US lawmaker quits Congress after nude photos surfaced online

A Democrat Congresswoman Katie Hill has resigned after photos of her posing naked with her female aide surfaced online.

Hill is holding her estranged husband and ‘dirty politics’ responsible for the leaked photos.

The lawmaker representing California’s 25th congressional district, covering parts of Northern Los Angeles, issued a statement on Sunday, saying she was stepping down from her elected post in the House of Representatives after she won the seat in last year’s election.

She alleged in the statement, that her estranged husband, Kenny Heslep, whom she’s in the middle of divorcing, is responsible for the leaked photos.

Parts of Hill’s emotion laden statement reads: “This is what needs to happen so that the good people who supported me will no longer be subjected to the pain inflicted by my abusive husband and the brutality of hateful political operatives who seem happily provide a platform to a monster who is driving a smear campaign built around cyber exploitation.”

 “Having private photos of personal moments weaponized against me has been an appalling invasion of my privacy. It’s also illegal, and we are currently pursuing all of our available legal options,” she stated.

Hill further said that she’s stepping down to avoid further pain and embarrassment being thrust onto her and others.

She apologized for her mistakes and adding, “Thank you for allowing me to turn my focus on this particular battle right now, and know that I stand with you as we continue to fight for the many important issues that brought me to Congress in the first place.”

She closed the statement, with the words: “I love this country, I love all of you, and I thank you for allowing me the great honor of serving you.”
