A major Democrat just resigned after getting caught doing something despicable
With President Trump in office, the Democrat Party is falling apart.
They continue to get worse and worse news.
And a major Democrat just resigned after doing something despicable.
In recent weeks, Rep. Katie Hill has been hit with a series of sexual misconduct allegations.
The freshman Rep. has admitted to one of them, but denies at least two other allegations against her.
The one she admitted involved a sexual relationship with a campaign staffer that she kept up when she got to Congress — against strict congressional rules.
And she just resigned from Congress in response to it, in a move that shocked the Democrat Party.
Breitbart News reports:
Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) will resign from Congress after reports suggested that she had inappropriate relationships with staffers in her congressional office and campaign, according to a report on Sunday.
Politico reported Sunday that Rep. Hill, an openly bisexual member of Congress, will resign from Congress by the end of the week, according to two Democrat sources.
The House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into Hill’s reportedly improper sexual relationship with a male congressional staffer, a claim she has denied.
The House adopted new ethics rules this year banning romantic relationships between lawmakers and their staffers, in response to the #metoo movement.
Hill, however, admitted and then apologized for an “inappropriate” relationship with a female campaign staffer on Wednesday.
In a letter to her constituents Wednesday, Hill said that she hopes that people will respect the staffer’s privacy, saying:
‘I know that even a consensual relationship with a subordinate is inappropriate, but I still allowed it to happen despite my better judgment. For that I apologize. I wish nothing but the best for her and hope everyone respects her privacy in this difficult time.’
Hill’s District is one of the few in California that is competitive for Republicans.
A Republican held the seat prior to Hill, which means that a Republican could likely win in the upcoming election.
This is bad news for Nancy Pelosi, who is working overtime to hold onto her Democrat majority in the House.
