She finally said it. Rep. Katie Hill admitted to having an “inappropriate” relationship with a female staffer, but she honestly had no other choice, because pictures don’t lie. One story covering the latest news of Hill’s alleged sexual triangle and licentious behavior reported on her admission of at least one extramarital affair.
We aren’t being judgemental when we say at least one either, as there are rumors of multiple affairs that have been swirling around the Democratic California Rep. This one though, well there was evidence by way of pictures, like the kind Hill took while on a vacation her young female staffer.
We could start with the fact that these were explicit photos, and these pictures didn’t need to tell a thousand words. (For the sake of decency it is a good thing they don’t). What they did tell in only a mere glance was that there was an obvious intimate relationship between Rep. Hill and her staffer. What was she admitting to exactly? The pictures were out and the story had already been circulated. Perhaps this should have been less about her admitting anything and more about her apologizing?
We also haven’t discussed the fact that this young female staffer was a recent college graduate, that she was only 22 years old. Yes, she was legally an adult but if we need to explain any further then you wouldn’t understand anyway. Remember too, this was only one of the extramarital affairs she has allegedly had.
Of course, we don’t have photos of any activities regarding those rumored interludes but she didn’t admit to this relationship either. Not until she had no other options. Our aforementioned story reported as you would expect, that she “… denied having an affair with a male congressional aide.”
To be honest here though, she also knows as the story reminded us that “the House Ethics Committee is investigating Hill’s alleged affair with the congressional aide, which would violate House ethics rules.” So she can’t admit to having that affair because it would remove her from office. Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one who thinks that the moral and ethical behavior alone warrants her resignation.
Rep. Hill’s Republican 2020 challenger, Angela Underwood Jacobs, has also voiced the opinion that she should step down gracefully. Our story quoted Jacobs who said, “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… Ms. Hill’s behavior exhibits extremely poor judgment… and it could have put our nation at risk due to her heightened potential to be blackmailed… .”
Hopefully, Rep. Hill will do the right thing, but some of her actions suggest otherwise. As our story also shared, “Capitol Hill police are investigating the photos’ publication at Hill’s request.” Isn’t that a curious request for someone who has admitted being guilty of what the photos proved?
Maybe it is because she believes she was hacked or that her personal information and files were compromised or violated somehow? Or it could be, that she wants to know who found out and who blew the whistle – because she is angry and hurt? If you are going to be leaving the stage, you might as well take some shots and abuse your power while you still have it, right?
We don’t know why she wants this investigated or what her motives are, what we do know is that she had at least one affair. We know that it was inappropriate on several levels and we know there is much talk about other extramarital relationships.
Yes, this should have been more of an apology than an admission of facts we already knew, that we have all seen (at least those of age because they are rated R). Did you just now realize how close her young staffer was to almost being too young to be in pics of this nature? And maybe that apology should have been followed by a resignation.
For everyone’s sake, if a resignation does come we all hope that it happens before any more pictures are revealed!
