“Madison Cawthorn sues NC to stop inquiry into his role in Jan. 6 attack on Congress”

NC News and Observer:

North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn, whose eligibility to run for reelection to Congress is being formally challenged, has now begun his legal fight against that effort. Aside from a blanket one-sentence denial, Cawthorn does not address the allegations against him — namely, that he supported and possibly even helped plan the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on Congress by supporters of Republican President Donald Trump attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Rather, his lawsuit says the N.C. State Board of Elections has no authority to keep him off the ballot in the first place, and so the challenge against him should be dropped and the state law allowing for such challenges should be ruled unconstitutional.
