Rep. Katie Hill appears before congress to make a final speech.
Rep. Katie Hill’s last day on Capitol Hill will be Friday, her office said.
Hill, who represents California’s 25th congressional district, announced that her final floor speech would be Thursday, after the vote on the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
She is a first-term Democratic congresswoman who was part of last year’s historic, women-led wave in the midterm elections that recently resigned amid an ethics probe into an alleged sexual relationship with a congressional aide, which she denied.
Hill, however, did acknowledge a relationship with a campaign staffer who is not on her congressional staff and apologized, saying the relationship happened “despite my better judgment.”
