Many are calling for her resignation citing that her behavior violated House ethics rules and maybe even campaign finance law.
Hill admitted to having an “inappropriate” relationship with a female campaign staffer, but again denied having an affair with a male congressional aide. The House Ethics Committee is investigating Hill’s alleged affair with the congressional aide, which would violate House ethics rules.
“During the final tumultuous years of my abusive marriage, I became involved in a relationship with someone from my campaign,” Hill wrote in an email to supporters Wednesday. “I know that even a consensual relationship with a subordinate is inappropriate, but I still allowed it to happen despite my better judgement.”
“I am saddened that the deeply personal matter of my divorce has been brought into public view, even the false allegations of a relationship with my congressional staffer, which I have publicly denied, and I am fully and proactively cooperating with the Ethics Committee,” the congresswoman added later in her statement.
RedState 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. Capitol Hill police are investigating the photos’ publication at Hill’s request.
