A purported former staffer of former Congresswoman Katie Hill rebuked her old boss on Tuesday, castigating Hill for the workplace sex scandal that led to her resignation on the day that a television network announced a movie adaption of Hill’s biography.

“Katie took advantage of her subordinates. She caused immense harm to the people who worked for her, many of whom were young women just beginning their careers in politics.”
The anonymous former staffer, who had access to Hill’s old governmental Twitter account, rebuked her former employer for unethical workplace conduct. Hill had been forced to resign for involving a subordinate in a “throuple” relationship with her then-boyfriend while married.
The staffer clarified that Hill had never been investigated by the House Ethics Committee- or anyone, for that matter- for her sexual involvement with a subordinate staffer. It’s immoral and potentially exploitative to involve any subordinate employee in a sexual relationship with yourself as a member of Congress, or as any person in a position of authority, for the matter. Men in Congress such as former Republican Congressman Trent Franks have been compelled to resign for a lot less, and they haven’t had feminist movies made about them by liberal media companies.
As usual, Hill denied an opportunity to explain her actions when addressing the tweet thread on her own personal Twitter account, instead claiming that the account had been hacked.
Thanks to all who let me know my government official twitter account was hacked. Control of my account was immediately handed back to the House Clerk when I resigned, including password changes and access restrictions. God knows who hacked it from there. Reported to @twitter.

The corporate media has largely reinvented Hill as a victim in the situation, largely ignoring her own poor and unethical conduct towards her employees as a member of Congress. It’s rich to see Hill act as a martyr or victim of sorts, claiming that she was drummed out of the House of Representatives as some sort of sexist plot.
Facebook Will Create “Oversight Board” For Users to Appeal Censorship Decisions
A smidgen of accountability.
Facebook is planning on rolling out an “oversight board” to which users of the platform can appeal the censorship of content.
“Over the next few weeks, our nearly 3 billion users will have access to an independent review of difficult content decisions,” announced the company in a Thursday blog post.
Oversight Board to Start Hearing Cases https://t.co/AAaa2nPmsF

Facebook is describing the oversight board as a “global body of experts separate from Facebook that will make independent and binding decisions on the cases they choose to hear.” Facebook users will presumably have the option to appeal incidences of censorship to Facebook’s oversight board when they have exhausted use of Facebook’s existing censorship appeal process. However, the existing process is only available on a seemingly arbitrary basis, and it’s probably not unlikely that those who already aren’t in Facebook’s good graces won’t be allowed the opportunity to appeal to the oversight board.
The overseers are employed and selected by Facebook itself, casting serious doubt as to whether they’re genuinely impartial arbiters of social media censorship.
It’s hard to tell if this is a step in the right direction or merely a ruse for the monopoly to counter accusations that its arbitrary censorship process is undemocratic and authoritarian. In predictable fashion, the powerful Oversight Board is staffed almost exclusively with Soros-linked neoliberal progressives, some of whom have already advocated for a European understanding of “free speech” as opposed to an American one.
With great power comes great responsibility, and Facebook seems content to accept the former without the latter. It simply isn’t their place to declare what is permissible political speech.
