Following the resignation of disgraced Democratic Rep. Katie Hill on Sunday night, the 32-year-old posted a video to YouTube blaming “right-wing media” for her downfall.
Hill resigned a week after Red State broke a story revealing that Hill was having an improper sexual relationship with one of her congressional staffers. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, for which Hill was a strong advocate, a new rule forbade such relationships because of the imbalance of power.
“This coordinated campaign carried out by the right wing media and Republican opponents enabling and perpetuating my husband’s abuse by providing him a platform is disgusting and unforgivable, and they will be held accountable,” Hill charged in the video posted Monday, according to The Blaze.
“I will not allow myself to be a distraction from the constitutional crisis we’re faced with, and the critical work of my colleagues,” she continued. “I cannot let this horrible smear campaign get in the way of that work.
“I will fight to ensure no one else has to live through what I just experienced,” Hill said. “Some people call this electronic assault, digital exploitation, others call it revenge porn. As the victim of it, I call it one of the worst things we can do to our sisters and our daughters.”
