Rep. Katie Hill Farewell Speech: "I'm Leaving Because Of A Misogynistic Culture That Gleefully Consumed My Naked Pictures"

|

Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) delivers her last floor speech before resigning from Congress amid an ethics investigation.

REP. KATIE HILL (D-CA): I wasn't ready for my time here to come to an end so soon... I am leaving now because of a double standard. I am leaving because I no longer want to be used as a bargaining chip. I'm leaving because I didn't want to be peddled by papers and blogs and websites used by shameless operatives for the dirtiest gutter politics I've ever seen, and the right-wing media to drive clicks and expand their audience by distributing intimate photographs of me taken without my knowledge — let alone my consent — for the sexual entertainment of millions...

I'm leaving because of a misogynistic culture that gleefully consumed my naked pictures, capitalized on my sexuality and enabled my abusive ex to continue that abuse, this time with the entire country watching.
