Good luck to all
 who oppose Cawthorn

To the Editor: 

I will be so happy for this uneducated, law-breaking manchild — Rep.  Madison Cawthorn — to be voted out of office soon and let him slither back under the rock he came from.

He joins a list from here of embarrassing, disgraceful elected politicians like Rep. Mark Meadows (what’s your address?) and others who have done nothing for Western North Carolinian voters but grandstand for self-gain and political advances to push their outrageous personal anti-democratic agenda in the media or worse quietly under the sheets (not the kind you sleep on).  

I think Cawthorn may be the worst yet because he is so young, inexperienced in life and obviously no student of world history. Yet in between his run-ins with the law, he frequently spouts blatant headline grabbing ignorant statements about issues that he obviously needs to do his homework on before speaking. Its public officials like him and others that make us all look like a bunch of dumb (fill in the blank) fools forever voting these yahoos into office to start with.  

Please deliver us all from this current clown-in place and replace him with a grownup that actually has an education, some life experience and who truly cares about our western mountains and the new challenges we are facing now. Good luck to all the candidates running against him and good riddance.
