  1. "Democrat Katie Hill Admits Affair with Campaign Staffer, Apologizes"
    Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) admitted Wednesday 23 Oct 2019 to having had an affair with a staffer on her congressional campaign.

    Her admission seemed to contradict her denial the day before of an affair with a male member of her congressional staff, though the admission Wednesday may concern a different, female staffer who worked on her campaign but not in her Capitol Hill office.

    The House adopted new ethics rules in 2019 (by voice vote, not roll call vote) banning romantic relationships between members of Congress and their staffers, in response to the #metoo movement.

    Rep. Hill was elected in 2018 in California’s 25th congressional district as one of seven Democrats who unseated incumbent Republicans in the Golden State. She is vice chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. She also protested vigorously against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court last year, calling Kavanaugh a “serial predator” after he faced several sudden uncorroborated accusations from female classmates.

    In fact, Hill repeatedly made the fight against sexual harassment a central theme of her congressional campaign, arguing that electing more female leaders to Congress would be part of the solution to the ongoing problem.

    Hill also participated in a nationwide “Believe Survivors” walkout in solidarity with Kavanaugh’s accusers.

    Last Friday 18 Oct 2019, the RedState blog published personal and intimate photographs and text messages that suggested “Rep. Hill was involved in a long-term sexual relationship with a female campaign staffer.” Rep. Hill and her estranged husband were reportedly involved in a relationship with the female staffer, before Rep. Hill allegedly broke off her relationships with both. According to RedState, she also allegedly became involved with a male Capitol Hill staffer.

    Hill called the allegations part of a “smear campaign” and her supporters said she was a victim of “revenge porn.”

    In a message to constituents, Hill said she was the victim of a crime and had asked Capitol Police to investigate.

    Hill also agreed Wednesday 23 Oct 2019 to cooperate with an investigation by the House Ethics Committee over the allegations.

  2. As I post this, they're oddly hiding all of their channel comments. Lol. I wonder how media would treat this, if the positions were reversed? Pstt, I assume it'd be quite different. Why do they claim "it's all a right-wing smear" if the story & pictures are true?
    A fair person can acknowledge, it is highly unlikely that they'd make the same claims/statements.
    If it (again) was reversed.
    Their hypocrisy is exhausting!

  3. Yesterday she denied it. Today she admitted it. Is lying to the public ethical? Is having a love affair with an employee ethical? Sure is if you're not a republican.

  4. Yeah well she is a democrat so the allegations will quietly disappear just like always when a democrat breaks the law, bill and Hillary have had more than 27 people killed in the decades since whitewater and every time it's dismissed as conspiracy theory

  5. I saw the pictures of her naked brushing the hair of another woman that worked for her. If it was a guy me too would get him. She should be removed

  6. There is no immorality in the Democrat party. This enhances her position with her Democrat voters. She'll get re-elected in a landslide.

  7. Wow isn't Katie Hill the big hypocrite, first she is a champion of the "Me Too Movement," then she is a workplace sexual harasser.

  8. So this FEMINAZI don't want her ADULTERY pictures get exposed, exposing her INFIDELITY. That's the problem with the FILTHY WESTERN females. They DON'T WANT to be accountable for their MUNDANE ACTS. They are so COWARD that they prefer to brush it under the couch and NOT FACE THE TRUTH, like it never happened !

  9. If the office walls of Congress could only talk, don't take a black light into old Ted Kennedy or Chris Dodd's office's, you'd faint.

  10. Have you seen the photos? She is a degenerate and smokes dope. And this trash is in the Congress. Not acceptable.

  11. She/he looks like a guy trans to female… No tits…. Katie and the male staffer and her husband… Man-naja-no-twat
    Hahaha. That's hilarious!!
