Democrat Katie Hill Is Resigning Amid Allegations Of Sexual Relationships With Staffers

Democrat Rep. Katie Hill (CA) is reportedly resigning from Congress this week after allegations surfaced that she had engaged in relationships with a campaign staffer and a congressional staffer.

Politico reported on Sunday that Hill is “set to resign by the end of the week,” according to “two Democratic sources.”

The development comes after the House Ethics Committee announced on Wednesday that it was launching an investigation into Hill:

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.

RedState, which first broke the scandalous stories on Hill, reported on Sunday: “A major progressive PAC, Hold the House, has canceled a fundraiser in Silicon Valley scheduled for November 8 at which Rep. Katie Hill was scheduled as the featured speaker.”

“The cancellation comes after DCCC insiders told RedState Sunday that the group is quietly seeking a replacement for Hill,” RedState reported. “Within the district, the consensus is that the replacement candidate will be Asm. Christy Smith, who just completed her first term representing the area and campaigned with Hill.”
