Former Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) was forced to resign after the House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into her private life. She was allegedly having an extra-marital affair with her Legislative Director, Graham Kelly, and a throuple relationship with a female campaign staffer.

Hill repeatedly said she was going through a divorce from her abusive husband but text messages show Hill, her husband, Kenny Heslep, and the female staffer had an ongoing relationship. The husband admitted in text messages to the campaign staffer that he and Hill abused her.

The former representative had a meltdown after learning that the Republican Party was successful in flipping her seat red with congressman-elect Mike Garcia. 

Warning: Strong language. 

According to Hill, the only reason the seat was flipped was because her husband released what she called "revenge porn."

Katie Hill needs to give it a rest. She was elected to serve the people of California's 25th Congressional District. She broke House rules by engaging in a relationship with one of her staffers. She broke the rules. No one else did. She did. She's mad that she was held accountable for her actions. 

The fact of the matter is this: if a man did what Hill did, Democrats would be up in arms. They would say the man is a sexist who is taking advantage of women. Because Hill is a woman, the Democratic Party continually gives her a pass and makes her out to be a victim.

Get. Real. She brought this on herself.
