Glass ceilings are getting smashed left and right in the Democratic Party!
From The Washington Examiner:
Rep. Katie Hill is the first female member of Congress to resign from office over a sex scandal, a move that several male lawmakers have made throughout U.S. history.
The California Democrat announced her resignation on Sunday amid a House Ethics Committee investigation into her alleged affair with her legislative director, and after news broke that she had also engaged in a three-way relationship with her husband and a campaign staffer.
Hill, 32, denied last week that she ever had an inappropriate relationship with her legislative director Graham Kelly and blamed her “abusive husband” Kenny Heslep for launching a “smear campaign” against her with the rumor. She has, however, admitted to the relationship with the campaign staffer after naked photographs from their relationship were published.
The House Ethics Committee announced on Oct. 23 an investigation into allegations of an affair with Kelly, which is prohibited by House rules, making her the first woman in Congress to face a House Ethics Committee inquiry into a sexual relationship. However, the freshman Democrat will exit her first term before the investigation culminates.
So many firsts!
It is with a broken heart that today I announce my resignation from Congress. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I believe it is the best thing for my constituents, my community, and our country.

It appears Hill got burned by her husband after cheating on him with some random staffers outside of the boundaries of their “open relationship.”
