Katie Hill Pins Downfall on Sexism in Resignation Speech
Freshman Democrat Katie Hill struck a defiant tone in her resignation speech from the House of Representatives on Thursday, blaming her resignation on ‘sexism’ after being caught carrying out a ‘throuple’ relationship with a subordinate employee.
Hill claims she used her position as a member of Congress to defend women, despite carrying out affairs with male and female staffers as a sitting Congresswoman. Sexual relationships with subordinate employees are considered to be unethical, especially for members of Congress, as staffers can’t necessarily turn down their overseers without risking their career or professional status.
Hill was elected in 2018, defeating a longtime Republican member of Congress. She slammed both President Trump and “right-wing” media for subjecting her to accountability for her actions.
“I’m leaving because I didn’t want to be peddled by papers and blogs and websites used by shameless operatives for the dirtiest gutter politics I’ve ever seen, and the right wing media, to drive clicks and expand their audience by distributing intimate photos of me taken without my knowledge or consent for the sexual entertainment of millions.”
The Freshman Democrat went on to blame a “misogynistic culture” and her abusive ex for the proliferation of her naked photos across the internet.
Members of Congress are no mere private individuals entitled to a shutdown of scrutiny for their personal conduct. Had Hill not been outed by her former staffer for their highly inappropriate “throuple” relationship, her personal photos could’ve been seen as just that- private photos with no relevance to the general public.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has claimed that Hill is the victim of her situation, targeted because she’s a woman with accusations a male member of Congress wouldn’t face. Yet several Congressmen have been forced to resign for inappropriate sexual acts with female staffers, such as former Arizona Congressman Trent Franks.
It’ll be impossible for many objective Americans to ever take the progressive feminists who have defended Hill seriously, after it’s been made clear their standards for personal conduct are little more than malleable tools to advance their political program.
