SC preacher arrested on sexual misconduct charges after video busts him touching underage girls — again

Published

on

A rural South Carolina preacher was arrested this week on sexual misconduct charges after several videos suggested that he had sexually harassed members of his congregation and inappropriately groped underage girls.

The Post and Courier reported on Monday that preacher Ralph Gordon Stair had been arrested by Colleton sheriff’s deputies that morning after several women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.

A report by the paper earlier this year found that Stair had been part of an ongoing investigation by local and federal law enforcement officials, including the FBI.

In a video that surfaced on YouTube, Stair was allegedly seen inappropriately touching underage girls. In another video, a former member of Stair’s congregation accused him of sexual misconduct.

Colleton County Sheriff Andy Strickland said that he was “very concerned” after viewing the videos.

“The allegations against Stair based on the video are not the first time he has been accused of inappropriate contact with an underage female,” The Post and Courier pointed out in October. “Stair appeared in Colleton County General Sessions Court in November of 2004, approximately two years after being charged with improperly touching two of his young female church members.”

Stair eventually pleaded guilty to reduced charges of assault and battery in that case, allowing him to avoid addition jail time and having to register as a sex offender.

However, a review conducted by the Tampa Bay Times has found that McEnany herself has voted by mail a total of 11 times in the past decade alone.

"In fact, the Tampa native has voted by mail in every Florida election she has participated in since 2010," the Tampa Bay Times has found. "Most recently, she voted by mail in the state’s March 2020 presidential primary, just as Trump did after he made Florida his new permanent home."

This Wednesday morning, President Trump's son, Eric Trump, took a dig at Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) by tweeting out an old video featuring Nadler saying that "paper ballots are extremely susceptible to fraud," in an attempt to paint Democrats as hypocrites in light of President Trump's disparagement of mail-in voting.

"At least with the old clunky voting machines that we have in New York, deliberate fraud is way down," Nadler says in the video.
