Hill stepped down last year after it was revealed she had an inappropriate affair with at least two of her staffers.

According to reports, the Hill campaign received a $500 in-kind contribution from Dam for website security consulting. She would go on to secure the Democrat nomination over her opponents Jess Phoenix and Bryan Caforio.

On the night of the final debate between the candidates, the alleged victims’ accounts went offline.

The Hill campaign has yet to comment on Dam’s arrest.

Presidential candidate Joe Biden is saying Monday’s Iowa caucus will be a very tight race.

“I think it’s going to be really close, we’re neck and neck. Bernie’s up, I’m up. They’re basically a statistical tie, and we’ll see who shows up.” – Joe Biden, former Vice President of the United States

His remarks came in response to a newly released Wall Street Journal and NBC poll, which showed 27 percent of Democrat primary voters nationwide favored Sen. Bernie Sanders. Biden followed closely behind with 26 percent of the vote. Sen. Elizabeth Warren garnered 15 percent support.

The data showed Sanders has a remarkable lead among young Democrat voters, whereas Biden’s support came mainly from older Democrats. Sanders polled nearly 30 points ahead of Biden with Democrat voters under age 50 and nearly 40 points higher with those under age 35. As for Democrat voters over 50 years old, the former vice president held a strong 25 point lead.

When asked whether or not he had fallen out of touch with today’s politics, Biden said that’s not the case.

“The next president, from day one, is going to have to stand on that world stage and not have any time for on the job training,” he said, “I’m running because of the fact I have this experience, not in spite of the fact I have this experience.”

Candidate Pete Buttigieg polled at seven percent, Sen. Amy Klobuchar captured five percent and Andrew Yang drew four percent of the support. The survey was conducted across 428 registered voters earlier this month.
