This is probably not the news that Paul Ryan wanted to break on the eve of the vice presidential debate:

A Wisconsin state lawmaker endorsed by Paul Ryan has come under criticism for suggesting that “some girls rape easy.” While discussing a case in which “a 17-year-old high school senior was charged with sexual assault for having sex with an underage girl in the school’s band room,” State Rep. Roger Rivard (R) told the Chetek Alert newspaper in December that his father taught him that some girls will portray a sexual encounter as rape if they become pregnant. He is now claiming that those remarks were taken out of context and has issued a statement condemning sexual violence...

This is the second candidate this year with ties to Ryan who doesn't seem to understand basic principles involving rape, consent, and female biology. I wonder how many of these statements have to come out before Republicans admit to themselves that they have a problem.
