A prominent South Carolina property developer and former board member of local Episcopal school has been arrested and charged with raping a woman after reportedly slipping something into her wine that caused her to pass out.

According to WYFF, Marcus Sewell McCall, 59 has been charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct over the attack which occurred in early October.

According to the report, McCall is the principal owner and managing member of McCall Capital LLC, an asset management and development based in Greenville with assets valued at an estimated $200 million.

In a statement, Greenville County Sheriff’s Office investigators state the unidentified woman described McCall giving her a glass of wine between Oct. 8 and Oct. 11, after which she said she felt disoriented before falling in and out of consciousness.

The woman told investigators she discovered evidence she had been sexually assaulted when she woke up.

According to investigators, McCall appears to have drugged the woman with a substance they described a “date rape” drug.

The developer, who served on the board of Christ Church Episcopal School from 2007 – 2011, was being held in the Greenville County Detention Center with bail set at $50,000.

Michigan state Rep. Karen Whitsett (D) pushed back against Fox News host Pete Hegseth on Sunday after he attacked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in the aftermath of the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

"Karen, I will start with you," the Fox News host continued. "Comrade Cortez says let this moment radicalize you. Is that what this should do for Democrats?"

Donald Trump may push Senate Republicans to try to jam a Supreme Court nominee through before the election, but I think it's more likely that he'll opt to run on the vacancy given that it's an issue that could bring Republicans who don't like him back into the fold. It would be better for him than running against the Democratic backlash that would follow a hasty confirmation before the election. And Senate Majority Mitch McConnell would also be hard-pressed to usher through a confirmation in that brief period, and he has vulnerable members who need to be home campaigning.

Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (I-AK) have said that they will not vote for a nominee before next year's inauguration. Mitt Romney (R-UT) was reportedly against moving a nominee this year as well, although his press secretary denied the accuracy of the story.

Are you kidding me? Sedition? From 1798?

Barr to federal prosecutors to use a two-century-old law to stop people – no, specifically “violent” leftist protests outside federal courthouses – from seeking to overthrow the government should make us stop and scratch our collective heads.
