A Catholic priest in Texas this week was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault after he was accused of inappropriately groping the woman to whom he was delivering last rites.

The Associated Press, via the Houston Chronicle, reports that the Rev. Gerold Langsch, a 75-year-old priest from Austin, was arrested for an encounter he’d had last year with a woman who was in home hospice care and who was suffering from complications related to diabetes.

The woman, who did not die from her illness, has now told police that Langsch fondled her nipple and unsuccessfully tried to get his hands through her underwear to grope her genitals.

“The woman later told police the priest’s actions left her in shock, uncomfortable, confused and feeling like, she told police, a ‘nasty, dirty piece of meat,'” the AP reports.

Catholic Diocese of Austin revealed on Wednesday that it had already severed ties with Langsch after an unrelated report that he had “failed to maintain proper boundaries with an adult,” although this different report did not involve any physical contact.

According to the president, "The @foxnewPolls, always inaccurate, are heavily weighted toward Dems. So ridiculous - same thing happened in 2016. They got it all wrong. Get a new pollster!"

Trump launches furious attack on Obama, Comey and IG Horowitz — then demands an apology

Published

on

Grabbing onto any straw he can, Donald Trump launched a multi-tweet attack on Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz and former FBI Director James Comey, while insisting that everything he has done has been on the up-and-up -- and snapped at former President Barack Obama while he was at it.

According to the president, "As bad as the I.G. Report is for the FBI and others, and it is really bad, remember that I.G. Horowitz was appointed by Obama. There was tremendous bias and guilt exposed, so obvious, but Horowitz couldn’t get himself to say it. Big credibility loss. Obama knew everything!"
