Former Rep. Katie Hill isn’t done telling her side of story regarding the sex scandal that drove her out of office. She is reportedly writing a memoir titled “She Will Rise,” which will share more details about the circumstances that led to her resignation last year.
Hill stepped down after 10 months in office when nude photos of her were leaked, without consent, by her estranged husband. The California Democrat also faced an ethics probe over allegations she had an inappropriate relationship with a House staffer.
She has defended herself against her critics in recent interviews.
“Why did I decide to step down? I realized the impact I was having on my colleagues. I didn’t want to be a distraction during the time we were coming up on the impeachment inquiry vote. I didn’t want to be used as a tool against my fellow freshman, who were coming from swing districts.” – Katie Hill, Former U.S. Representative
The former lawmaker has said she wants her new book to show that women can learn from their mistakes and come back from them. It will reportedly be published over the summer.
