Meadows, Cawthorn Are A Disgrace

As the national soul searching continues in the wake of the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, I write to encourage my N.C. 11 neighbors to do some reflection on the role they played.
If you voted for Rep. Mark Meadows, you supported the man who encouraged President Trump in his delusions about a “rigged” election. If you voted for Rep. Madison Cawthorn, you endorsed a man who was willing to disenfranchise 10 million voters without a shred of credible evidence of fraud. He did this even after neo-Nazis, anti-Semites and Confederate flag waving rioters, ransacked the Capitol, terrorizing Congress, causing five people to be killed and destroying our national reputation as a beacon of democracy.
Cawthorn addressed the president’s “Stop the Steal” rally just before the insurrection began. He riled up the crowd, calling Republicans who refused to go along with the coup “cowards.”
