SD House candidate arrested on suspicion of rape days after losing election


The new charges come just days after May suffered a loss in his race to represent District 27 in the South Dakota House of Representatives. Running as a Republican candidate, May garnered 22% of the 10,599 votes cast. His mother, incumbent Rep. Liz May, R-Kyle, won re-election 27% of the vote in the four-way race, while Democratic incumbent Peri Pourier also won re-election with 29% of the vote.
