Conservatives be screaming about drag queens reading from story books to kids in a library, but this failed South Dakota house candidate is out and about getting charged with second-degree rape. Worry about him, kids…
From the Rapid City ABC News affiliate:
Bud Marty May, 37, of Kyle, was first arrested on Nov. 13 on one count of second-degree rape. This a class 1 felony that could carry up to 50 years in prison and would have May pay up to a $50,000 fine.
The alleged victim said May decided to force himself on the victim in a bathroom stall at a bar and says May said to her at the bar: “I am 6′8″, white, it is all consensual.”
According to the police report, he fled the area, and upon being detained he claimed he had no involvement at first, then claimed: “it was simply a hug.”
His bond was set today at $7,500 with a no-contact order regarding the victim. His preliminary hearing is set for November 30 at 11:30 a.m.
Note: May lost his state House race to his mom.
