A state representative has resigned over a statement made on Twitter about the woman accusing former Vice President Joe Biden of sexual assault.

The tweet, which Rep. Richard Komi (D-Manchester) later deleted, said he thought the woman who alleges Biden sexually assaulted her, would have to have consented to the encounter, based on Komi’s understanding of the female anatomy.

House Speaker Steve Shurtleff asked Komi to resign Friday.
