Democratic Congresswoman Forced to Resign Over ‘Revenge Porn’

While the Democratic House continues with its one-sided impeachment inquiry against President Donald J. Trump, that is not the only scandal rocking Washington, DC.

Democratic Congresswoman, Rep. Katie Hill, has been forced to resign, after having to account for nude pictures being spread over social media and admitting to having inappropriate sexual relations with a staffer.

During her resignation speech, delivered on the floor of the House, Hill said her explosive sex scandal put her in one of the “darkest places that a mind can go,” and she blamed a “misogynistic culture” for her resignation.

The California congresswoman said she was stepping down due to a “misogynistic culture that gleefully consumed my naked pictures, capitalized on my sexuality and enabled my abusive ex to continue that abuse.” Hill had become a victim of what has come to be known as “revenge porn,” which is when an ex purposely distributes private pictures or videos of an explicit nature, without the knowledge, or consent of the person being depicted.

“I’m leaving, but we have men who have been credibly accused of intentional acts of sexual violence and remain in boardrooms, on the Supreme Court, in this very body, and worst of all, in the Oval Office,” Hill said.

Hill gave her resignation amid an ethics investigation into an alleged relationship with a male congressional aide, Graham Kelly. She has denied having an affair with him, but fessed up to carrying on a long-term “throuple” with a younger female staffer and her estranged husband.

“I wanted to show young people, queer people, working people, imperfect people that they belong here because this is the people’s house,” she said. “I fell short of that and I’m sorry. To every young person who saw themselves and their dreams reflected in me, I’m sorry,” Hill said as she concluded her resignation speech.

As far as future plans, Hill said she wants to work with her soon-to-be former colleagues on a bill to combat revenge porn. “The overwhelming message from my colleagues was that there’s a lot more that needs to be done and that they are with me and that they expect to see me again in some way, shape or form,” she said. “So I felt tremendously supported. And I expect to be back somehow.”
