The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn was charged earlier this month for driving with a revoked license, a Class 3 misdemeanor in home state North Carolina that carries a maximum sentence of 20 days in jail, according to a news report Wednesday.
The 26-year-old lawmaker was pulled over at 10:26 a.m. on March 3 in Cleveland County by a highway patrolman when the Toyota Truck he was driving drifted across the center line.
"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," said Sgt. Marcus Bethea, of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.
Cawthorn also is facing two speeding citations, both of which occurred in the last six months in North Carolina.
In his most recent citation, the patrolman noted that the congressman was "very polite and cooperative."
His court date is May 6. This is the second time Cawthorn has been charged with driving with a revoked license.
