After Initial Denials, Dem Lawmaker Katie Hill Admits Affair with Campaign Staffer

After initial denials, Democrat lawmaker Katie Hill has admitted having an affair with a campaign staffer.

As recent as Tuesday Hill was denying an improper relationship.

WATCH:

DailyCaller reported California Congresswoman Katie Hill refused to answer questions on if she plans to resign after photos leaked of an alleged affair with staffers.

Hill’s office called the police on the Daily Caller for staking out her office Tuesday. After police went inside the office, an officer approached the reporter and asked if he was a member of the press, to which he responded “yes.” The officer then went back into the office and left about five minutes later.

Now Breitbart is reporting Katie Hill has come clean and admitted to having an affair with a staffer.

Breitbart reports Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) admitted Wednesday 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 this year (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, 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.”
