US Congresswoman Katie Hill has resigned from the Congress following allegations of having an extra-marital affair with a Capitol aide.

The Democratic party leader from California has denied all the allegations and said that she is stepping down with a ‘broken heart’. This resignation followed after an ethics committee divulged intimate details about her personal life. It was revealed during an investigation that Hill, along with her ex-husband Kenneth Haslep were involved in a ‘throuple’ relationship and that Hill was a bisexual. Hill’s pictures, where Congresswoman is seen smoking a bong, being naked and kissing a female staff were found in the investigation. However, Hill has revealed that this is a smear campaign being carried out against her name and that it is a ploy to undermine her good work for the community.
