Madison Cawthorn charged with driving with revoked license for 2nd time; court dates set.

Congressman Madison Cawthorn has been charged with driving with a revoked license, a misdemeanor that carries up to 20 days in jail.

"The driver was identified as David Madison Cawthorn, 26 years old of Hendersonville, N.C.," he said.

"During the course of the investigation it was determined that the driver’s license was in a state of revocation and he was subsequently charged with driving while license revoked.".

Cawthorn has been charged before with driving after having his license taken away.

Before he was a U.S. House member, a 2017 charge of driving while license revoked was dismissed in Buncombe, court records show.

A friend who was driving fell asleep while Cawthorn slept in the passenger seat, according to his 2019 federal court filing against the insurance company. »

And while Ukraine has stepped up calls for Western allies to supply it with military jets, providing Kyiv with warplanes poses serious risks. »
