News On The Move: John McAfee arrested, SC changes ballot requirement, Walmart fruit recall

Yahoo Finance's Adam Shapiro and Julie Hyman cover Tuesday's trending stories.

Video Transcript

JULIE HYMAN: Time for "News on the Move" now. John McAfee has been arrested in Spain on tax evasion charges, accused of failing to file tax returns in 2014 to 2018 and hiding assets in real estate, a vehicle and a yacht. McAfee, the eccentric cybersecurity pioneer whose name still graces that popular antivirus software, allegedly earns millions of dollars by hyping cryptocurrencies, among other things. But he didn't mail tax returns, according to the US government. He faces up to a total of six years in prison.

ADAM SHAPIRO: The Supreme Court sided with South Carolina Republicans to reinstate a legal mandate that absentee ballots require a witness signature. The decision overturns lower court rulings that the coronavirus puts an undue burden on voters to safely get a witness to co-sign their ballot. Ballots already cast and those mailed today and tomorrow without witness signatures, they will still be counted. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote, quote, "This court has repeatedly emphasized that federal courts ordinarily should not alter state election rules in the period close to an election."

JULIE HYMAN: Fresh-cut fruits sold at Walmart in nine states is being recalled by the producer. Cut or sliced apples, grapes, mangoes, pineapples, and cantaloupe distributed by Walmart in nine states may have been contaminated with listeria and could be dangerous to eat. Packages with best-if-used-by dates between October 3rd and October 11th and sold in states including Illinois and Texas are subject to that recall. You can find full details on the FDA's website.
