Katie Hill Challenger Calls For Her Resignation Over Staffer Affair Allegations

Peter Hasson on October 22, 2019

Democratic California Rep. Katie Hill’s 2020 opponent is calling for the congresswoman’s resignation over allegations that she had extramarital affairs with both a male congressional staffer and a female campaign staffer.

“While I believe that elected officials should be afforded a reasonable level of privacy, Ms. Hill’s relationships with two different members of her staff cross the line of ethical boundaries that members of Congress should be held to,” Angela Underwood Jacobs, a Republican challenging Hill in California’s 25th Congressional District, said in a statement.

“Ms. Hill’s behavior exhibits extremely poor judgement — it violates House ethics and it could have put our nation at risk due to her heightened potential to be blackmailed,” Underwood Jacobs said, adding that she thinks Hill should resign.

Hill on Tuesday denied having an affair with Graham Kelly, her legislative director, but didn’t deny having an affair with the unnamed campaign staffer.

Hill, who told Politico that she doesn’t plan to resign, blamed an “abusive husband” and a “coordinated effort to try to destroy me and people close to me” for the affair allegations.

Red State first revealed Hill’s alleged relationships with the two staffers in an Oct. 18 article that included a nude photo of Hill brushing the female campaign staffer’s hair.

Hill said that Capitol Hill police are “investigating the situation and potential legal violations of those who posted and distributed the photos,” and that she “will have no further comment on the digital materials.”

  • As to the calls to resign......let he who is without sin cast the first stone. No one called for FDR to resign because of his mistresses. Marilyn Monroe did not end JFK's time in office.

  • Democrats are ignoring it, and letting it fade from view. The average lemming has probably already forgotten Omar--just like they've forgotten a certain governor and lieutenant governor of Virginia. That is the Democrat way--and we let them get away with it.

  • Very good point. The Democrats and Hill might have cooked this up just to distract us from Schiff--who has done far worse than randy Katie has.

  • She will not resign. And neither the Democratic Party or the Republican Party will do anything about it.

  • Time to resign and no it isn't a Republican's fault, your husband's fault or Trump's fault that this happened. It is your fault, Katie, and yours alone.
