An 18-month-old video of GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn explaining the bizarre way he met his soon-to-be ex-wife emerged on Twitter this weekend.

Cawthorn, 26, originally shared the story, which includes a Russian casino, a US Army captain, and a faux CrossFit competition, in an interview with Stephanie Hamill from the Daily Caller, a right-wing site, in June 2020.

The congressman, who represents North Carolina, recounted how he was on vacation in St. Petersburg, Russia, with several friends. Cawthorn said he embarked on "one last trip" before undergoing back surgery that he feared would prevent him from flying again.

"We just decided to take $100 each and go into a casino and see how it went," Cawthorn said. Cawthorn did not mention how he gained access to a casino in St. Petersburg since gambling and casinos have been banned in Russia since 2009, with the exception of four zones in the country's far east.
