#Me three?

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 4, 2019

Three can be a tricky number.  

Just ask disgraced former congresswoman Katie Hill. Hill played fire with the number three and got burned, but instead of taking responsibility for her actions and quietly exiting the stage, she is lashing out at her colleagues, President Trump and the right-leaning publications that covered the story.

Hill, a self-proclaimed progressive bisexual, reportedly carried on a longtime three-way relationship with her husband and a much younger female campaign staffer. That relationship ended after Hill arrived in Washington, leaving the young woman angry and hurt. More recently, Hill’s husband of 15 years filed for divorce, alleging Hill was having an affair with a male member of her congressional staff. Adding fuel to the fire, he leaked explicit text messages and photos of a naked Hill smoking a bong.

Now, Hill is playing the victim card. 

Sure, Hill admits she was engaged in an “inappropriate relationship” with her subordinate, but that’s beside the point. She is the victim of an abusive husband, revenge porn, misogyny, ethical double standards, sexual shaming and bigotry.

Maybe.

Or maybe Katie Hill is just a victim of her own narcissism. 

Regardless of what you think about bisexuality or three-way relationships, Hill is an adult who engaged in selfish and risky behavior with a subordinate. And she got caught. If Hill were a man, she would be labeled an abuser under the #metoo movement and run out of office on a rail. 

Yes, Hill’s husband is a despicable person for leaking private text messages and compromising pictures of his wife, but it was Hill who lured a young campaign staffer into a relationship with her and her husband and then dumped the woman after she got elected. Whether or not Hill violated House ethics rules is irrelevant. She engaged in an inherently unequal relationship with someone who depended on her for a paycheck.

Hill wasn’t forced out of office under a double standard. She chose to resign to avoid further scrutiny and embarrassment. She doesn’t deserve special treatment because there were three people in that relationship instead of two.
