Did Rep. Katie Hill deserve to resign?

Facing a House ethics investigation for an alleged sexual relationship with a staffer, Representative Katie Hill (D-CA) said she would resign from Congress. The House investigation was prompted by the publication of intimate photos and details of her sexual relationship by conservative website RedState. Hill says the photos are revenge porn from an "abusive husband who seems determined to try to humiliate me." Conservatives are celebrating HIll's resignation, but her supporters say there's a clear double standard here.

Supporters say there's a clear double standard being held against Rep. Hill. Several Republican men—including President Donald Trump—have faced similar allegations but suffered zero consequences.

In a world where people don't bat an eye at the fact that the sitting president faces several rape accusations, it's clear that Katie Hill is being held to a different standard to the Republican men who got away with their scandals.

#ByeByeKatieHill

For conservatives, it's a clear case where a politician violated the rules, was facing an official investigation and decided to resign. It's an open and shut case.

It comes down to the fact that she made a clear ethics violation that broke House rules.
