy vacation photos during a game on a cruise (taken waaay before I ran for Congress) is going to somehow hurt me?
They're running out of things to throw at me…

The tweet contained a link to a report about the game Cawthorn referred to.
Cawthorn later replied to one of his critics.
My gender didn’t change when I put that stuff on.
And neither does anyone else’s. https://t.co/EVZbzZaMRt

This is a big miss from POLITICO given Rep Cawthorn’s explanation and the article he linked to about the cruise ship game. They basically accuse him of being a hypocrite and a bad Christian. pic.twitter.com/ED2oBduX8x

That’s why they’re endorsed by President Trump and backed by the American people.
I’m praying for them and I stand with them.

What do you believe it’s the actual truth?
As a true report – my job is to report – and ask questions. I can not state my opinion and make you think my way.
