In che modo il rappresentante GOP è stato lasciato disabilitato & accusato di mentire come lui & moglie bodybuilder divisa

IN 2020 Madison Cawthorn became one of the youngest people ever elected to serve in the US Congress at the age of just 25.

The Republican – adesso 26 – had already faced incredible challenges in his lifetime after he was paralysed in a 2014 car crash.

He was later accused of lying about the circumstances of the crash after claiming he wasleft to diein the horror smash.

Then on Wednesday, Cawthorn announced that he was separating from his wife of less than a year, Cristina Bayardelle.

The rising political star cited “differenze inconciliabili” in una dichiarazione. He added the pressures of his new job in politics had changed their lives “durante la notte”.

Here The Sun looks at Cawthorn’s life in the public eye, from announcing his engagement to standing at the Republican National Convention and sharing news of his wedding online.

PARALYSED IN CAR CRASH

Cawthorn was 18 when he was critically injured in 2014 in Daytona Beach, Florida, after a car he was riding in struck a concrete pylon.

After the near death experience, Cawthorn said in one interview: “There is no time to wait. Life is precious and it can be taken away at any time.”

He was riding as a passenger in a BMW X3 SUV when his friend Bradley Ledford fell asleep behind the wheel.

The car crashed into a concrete barrier while Cawthorn’s feet were on the dashboard.

Le ferite dell'incidente hanno lasciato Cawthorn parzialmente paralizzato dalla vita in giù, e he now uses a wheelchair.

ACCUSED OF LYING

In un 2017 discorso, Cawthorn ha detto che Ledford lo ha lasciato “morire in una tomba di fuoco,” tuttavia, Ledford ha pubblicamente contestato questo in 2021 dicendo che ha tirato fuori Cawthorn dal relitto una volta scappato dall'auto.

Nelle loro deposizioni, Cawthorn ha dichiarato di aver “nessun ricordo dell'incidente,” mentre Ledford ha detto che aveva aiutato a salvare un Cawthorn privo di sensi.

In un'intervista a Persone, Ledford ha spiegato cosa è successo subito dopo l'incidente – e come lui e Cawthorn hanno ristabilito il loro legame.

“Lui e io ne abbiamo passate tante insieme,” Ledford ha detto all'outlet.

Cawthorn ha sofferto “invalidante” e “life-threatening” lesioni, poiché il veicolo è esploso in fiamme quasi immediatamente dopo l'impatto.

Ledford ha detto che ha rapidamente “riconosciuto che Maddy [Cawthorn] era incosciente e [io] si rendeva conto che la situazione stava peggiorando sempre di più.”

Ledford ha spiegato come si è mosso verso Cawthorn e ha sentito un calore intenso sul braccio destro, poi si rese conto che le fiamme stavano avvolgendo la metà posteriore del SUV.

Ha provato ad aprire la portiera lato guida per scappare, ma era inceppato. Ha provato a buttare fuori il parabrezza, ma non si sposterebbe.

Anziché, Ledford ha detto, allungò una mano su Cawthorn e diede un pugno al finestrino del passeggero.

È sceso, atterrò sul cemento e subito si voltò per slacciare Cawthorn, con cui supplicava di svegliarsi, lui dice.

“Mentre lo tiravo fuori dalla finestra, un passante è passato e mi ha aiutato a portarlo via dalla macchina,” Ledford ha detto.

“Ricordo che la sua gamba era stata tagliata piuttosto male dall'incidente ed eravamo seduti sul lato dell'autostrada,” Ledford ha ricordato.

“Quindi mi sono tolto la maglietta e l'ho avvolta intorno alla sua gamba e poi sono rimasta con lui finché non sono arrivati ​​i paramedici.”

Nella notte delle elezioni di novembre 2020, Cawthorn radunò la sua famiglia e i suoi amici in attesa di una vittoria, e si unì a lui c'era Ledford.

“Questo è il ragazzo che mi ha salvato la vita,” Cawthorn ha detto di Ledford.

HITLER POST

Cawthorn found himself in hot water over an Instagram post celebrating hisbucket listvisit to Adolf Hitler’s HQ.

The visit – nel 2017 – was to Hitler’s German vacation house called theEagle’s Nest.

He would later remove the post.

ANNOUNCES ENGAGEMENT

Cawthorn introduced his fiancée to the public in a tweet, descrivendo Bayardelle come assistente anestesista e atleta CrossFit.

Bayardelle ha detto che la coppia si è incontrata tramite un amico comune e "si sono piaciuti",” e dopo quattro mesi “sapeva che era lui”.

Crawthorn asked cross fit athelete Cristina Bayardelle to marry him in 2019.

“Uomo, I feel like that diamond was created just for her. So joy filled and in love,” Cawthorn wrote on Instagram.

STANDS AT RNC

Cawthorn delivered a speech at the Republican National Convention in August last year during which he stood up from his wheelchair with the help of a walker.

Cawthorn recounted the moment he was left paralyzed and wheelchair-bound after getting into a car accident in 2014 a solo 18 Anni.

“A 20, I thought about giving up. tuttavia, I knew I could still make a difference. My accident gave me new eyes to see, and new ears to hear,” Egli ha detto.

“A 20, I made a choice. In 2020, our country has a choice. We can give up on the American idea, or we can work together to make our imperfect union more perfect.

Lui continuò: “I choose to fight for the future, to seize the high ground and retake the Shining City on a Hill.

While the radical left wants to dismantle, defund, and destroy, Republicans, under President Trump’s leadership, want to rebuild, restore and renew.

Cawthorn closed his speech by urging Americans not tocower to a mob” e per “kneel before God but stand for our flag.

He then rose from his wheelchair and stood behind a walker as he said: “Be a radical for liberty and be a radical for our republic for which I stand, one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all.

WINS ELECTION

Cawthorn was elected to represent a western North Carolina U.S. House district in November last year.

He had first drawn attention after defeating Donald Trump’s preferred candidate in an upset in the June GOP primary runoff.

Cawthorn had worked as a staffer in former White House chief of staff Mark Meadow’s district office from 2015 per 2016.

GETS MARRIED

The couple got hitched in April, sharing pictures of the day online.

After their marriage Cawthorn wrote online: “Il 3 aprile di 2014 la mia vita è cambiata. Un incidente d'auto mi ha messo su una sedia a rotelle e ha deluso le mie speranze per il futuro.

“Il 3 aprile di 2021, la mia vita è cambiata ancora una volta.

“Sposare Cristina Bayardelle, ora Cristina Cawthorn è il più grande onore, privilege and adventure of my life.

SPLITS FROM WIFE

In dicembre Cawthorn announced he was divorcing his wife of less than a year and blamed his role in Congress for the split.

He said in a statement thatovernight their lives changedfollowing his election win.

Ha aggiunto: “When my wife Cristina and I were engaged, I was not a member of Congress.

I felt called to serve and we both agreed that I should run. Our victory was unprecedented.

But overnight, our lives changed.

That change has been both hectic and difficult. It’s neither the pace nor the lifestyle we had planned for.

He cited “differenze inconciliabili” as the reason for their split and added: “While it was an enormously difficult decision, Cristina and I have mutually decided to divorce.

We ask for privacy as we work through this privately.
