(AmericanPoliticalDaily.Com)- A Joe Biden delegate for the Democratic National Convention expressed his belief that Tara Reade, a former Senate staffer who accused Biden of sexually assaulting her, must have cooperated during the incident.
New Hampshire state representative Richard Komi resigned after making the insane suggestion on Twitter, describing how he believes the position of the vagina would make it impossible for Biden to non-consensual penetrate.
Komi even said that he believed Reade was just “looking for attention” and blamed her for her own, alleged, sexual assault.
The tweet was deleted, but not before many online commentators captured a screenshot and posted it.
“New Hampshire Dem Rep Richard Komi says a man can only penetrate a woman’s vagina with ‘cooperation from the woman,’” Sara Gonzales wrote.

“Wow. The Dems are REALLY bad at this,” she added.
Reade admitted in April that Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993 in a corridor in the Senate building. She alleges that Biden pushed her against a wall, kissed and touched her, and then put his hand up her skirt and penetrated her with his fingers. There is no evidence that the incident occurred, but many people have corroborated the story and said that Reade told them about it at the time.
Komi was one of several prominent Democrats who have refused to take Reade’s story seriously.
“Judging by the position of the female vagina, it will not be easy for anyone to just put their fingers into the vagina unless there is some Cooperation from the female herself,” he said. “That is why I believe Tara Reade’s allegation is false. She is looking for attention.”
Can you imagine being a lifelong Democrat, as Reade is, only to have her party turn against her when she bravely stands up to one of the biggest figures in the party?
As soon as Komi’s superiors in the New Hampshire House of Representatives saw the comments, they demanded his resignation. New Hampshire House Speaker Steve Shurtleff said he was “appalled” by Komi’s comments.
“They were dismissive and hurtful to survivors of sexual assault across the Granite State and across the country. The comments are not fitting for the New Hampshire House of Representatives and immediately upon learning of them I called him and asked Representative Komi to resign his seat.”
That’s one gone, but there are still many Democrats out there attacking Reade.
