Answer Man: Madison Cawthorn has unpaid property taxes?

Question: Iíve heard that Madison Cawthornís property taxes are delinquent on his home in Henderson County. Is this true? Why isnít he paying his taxes?


Rep. Cawthorn, R-Hendersonville, does indeed have an overdue property tax bill on file with Henderson County.

"You are correct that Mr. Cawthornís property tax bill is unpaid," Darlene Burgess, tax administrator for Henderson County, told me in a Jan. 20 email. "Our property tax bills became delinquent two weeks ago."

Cawthorn's bill, listed under "David Madison Cawthorn," notes he owns a home on North Rugby Road. The home's assessed value is $437,300, and the unpaid property tax totals $3,037.58.

The bill was due Sept. 1, 2020, and interest began accruing Jan. 6, 2021, according to the bill.

1. Something stinks about this guy

Someone really needs to investigate this guy

I would have thought he got money from car accident but I read on Wikipedia

In 2014, at age 18, Cawthorn was injured while returning from a spring break trip in Florida. He was a passenger in an SUV on Interstate 4 near Daytona Beach when his friend fell asleep at the wheel and the SUV crashed into a concrete barrier.[11][12] The injuries left Cawthorn partially paralyzed, and he now uses a wheelchair.[5] He accrued $3 million in medical debt during his recovery.[13] His friend's insurance company offered him $3 million to cover his medical treatment, but Cawthorn sued the company for $30 million. A judge later ruled in the insurer's favor. After the accident, Cawthorn was employed as a staff assistant in Meadows's district office.[6]

And his jobs, the LLC looks fishy

Cawthorn worked as a staffer in the district office of Congressman Mark Meadows from January 2015 until August 2016.[14]

Cawthorn is the owner of SPQR Holdings, LLC, a real estate investment firm in Hendersonville. The firm was created in August 2019 and reported no income; he is its sole employee.[6] The initialism SPQR "has been embraced by skinhead gangs in Italy and by some white nationalists in the United States"[15] and is common on flags used by white supremacists.[15][16] Cawthorn claims he used the initials for his company name merely because it is "a term for Rome" and that "SPQR is a warning to my generation from the ages against tyranny and authoritarianism."[15] The Anti-Defamation League does not include SPQR in its hate symbol database, and the organization's Mark Pitcavage said that it is used "just as much or more often by nonextremists than extremists".[17]

8. My son, 26-yrs-old just bought his first home. Price, $475,000

So, yes, you can buy a house at that age -- unfortunately that is considered a starting home now. Blows my mind

Edit to add: I did loan him the down payment, so that helped. Doubt he could have pulled it off otherwise, but still blows my mind

12. Scumbag

His family has some money. He got grants to remodel his parent' home in Flat Rock after his accident. I've driven past his house on Rugby a million times. He's a tool.

His "wealth" is entirely due to his settlement with the insurance company after his car crash.
He's lied about that, too, throwing his best buddy under the bus saying he ran off and left him to die when his father told the Citizen Times the friend saved him. He then sued the insurance company for more. He's a grifter.

NPR has a story on what a piece of work he is, as does Jezebel, and the Asheville Paper. Even the local Hendersonville paper had a front page about Edwards regretting the Cawthorn decision.

He's a pretty face and an empty suit covering victimhood. The GOP is all about appearances, like adult children of alcoholics. He's nice looking at first glance, and the wheel chair protects him. "Oh, they're picking on poor, poor, pitiful Madison for being handicapped" or some such.

Chuck Edwards and the local GOP power players picked him and groomed him. He's dumb (home schooled, and a D average in college). He lied about getting into the Naval Academy--he was rejected when he HAD two good legs. His money is from lawsuits. He owns one piece of property via his real estate firm worth ~$40,000. He owes property taxes in the County. He's the worst kind of ooze.

He's a scofflaw. Laws for thee, but not for me.

The "lightly threaten" comment is going to land him in some hot water. The sooner the better.

9. If you can't pay a $3000 property tax, you can't afford a $437,000 house.
