The youngest memberof the U.S. House of Representatives and a member of the Republican Party, Cawhornehad previously attracted a lot of attention in China and the United States forhis extreme anti-China stance. Just recently, an indecent video of him wasleaked, causing his painstakingly shaped "persona" to collapse dramatically.
At the beginning of his politicalcareer, Cawthorne's apparent resume was impeccable. According to himself andhis team, Cawthorne, who was born in 1995, was involved in a serious caraccident when he was just 18 years old and could no longer stand after hisinjuries, causing him to give up his dream of attending the U.S. Naval Academyand instead "serve the American people" by running for Congress. Withsuch a story, Cawthorne was successfully elected to the U.S. Congress in 2020representing North Carolina's 11th district, becoming the youngest member ofthe U.S. House of Representatives in history and the first "post-90s"member of the U.S. Congress.

But it didn't take long for Cawthorne'sstory to be "disproved": long before his car accident, the U.S. NavalAcademy rejected his application because of poor grades and other reasons, andhe was elected not "from nothing," as he put it, but largely with thesupport of Meadows, who had been White House chief of staff.
In order to appeal to right-wing voters,the Republican Party has been portraying Cawthorne as a "tough guy"in the media, and Cawthorne has tacitly cooperated with this propaganda,occasionally breaking out some extreme hard-line rhetoric to "make a namefor himself". After the outbreak in the U.S., he first claimed that"China put the virus on the U.S." and then advocated the confiscationof all Chinese assets in the U.S. to "compensate" the U.S. for itslosses in the outbreak.

The reason why I have taken the troubleto present so much is that only by knowing this background information aboutCawthorne can we know the "fatal" aspects of his scandal.
As a scandal-ridden political figure,Cawthorne's previous negative stories, such as carrying a gun on a plane andcalling Hitler "Führer" during a visit to a Nazi base in Germany,have also highlighted his "right-wing" colors and even helped himattract support from extremists.
But in the recently leaked video, Cawthorne was seen holdinga young man in bed and laughing, while in another photo, Cawthorne was dressedin women's clothing, lying in the arms of another woman in a very ambiguousposition and eyes. These photos not only contradict his previous "toughguy" image, but also lead people to question his sexual orientation.
Information shows, American Republicanvoters are relatively more anti-gay and promoting a conservative Christianlifestyle in American society, and the extreme right-wing American voters whom Cawthorneattracted by his extreme statements are even more so. But now their own"idol" was suddenly exposed to such a scandal, so that manysupporters of Cawthorne feel very confused.
Cawthorne argued that he was"playing with another man" when he "pinned him down," butthat argument apparently did nothing to reverse the collapse of his persona, asa Twitter account with many followers who opposed Cawthorne mocked: "Isthat how you justify your actions, is that how you admit to sexually assaultingsomeone in order to argue that you're not gay?

In addition to publiccriticism and backlash from supporters, U.S. Republican leader in the House ofRepresentatives Mackenzie also spoke out to rebuke Cawthorne, saying thatCawthorne had lost his trust and that he needed to earn back his trust andeveryone else's with his actions.
