A Republican lawmaker from Pennsylvania is under criminal investigation for drugging and raping a woman in the capital city of Harrisburg, reports Pennlive.

Rep. Brian Ellis (R-Butler County) is being investigated by the Dauphin County District Attorney’s office for an incident that took place outside a bar in the city.

According to the report, Ellis and the woman were at the same bar when she fell down, hard, suffering injuries.

“We want to make it very clear that she was not voluntarily intoxicated. This woman was incapacitated,” the state’s Victim Advocate said on her behalf. “She does believe that she was drugged and that she did seek medical attention the following day because she was in pain and she did indeed have a concussion and other injuries.”

Ellis reportedly knew the woman as a “workplace acquaintance at the Capitol” and “offered to help her get home” but the woman says he instead took her to his residence and raped her.

The victim’s advocate said she has talked to people inside the capital who were “supportive” but that she believes the Republican should “resign immediately” because he should not be “allowed to walk in that building.”

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who has been critical of Trump's decisions in the past months, pointed out the factoid in a tweet Wednesday evening, asking, "Is this the America you grew up believing in?"

"On Wednesday, the U.S. military said two F-15E jet fighters carried out an airstrike to destroy an ammunition-storage facility, latrines, tents and other parts of the Syria headquarters of the American campaign to destroy Islamic State after pulling its forces from the base," reported The Journal.

The filing, part of the House Judiciary Committee's attempt to seek testimony from ex-White House Counsel Don McGahn, cites the White House's repeated efforts to block current and former Trump administration officials from testifying — and even some allies of Trump who have never held any position in his government.
