For her final House floor speech, Katie Hill decided to forego the whole having-integrity thing and opted instead to blame “a double standard” and “misogynistic culture” — among other factors that were not “I chose to engage in inappropriate sexual relationships with subordinates despite knowing full-well that I was violating ethics rules.”
Because there’s apparently no limit to Hill’s shamelessness, she also tweeted this:
I yield the balance of my time for now, but not forever. https://t.co/j4e0FAXxDL

Unsurprisingly, she’s still got lots of support from fans who are actually OK with the kind of double standards that benefit Hill:
More power to you!

??? I have a daughter your age, I’d hug her and comfort her AND, I would be on a mommas mission! This is so sad, Onward Katie

Let’s hope you aren’t teaching your daughter that it’s perfectly OK to abuse your position of authority and have sex with people who work for you.
If you were a man you wouldn’t be allowed to give that speech. https://t.co/jYrP7Lmoul

you were having sex with your subordinates. That is no one else's fault but yours.

Don't have sexual relationships with staffers. That's wrong whether you are male or female. Sorry, but standards are standards. I'm very disappointed, as I had high hopes for you.
