Katie Hill delivers fiery farewell

Rep. Katie Hill delivered a defiant  and forceful farewell speech Thursday afternoon, declaring she was  resigning because of a “double standard” imposed on women in power and  vowing that she will not be “silenced” as she steps away from public  life.

Once a freshman rising star, Hill  announced her resignation earlier this week after allegations surfaced  of an improper sexual relationship with a staffer, a sudden downfall for  a promising young lawmaker who had been ascending quickly within House  Democratic leadership ranks. Hill’s resignation is effective Friday.
