Rep. Rouda Statement on Rep. Hill Resignation

Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Harley Rouda issued the following statement in response to Congresswoman Katie Hill’s resignation. 

Said Rouda, “It’s been an honor to serve alongside Congresswoman Katie Hill – a woman who fought for her constituents. A leader who proudly and boldly stood up for LGBTQ Americans who never thought the Halls of Congress would recognize or represent them. A human being who isn’t and will never be perfect – none of us are.

Congresswoman Hill acknowledged her errors in judgement and is resigning because she values integrity, decency, and accountability – I can’t say the same about several of our colleagues. 

The release of personal photos is a nightmare that thousands of Americans, women in particular, have endured. I know Congresswoman Hill will champion survivors and continue her fight for justice. All who have served alongside Katie should publicly rebuke this gross invasion of privacy and work to defeat this digital exploitation."
