Former California congresswoman Katie Hill admitted in a new profile that she initially planned to lie about the “throuple” relationship with a campaign staffer that came to light in October.
“You know, honestly, it was one of those things where it was like, Well, I’ll just deny it, [emphasis in original]” The disgraced former Congresswoman Katie Hill told New York magazine writer Caitlin Moscatello. “Morgan [the staffer] is not accusing me of anything. She doesn’t want it to come out any more than I do.”
“Plenty of politicians lie, but it’s rare for one to tell a reporter it was her game plan,” Moscatello wrote.
Hill announced her resignation on Oct. 27, nine days after RedState first reported photos and text messages showing her and ex-husband Kenny Heslep in an intimate relationship with a female campaign staffer.
Just a personal side note: Remember how RedState a legitimate Conservative political news website, was portrayed by CNN, MSNBC and the media in general as some right-wing, white-nationalist conspiracy website LOL.
But I digress
Hill admitted in a letter to constituents before resigning that she did have a relationship with the staffer, Morgan, whom she told New York she “fell in love” with. She also said she didn’t see the relationship as a #MeToo violation, even though Morgan was her body woman on the campaign trail.
Hill continued the three-person relationship when she took office before breaking things off with both Morgan and Heslep in May.
Upon her resignation, Hill blamed Heslep for leaking the photos to the media, portraying herself as a victim of revenge porn. She decried the “double standard” for female politicians and the “dirtiest gutter politics I’ve ever seen.”
Hill, who is bisexual, denied having a separate affair with her male legislative director, Graham Kelly. The alleged affair became the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation.
Since her scandal broke, Hill has been interviewed on Good Morning America (watch it below), MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, and CNN’s (un) Reliable Sources. She has also published an op-ed in the New York Times, and is writing a memoir.
According to New York magazine, she has been dating Playboy writer Alex Thomas since last summer.
Here’s the recent GMA interview where Katie Hill spews the classic liberal excuses to whenever a Democrat is caught being their hypocritical selves.
Place the blame on the male patriarchy and the bigotry, racist, bi-phobic America that doesn’t exist.
Katie Hill, rather than admit what he/she/it did was wrong! Blame the whole thing on Republicans for their hyperbole this minor event into a grand conspiracy which somehow confused Americans from seeing the truth of her innocence.
Of course, this is all followed by the liberal biased media lecturing us about what a brave, bold woman she is, and the horrors she had to endure.
Watch the liberal spin…Vomit bags may be needed.
