Shortly after the video was leaked on Twitter, Cawthorn said: “A new attack against me was released.”
He said: “Years ago, in this video, I was silly with a buddy, trying to appear humorous. We were acting silly and laughing. That’s it. I’m NOT backing down.

Madison Cawthorn has found himself in the middle of several scandals.
The leaked video is one more in the series of scandals and embarrassing leaks for Cawthorn.
In the past few months, Politico has published images that look like they show Cawthorn sporting the Lingerie of what appears to be a party-like setting. In the following days, it was revealed that The Daily Mailleaked footage that shows Cawthorn seated in a vehicle as a member of his team, Stephen L Smith, grasps his bottom.

The media believes that playing a sport on a cruise vessel with my family and friends is a sign that I cannot be a member of Congress.
Cawthorn addressed Cawthorn’s Politico article with photos of him wearing Lingerie.
“This piece is pushing the absurd notion that I’m a drag queen apart from being a congressman,” the politician said in his defense, before saying that Politicodoesn’t possess the same standards of journalism as Fox News or Newsmax.
The photos of him in Lingerie were taken while he was in Congress. He added: “Ask yourself this, Have you ever taken an unprofessional photo while on vacation? A majority of people have. The media believes that playing a silly games on a cruise vessel with my family and friends is a sign that I am not eligible to serve in Congress. This is absurd. My mother was in that crowd. And if you think I’d do something insensitive to my mother I’m sure you don’t know what a southern mother is like.”

Cawthorn was also in touch with the video posted in the Daily Mail showing his staffer, which is his brother taking his crotch.
The congressman described it as “just silly locker room conversation between two cousins who have been raised like brothers” and added that it was “taken many years before my time as a member of Congress.”
Cawthorn has repeatedly spoken out about LGBTQ+ rights.
The news has upset some in the LGBTQ+ community because Cawthorn has frequently utilized the platform to protest against LGBTQ+ rights and liberties.
In his first election campaign, Cawthorn pledged to be “a solid advocate for family, faith, and freedom,” but that freedom has not been extended to LGBTQ persons.
He once stated “that the LGBTQ+ rights movement was about “two people who wanted to marry” and that the movement ought to have been over by now.
“But now , it’s saying we must be able to perform gender reassignment surgery on 12 year olds. They have never stopped at a point. They always go further.” Cawthorn said on the Charlie Kirk Showing 2020.
Cawthorn has been repeatedly accused of harassment and sexual misconduct. In 2020, a group of his former students at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia, told Buzzfeed News that he had employed his vehicle to “entrap and intimidate” women.
The allegations were made within a year when similar misconduct allegations nearly derailed his presidential campaign.
