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.

"On Covid, media emphasized bad news even when we had positive developments and did more Trump/hydroxychloroquine stories than all vaccine stories combined," he wrote. "Part of a broader pattern of characterizing everything as bad news Republicans are to be blamed for."

President Donald Trump was furious when, on Election Night, Fox News' decision desk called Arizona for Joe Biden — and many of Trump's followers share his sense of betrayal. Trump has been urging his MAGA base to look to sources other than Fox News or Fox Business for information, and according to Renée DiResta — a technical research manager at Stanford Internet Observatory — some right-wing social media outlets are happy to tell Trump devotees what they want to hear.
