Congresswoman Katie Hill thinks about another run for Congress after ex-husband released her nude photos, prompting her to resign

Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) who was the victim of “revenge porn,” where former partners weaponize photos or videos of their exes to get revenge after a breakup. This is what happened in Hill’s case when her former husband released nude photos of her after she was elected to Congress. Hill resigned despite her supporters who believed she was the victim of an attack and wasn’t in the wrong.

During an interview with Axios, Hill said she’s watched Republican members of Congress have scandals and not step down the way that she had.

“Having seen other people who’ve had scandals since I left, (Andrew) Cuomo and, you know, of course, Matt Gaetz … you see that and, of course, they don’t resign,” she explained. “You really wonder how much of it was the pressure I put on myself because I was a woman, and because I’d been an advocate for the #MeToo movement, and how much of it was sexism and … the public shaming aspect of it, the revenge-porn aspect of it.”
