Rep. Katie Hill Resigns in Disgrace Following Inappropriate Lesbian Relationship with Staffer
Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) announced her resignation from Congress today in a social media post, just days after she denied any wrongdoing after embarrassing nude pictures of the freshman Congresswoman were released to the public.
“It is with a broken heart that today I announce my resignation from Congress,” Hill said in a statement. “This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I believe it is the best thing for my constituents, my community, and our country.”
In her official statement, she continues to heap the blame on an “abusive husband” for the fall out that has occurred because of her inappropriate lesbian sex affair with a former staffer.

“The fact is I am going through a divorce from an abusive husband who seems determined to try to humiliate me,” Hill said to Politico shortly after lurid, sexually-suggestive photographs of Hill stroking her lesbian lover’s hair in the nude were released to the public.
“I am disgusted that my opponents would seek to exploit such a private matter for political gain. This coordinated effort to try to destroy me and people close to me is despicable and will not succeed,” she added. “I, like many women who have faced attacks like this before, am stronger than those who want me to be afraid.”
This empowered LGBT woman’s phony facade of strength lasted less than a week. Further naked photos produced of Hill hitting a giant bong with a crotch tattoo of a Nazi-era iron cross may have been the final straw that forced her resignation.

Big League Politics reported on Hill’s naughty behavior and the ensuing fall-out that was taking place in Congress last week:
The House Ethics Committee has launched a formal investigation into Rep. Hill’s behavior, as more damning and embarrassing details emerge about her sexual exploits.
“The Committee is aware of public allegations that Representative Katie Hill may have engaged in a sexual relationship with an individual on her congressional staff, in violation of House Rule XXIII, clause 18(a). The Committee, pursuant to Committee Rule 18(a), has begun an investigation and will gather additional information regarding the allegations,” committee chair Ted Deutch (D-FL) and ranking member Kenny Marchant (R-TX) said in a joint statement.
“The Committee notes that the mere fact that it is investigating these allegations, and publicly disclosing its review, does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the Committee,” they added.
Although Hill has denied having an affair with her legislative director Graham Kelly, she was forced to admit to having inappropriate relations with [the younger female staffer]. She once again blamed her husband for her own destructive actions, as she remains desperate to skirt culpability for her degenerate actions.
“During the final tumultuous years of my abusive marriage, I became involved in a relationship with someone from my campaign,” Hill wrote to her supporters Wednesday. “I know that even a consensual relationship with a subordinate is inappropriate, but I still allowed it to happen despite my better judgement.”
Hill made history as the first openly bisexual woman ever elected into the U.S. House last year. Now, she’s made history yet again as the first bisexual legislator ever to resign in disgrace over a sex scandal!
