Rising Democrat Star Denies Unethical Relationship
CA Rep. Katie Hill Allegedly Involved Female Staffer in 2-Yr “Throuple” Relationship— RedState (@RedState) October 18, 2019
Photographs and text messages obtained by RedState show that Rep. Hill was involved in a long-term sexual relationship with a female campaign staffer. The woman, whose name is not being released, was hired by Hill in late 2017 and quickly became involved in a "throuple" relationship with Hill and her estranged husband, Kenny Heslep.
According to a source close to the staffer, the throuple agreed to continue their committed relationship when Hill moved to Washington, D.C. on January 2019, but that Heslep and the staffer quickly noticed a difference in Hill's demeanor. By late May, Hill broke off her relationships with both Heslep and the staffer, claiming she wanted to focus on "this important work" and that it wasn't fair to be involved in a relationship. The staffer, as these text messages show, was distraught and trying to figure out how to move on with her life.
According to a string of text messages, after Hill left the throuple, her estranged husband learned from multiple sources that Hill had been involved sexually with her Legislative Director Graham Kelly.
It’s taken Hill a few days to get her bearings, and this is apparently what she’s going with:

In statement, Hill says she's going through divorce from "abusive husband" who is "determined to try to humiliate me."
Hill also acknowledges nude photo of her that was published on a conservative website w/o her consent:— Heather Caygle (@heatherscope) October 22, 2019
"I have notified Capitol Hill police who are investigating the situation and potential legal violations of those who posted and distributed the photos."
"This coordinated effort to try to destroy me and people close to me is despicable and will not succeed,” Hill continued.— Heather Caygle (@heatherscope) October 22, 2019
“I, like many women who have faced attacks like this before, am stronger than those who want me to be afraid."
Ummm....there are photos— TJ (@TJ27209483) October 22, 2019

Hill was sleeping with someone she employs in her official office and is trying to turn her ethics violation into her being attacked https://t.co/dK20L1yOEo— Comfortably Smug (@ComfortablySmug) October 22, 2019

Katie Hill denies extramarital relationship with her male congressional staffer, but apparently doesn't deny extramarital relationship with her female campaign staffer https://t.co/wg5Lq6YoQz— Peter J. Hasson (@peterjhasson) October 22, 2019
I wonder how a married politician's affair with a young staffer would be covered if the politician were, say, Dan Crenshaw— Peter J. Hasson (@peterjhasson) October 22, 2019
Look at Politico's dishonest and hackish lede pretending she denies the whole allegation...while the body confirms that she slept with the campaign staffer.— Andrew Follett (@AndrewCFollett) October 22, 2019
