Republican Rep.-elect Madison Cawthorn vowed he will “not be silent” in his objections to the 2020 presidential election.
The newly-elected 25-year-old representing North Carolina posted a video explaining his first act as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, which will be to join more than 100 of his colleagues in objecting to the Electoral College certification of the election expected to hand Joe Biden the presidency.
“I want to explain to you why I’m objecting,” Cawthorn said in the more than six-minute video in which he urged Americans not to let their voices be canceled by “bastards” who seek to undermine the Constitution.
“Because the future of our very nation depends on it.” he added as he began to establish “irrefutable facts” in his defense of every American’s right to vote in a free and fair election.

“Your vote is sacred in America. A free, fair and legal election is our birthright as Americans,” Cawthorn added, before stating that “voter fraud is common” in the nation.
“Those who are telling you otherwise are lying,” he said, citing “thousands of recent instances” of election fraud that have not only led to criminal convictions, but have also overturned election results in some instances.
“You deserve to know when the sanctity of your vote has been violated. Put simply, the 2020 election violated our Constitution,” he continued, noting the law which holds that state legislatures are “solely responsible for determining presidential electors.”
“So the question on the legality of the 2020 election becomes simple. Were state laws followed?” he asked. “No. No, they were not.”
The youngest person elected to Congress then cited Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan and Minnesota, Nevada and Wisconsin as examples of states where election laws were “either broken or ignored completely.”
At least 140 House Republicans are expected to vote against the vote certification next week when Congress formally meets to count the Electoral College votes. U.S. Senator Josh Hawley announced that he would object to the certification of the election results, becoming the first GOP senator to openly join Republican House members and thereby force a debate and vote in both the chambers of Congress.
Cawthorn, who was partially paralyzed in a near-fatal car wreck when he was only 18, succeeded Rep. Mark Meadows in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District. Meadows stepped down last year to become President Trump’s chief of staff.
Cawthorn went on to give an overview of election violations in the contested states, citing examples of issues with mail-in ballots, signature verifications, deadlines and even poll watchers on Election Day.
“These flagrant violations of state law mixed with the massive, late-night mail-in ballot drops in key swing states, the corrupted election technology, illegal counting practices, dead voters and mathematically impossible vote irregularities, leads to me to question the sanctity of our election results,” Cawthorn said.
“I believe if these states had followed their own laws, the election results would be markedly different,” the congressman-elect added.
“The Constitution clearly states that state legislatures, not state courts, not governors, not the media – and most certainly not Facebook or Twitter – are expressly given the power to determine electors for the president of the United States,” he said.
“Congress can and should eject a state’s electors when elections are not held in accordance with state law or when election results are corrupted,” Cawthorn explained.
“I plan on doing just that,” he announced, saying he will be objecting to the electors from the states under scrutiny, and that he “will not countenance a motion to select electors on the behalf of one candidate” without assurance of integrity in the election process.
“Every elected official who cares about the future of our nation should join me,” Cawthorn urged. “The sanctity of our vote is the only thing separating our public from tyranny. If we don’t act now, our votes will become meaningless, our republic will crumble and the America that we know and love will be forever lost.”
“Your vote. Your voice. Do not let your voice get canceled by these bastards,” he declared.
“The amount of fraud we should tolerate in our election is zero,” he concluded. “That is why I will object.”
