Opinion | Mark Sidney | Do you remember a week or two ago when the first ‘openly gay’ female Congressperson had nude images of herself, in what appeared to be a ‘threesome,’ leak?
At the time were not nearly as concerned with the behavior that the Congresswoman was involved in, but rather her judgement. What kind of person thinks that it is ok to be photographed in the nude, and apparently while smoking marijuana via a water bong?
This is how members of our government become compromised. Luckily she was removed (self imposed removal) before teven more damage could be done. However, imagine if China got their hands on these images and used them to leverage Ms. Hill, our entire government could be at risk.
So here are the facts as we understand them:
California Democrat, Katie Hill, has officially announced her resignation from her role as US Representative, following media reports of her relationship with a female staffer, nude photos of her with another woman, and of her smoking from a bong, what appears to be marijuana went public. Hill is currently in the middle of a House Ethics Committee probe.
The disgraced Democrat tweeted on Sunday, “It is with a broken heart that today I announce my resignation from Congress. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I believe it is the best thing for my constituents, my community, and our country.”
According to Fox News, “The congresswoman last week had fought back against reports of an affair with the congressional staffer, as well as reports she was in a so-called ‘throuple’ relationship with husband Kenny Heslep and a campaign staffer.”
It is with a broken heart that today I announce my resignation from Congress. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I believe it is the best thing for my constituents, my community, and our country.

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California released a statement in which she said, “Congresswoman Katie Hill came to Congress with a powerful commitment to her community and a bright vision for the future, and has made a great contribution as a leader of the Freshman class.”
“She has acknowledged errors in judgment that made her continued service as a member untenable,” Pelosi continued. “We must ensure a climate of integrity and dignity in Congress, and in all workplaces.”
How about that, you know you went sideways when Pelosi is lecturing you on ethics ;), wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
More from Fox News:
This past Thursday, the political fallout for Hill escalated as more compromising photos of the freshman lawmaker surfaced. The Daily Mail published one photo of what appeared to be Hill undressed and holding a bong, and another of her kissing the campaign staffer.
The photos emerged shortly after the conservative website RedState.org posted screenshots of several text messages between Hill and the staffer detailing the reported end of their three-person relationship earlier this year and reported on intimate pictures including a nude photo of Hill brushing the staffer’s hair.
According to the texts that were shown, Hill wanted to focus on her work and suggested that “political risk” was a factor.
Fox News has not verified the authenticity of the photos.
In her resignation letter Hill wrote, “This is what needs to happen so that the good people who supported me will no longer be subjected to the pain inflicted by my abusive husband and the brutality of hateful political operatives who seem to happily provide a platform to a monster who is driving a smear campaign built around cyber exploitation.”
She went on to say, “Having private photos of personal moments weaponized against me has been an appalling invasion of my privacy. It’s also illegal, and we are currently pursuing all of our available legal options.”
LIsten lady, we entrust you with our NATIONAL SECRETS, I’m sorry but you can not have that privilege and go running around all over town letting people take nudes of you while you do drugs. Stop trying to spin this and take some GD personal responsibility for once in your life woman.
The disgraced Representative has still failed to take responsibility for her insanely selfish actions, which also could have, if they did not in fact, compromised our national security.
The leadership of the left has seemingly turned into as bunch of children, who want to shift the blame to everyone but themselves. Hill had hoped to vote for Trump’s impeachment I would guess … however, it does not look like she will get the chance.
