The House Ethics Committee on Wednesday announced their intent to investigate freshman Congresswoman Katie Hill (D-CA) for having an extra-martial affair with a congressional staffer. The announcement was made after intimate photos of Hill were posted online without her consent.
The Committee is aware of public allegations that Representative Katie Hill may have engaged in a sexual relationship with an individual on her congressional staff, in violation of House Rule XXIII, clause 18(a). The Committee, pursuant to Committee Rule 18(a), has begun an investigation and will gather additional information regarding the allegations.
The Committee notes that the mere fact that it is investigating these allegations, and publicly disclosing its review, does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the Committee. No other public comment will be made on this matter except in accordance with Committee rules.
