Couple Married by Ginsburg Arrested For Suspicion of Rape


A gay couple that was married by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was just arrested on suspicion of rape, the Daily Mail is reporting:

A famous opera singer and his husband have been arrested on suspicion of raping a young singer who claims he was left bleeding from the rectum after blacking out at an after-show party with the pair in Texas, in 2010.

David Daniels, 52, and his conductor husband Scott Walters, 37, were arrested in Michigan, where they live, on Tuesday night.

They are being held in county jail and aware awaiting extradition to Houston where they are accused of raping Samuel Schultz after a performance in 2010.

The pair have been arrested but claim they are innocent and that the accuser is seeking publicity:

He said he decided to report the pair to police after eight years because he was emboldened by the #MeToo movement.

A Houston Police Department spokesman confirmed the pair’s arrest on Wednesday but would not give further details.

They remain behind bars in Michigan. Their extradition may be delayed because of the severe weather conditions in Michigan.An attorney for the couple told on Wednesday that they were innocent and that Schultz was merely trying to make a name for himself.

‘David and Scott are innocent of any wrongdoing. Sam Schultz is not a victim.

He waited eight years to complain about adult, consensual sex to ride the MeToo movement to unearned celebrity. We will fight this,’ Matt Hennessy said.

Apparently, this is not the first complaint against at least one of the pair:

Daniels has been accused in the past of soliciting men on Grindr and was reported to police in 2017 for allegedly asking a man to perform a sex act through the app.

No charges were ever brought.

He has also previously faced complaints from students at the University of Michigan, where he is a tenured professor including one who sued him in October.

The Daily Mail reports the couple was married by Justice Ginsburg in 2014.
