Katie Hill is leaving Congress in a disgrace after leaked photos rocked Washington D.C. showing her in some compromising positions. She now claims the photos were taken without her permission but that rings hollow.
And what does ring true is that this was a well-orchestrated political hit from a furious ex-husband and for that, she has no one to blame but herself.
Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made some comment about not taking compromising pictures in today’s social media age.
You don’t take pictures like this. And in worst case, if you knew they were out there and may get out you should not run for office.
Politics is a dirty business and a ruthless one. As a polititian and a Democrat, she should know how vicious the game is played.
But smearing Brett Kavanaugh from the floor of Congress in her farewell speech was just a bridge too far. A truly classless and graceless move.
Katie Hill got busted and she is paying the price for it. But there was no need to smear Brett Kavanaugh in the process.
And yet she did. To her everlasting shame.
“I am leaving but we have men who have been credibly accused of intentional acts of sexual violence and remain in boardrooms, on the supreme court, in this very body, and worst of all in the oval office,” Hill said with bitterness and spite at her own failings dripping from every word.
