Rep. Madison Cawthorn

A group of non-politicians proposed this representation and presented evidence to the Office of Parliamentary Ethics

Madison Cawthorne may have broken the rules regarding her relationship with one of her employees.

The Fire Madison Cawthorne group, run by the American Muckrakers PAC

accused a North Carolina lawmaker for ethical violations, including paying his employee and closest aide, 23-

year-old Steven Smith, thousands of dollars in gifts, loans and other benefits. Not reported.

The document also reveals that Cawthorn had an inappropriate relationship with Smith

that was "separated and separate from the professional relationship" between employers and employees.
