Poor timing for Paul Ryan in advance of tonight's big VP debate -- a Wisconsin state lawmaker endorsed by the GOP nominee is under fire 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.

Paul Ryan's senior poll from a yearbook at Joseph A. Craig High School in Janesville, Wisconsin shows a brown-nosing prom king who wasn't even considered the "Ryan" with the most potential -- Most Likely To Succeed went to Adam Ryan. It's okay Paul, this guy once struck out on Most Likely To Succeed and Most Athletic. Sure, it was 8th grade, but it counts.
