The Nation reports:
Multiple outlets reported that before he ran for office, Cawthorn was training for the 2020 Paralympic Games. There is little detail, but according to Micah Bock, Cawthorn’s campaign communications director, he intended to compete in the 400-meter dash at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
Cawthorn frequently said on social media that he was “training” for the Paralympic Games. Technically, such a statement could be true—but only in the sense that I could be training for the Olympic Games.
Patrick Henry College, which Cawthorn attended for a semester before dropping out, doesn’t have a disabled sports program. In addition to not being on a team, Cawthorn does not appear to have competed in any qualifying races.
Read the full article. There’s much more. As most of you probably know, Cawthorn also lied about his business history and his nomination to the US Naval Academy.
