Democratic California Rep. Katie Hill is being investigated by House Committee on Ethics for allegations that she had an extramarital affair with one of her congressional aides, committee leadership announced.
Fox News reports that the same report also said she was in a so-called “throuple” with her estranged husband and a female campaign staffer. However, it was the reported affair with her congressional staffer, Graham Kelly, that sparked the investigation, according to the panel.
“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),” Committee Chairman Ted Deutch, D-Fla., and Ranking Member Kenny Marchant, R-Texas, wrote. They added that the panel had launched “an investigation and will gather additional information regarding the allegations.”
The statement did not indicate the committee had empaneled an “investigative subcommittee,” the equivalent of a congressional indictment.
Last week, RedState reported that Hill, who is openly bisexual, had developed a “long-term sexual relationship” with the unnamed staffer from her congressional campaign, who ultimately entered into the “throuple” with Hill’s husband, Kenny Heslep — who later filed for divorce. The three of them, according to RedState’s confidential sources, had taken multiple vacations together.
The conservative blog obtained screenshots of several text messages between Hill and the staffer detailing the reported end of their three-person relationship earlier this year as well as intimate pictures including a nude photo of Hill. According to the alleged texts, Hill wanted to focus on her work and suggested that “political risk” was a factor.
“The fact is I am going through a divorce from an abusive husband who seems determined to try to humiliate me,” Hill told Politico. The reports indicate that her husband was sexually involved with Hill and her lesbian lover, as they had a degenerate polyamorous arrangement.
“I am disgusted that my opponents would seek to exploit such a private matter for political gain. This coordinated effort to try to destroy me and people close to me is despicable and will not succeed,” Hill said. “I, like many women who have faced attacks like this before, am stronger than those who want me to be afraid.”
“Intimate photos of me and another individual were published by Republican operatives on the Internet without my consent,” Hill said in a statement to Fox News. “I have notified Capitol Hill police, who are investigating the situation and potential legal violations of those who posted and distributed the photos, and therefore will have no further comment on the digital materials.”
“This smear campaign will not get in the way of the work I am doing every day to move our district and our country forward. I am truly grateful for the outpouring of support I have received from colleagues and constituents alike, and I know we will get through this together.”
Hill’s Republican challenger in the 2020 election, Angela Underwood Jacobs, has already called on Hill to resign over the alleged affairs.
