On May 1, 2020 the New Hampshire state Rep. Richard Komi (D) tweeted the following:
The purpose of Komi’s tweet was to dismiss Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden. From the social media trending, It looks like a lot of people/media are misinterpreting what Komi actually meant. They think that this was just an ignorant chauvinist comment. But it isn’t’, it was a well crafted and executed Biden PR move.
If you analyze the tweet, what Komi is insinuating is that due to the female anatomy, Biden couldn’t perform this act by force, unless, that is, Reade allowed him to do it. So, in essence, Biden is not denying that this took place, but is arguing through Komi that it wasn’t an assault but a consensual act.
As for why would the Biden chose Komi, an unknown state representative from New Hampshire as the messenger? The Biden team likely believed that because Komi is a black Nigerian refugee, he belonged to a protected class and thus was untouchable. Any attempt to attack his statement or his credibility would be interpreted as racist and xenophobic. At the worst case scenario, he could also invoke the ‘cultural’ ignorance argument.
This whole Komi affair is a staged misdirection. It looks like Komi’s role in this act was to absorb some of the kinetic energy from the Reade explosion and shield Biden from further damage.

Even though Komi is somewhat of a sacrificial anode, I don’t think that he was originally planning to fall on his sword for Biden, but only time will tell.

Mr. Apelbaum, you never fail to overdeliver in your current events, geo-political analysis sir!
I must admit that I really had no particular view about the allegation living in Australia. However, with this Komi claim I now suspect that there rather might have been truth in the claim by this woman. Having myself once been falsely accuse I responded publishing a book with relevant details, and the police after the book was published then dropped any investigation against me. As such, I am well aware false claims can be made. However, when someone like Komi start making such absurd counter claim then this to me rather appears to show the allegations made by the woman are not denied, but claiming to be that she somehow allowed it. As such it did happen just the context of how it happened might be in dispute.
Yes, I agree, Komi’s act was one of falling on his sward for Joe Biden.
The likely Biden campaign assumption was that Komi could make this allegation and get away with it because he belongs to a protected classes. The suggestion that this was a consensual act would ‘rehabilitate’ Biden from the sexual assault charge. Nothing is new under the sun, this strategy was almost identical to the one used in the Kennedy rape defense.
