Dem Rep Katie Hill to Resign Over ‘Throuple’ Controversy

There is certainly no shortage of strangle and salacious stories being generated in Washington DC as of late, but none are quite as awe-inspiring as that of Democratic Representative Katie Hill.

Hill was recently entangled in a scandal in which she was accused of an affair involving several members of her staff.  Her inability to deny such an affair led to her resignation today.

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.

The compromising photos of Hill were damning, to say the least, which some observers concerned that one of Hill’s more private tattoos could have hidden, anti-Semitic meaning.
