Purdue Staffer Who Made Rape Comments Resigns

Jamie Newman, the Purdue University staff member facing pressure for online comments about raping a pro-lifer’s female relatives, has resigned.

“Yeah, I just quit. Tell the world,” Newman said in an email to the Lafayette Journal & Courier. Purdue spokeswoman Julie Rosa confirmed the school accepted his resignation, calling it “the appropriate outcome.”

Live Action News reported over the weekend that Newman told a pro-lifer on this website that, “I did in fact offer to rape Tom’s wife/daughter/great grandmother. Free of charge, even. I’m generous that way” over the course of an online argument over abortions in rape cases. The confrontation follows Facebook comments in which he called Purdue Students for Life “vile, racist idiots,” for campus flyers about abortion’s disproportionate impact on black babies, and encouraged others to do the same.
