California Rep. Katie Hill is resigning over an embarrassing sex scandal. Damning allegations of affairs with staffers emerged last week against Rep. Hill, along with a host of lurid photos. [Rep.

Before her tawdry downfall, the 32-year-old Hill was a liberal darling hailed as one of the Democrats’ star young lawmakers. Unlike Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the Squad, she was relatively moderate on immigration. She at least believed we should have a “strong border” while the progressive left believes we shouldn’t have a wall at all. But, like all Democrats, she supported a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal immigrants and opposed the White House’s request for more border funding. [LA-area Rep.

Patriots shouldn’t mourn Hill’s departure. She’s just another progressive who abused her power and wants to sell out America.
It should be noted that another Democrat loved by the media may suffer the same downfall. Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is also going through a divorce and there’s a good chance serious dirt may emerge. Hill’s affairs were revealed through her divorce proceedings.

Omar is already credibly accused of engaging in an affair with a political consultant hired by her campaign. The Somali congresswoman has repeatedly denied the affair in spite of the evidence saying otherwise.
