A state legislator in New Hampshire resigned Saturday after he posted a tweet that dismissed sexual assault allegations against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden as unlikely because of the way women’s bodies are constructed.

Rep. Richard Komi, a Manchester Democrat, tweeted that a woman’s anatomy would make it difficult to digitally penetrate her without “some cooperation from the female herself.” He said that was why he believed former Senate staffer Tara Reade’s allegations against Biden were false. He also accused Reade of “looking for attention.” Biden has denied the allegations.
