A political motion committee that reportedly published a nude video of Madison Cawthorn grinding on a person is now targeting right-wing extremist Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.).
The American Muckrakers PAC (also often known as firemadison.com) is patting itself on the back for Cawthorn’s reelection loss on Tuesday. On Thursday it launched firebobert.com to tick off one other politician.
“We helped fire Madison Cawthorn. Now it’s Lauren Boebert’s turn,” says a message on the location.
The organization is in search of any suggestions on information, photos, videos, or documents on Boebert or her associates.
A @FireBoebert tweet posted on Friday taunts: “Hi Rep. Boebert — Ask Rep Cawthorn about us. We glance forwarding [sic] to attending to know you.”
David Wheeler, a cofounder of the American Muckrakers, told Business Insider this week that the organization was “going to go after Lauren Boebert” in a “similar way” to the way it attacked Cawthorn. “I feel we’re going to have interaction in that race pretty quickly,” he added.
Wheeler told Insider that he had already received “interesting information” about Boebert, whose primary against GOP state Sen. Don Coram is June 28. The data is “definitely not as salacious as among the Cawthorn stuff,” he added, though he didn’t reveal details.
Boebert’s office didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment from HuffPost.
Wheeler’s PAC also highlighted Cawthorn’s try and slip a gun through the Asheville Regional Airport last yr. It also filed a grievance accusing Cawthorn of violating House ethics rules by allegedly providing free housing and gifts to a staff member.
As for the video, Cawthorn said he was “being crass with a friend, attempting to be funny. We were acting silly, and joking. That’s it.”
Cawthorn lost the North Carolin GOP primary to state Sen. Chuck Edwards on Tuesday.
He vowed “dark MAGA” revenge against Republicans who didn’t have his back in a bitter tweet Thursday. He didn’t specify the retaliation, but did ominously warn that enemy Republicans’ days were “numbered.”
He added: “We’re coming.”
