The now former Democratic Congresswoman for the 25th district of California, just north of Los Angeles, accused her actions of her & # 39; abusing husband & # 39; and claimed that the & # 39; right-hand media & # 39; helped him provide the stage to make his abuse of her possible.

& # 39; This coordinated campaign carried out by right-wing media and republican opponents, which make it possible and perpetuate my husband's abuse by offering him a platform, is disgusting and unforgivable, & # 39; she said in the video.

& # 39; I will not allow my experience to scare other young women or girls away from running to the office. For the sake of all of us, we can't let that happen, & Hill seemed to be saying it through choked tears.

& # 39; I am injured. I am mad. The path that I saw so clearly for myself is no longer there, & she continued in a video that was posted online Monday afternoon. & # 39; I never claimed to be perfect, but I never thought my imperfections would be armed and used to try to destroy me and the community I have loved all my life. I regret it so much. & # 39;

She announced her resignation on Twitter because of the fear of & # 39; what could happen & # 39; after revealing her inappropriate relationship with a junior employee and DailyMail.com, she published exclusive nude photos of her last week.

& # 39; It is with a broken heart that I am announcing my resignation from Congress today & # 39 ;, she wrote.

& # 39; This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do, but I believe it's the best for my voters, my community, and our country. & # 39;

She added a long statement to her tweet, stating: & # 39; This is what needs to happen so that the good people who supported me will no longer be subjected to the pain inflicted by my abusive husband and the brutality of hateful political agents who seem fortunate to offer a platform to a monster who is conducting a smear campaign about cyber exploitation. & # 39;

She repeated parts of her statement in the Monday video that went on about her resignation.

Hill said in her video Monday that she would focus her efforts outside of Congress on combating revenge porn, which she claims to be following DailyMail.com exclusive congress woman's revealing images

The married congresswoman also said that she would focus her efforts on something new: fighting revenge porn.

& # 39; I'm also entering a new fight, & # 39; she promised. & # 39; I will fight to ensure that no one else is experiencing what I have just experienced. Some people call this electronic attack, digital exploitation, others call it revenge porn. As a victim of it, I call it one of the worst things we can do to our sisters and our daughters. & # 39;

Hill is being investigated by the House Ethics Committee for allegedly having an affair with her campaign finance director Graham Kelly, whom she has strongly denied.

She was also involved in a throuple affair with her husband Kenny Heslep and 24-year-old female campaigner Morgan Desjardins, who just broke out last month.

News about Hill & # 39; s relationship with Desjardins, from Santa Clarita, California, and shocking photos, including one of her nude posing while smoking a hookah, were revealed by DailyMail.com.

Another photo lets her naked Desjardins hair brush.

"Congressman Katie Hill came to Congress with a strong commitment to her community and a clear vision for the future, and has made a major contribution as leader of the Freshman Class", said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a statement on Sunday.

& # 39; She has acknowledged errors of judgment that made her continued service as a member unsustainable. We must ensure a climate of integrity and dignity in the congress and in all workplaces, she continued.

Her resignation follows news earlier Sunday that she gave Kelly a hefty $ 5,000 bonus, which was also the highest award given to her campaign staff.

Kelly, 31, received a $ 5,100 bonus on April 27 as a & # 39; 2018 election bonus & # 39; while he was the legislative director in the Kelly DC office, according to reports from the Federal Election Commission.

Kelly was one of only four campaign workers who received bonuses, but received the highest. The other received bonuses from $ 2,700, according to the New York Post.

Kelly has raised more than $ 8 million for Hill & # 39; s 2018 campaigns. He was first adopted in May 2017 and started working on the general election campaign.

Hill has denied having an affair with Kelly. Hill & # 39; s estranged husband Kenny Heslep claimed that they were romantically involved in a social media post that was shared last summer when he filed for divorce in LA Superior Court.

In Heslep & # 39; s description of Hill & # 39; s affair with Graham, he said that at least last year she & # 39; had slept with her (male) finance director & # 39 ;.

Hill was embroiled in scandals last week when her business was revealed. She gave in to the throuple affair with Morgan Desjardins on Wednesday, calling it & # 39; inappropriate & # 39; and apologized to her voters.

In that apology, she said she became involved with the female employee & # 39; during the last tumultuous years of my marriage of abuse & # 39 ;.

& # 39; I know that even a consensual relationship with a subordinate is inappropriate, but I still let it happen despite my better judgment. I apologize for that. & # 39;

Hill has paid Desjardins more than $ 14,000 as a campaign consultant since April. That amount came on top of the more than $ 50,000 Desjardins earned after she started working for Hill in 2017, according to federal records.

Desjardins started a relationship with Hill and Hill & # 39; s husband Kenny Heslep shortly after she started working for Hill in 2017, before the three-sided affair broke out this summer when Hill told both her husband and her lover that she wanted to focus on her work .

Hill said her alienated husband blasphemed her by coming forward with the affair allegations that said: & # 39; The fact is that I am going through a divorce from a violent husband who seems determined to try to humiliate me. & # 39 ;
