The Democrats can’t seem to get away from embarrassing allegations of misconduct.
One prominent leftist after another has taken a tumble in recent years.
Now one top Barack Obama ally just got exposed in one ugly sex scandal.
California freshman congresswoman Katie Hill has found herself mired in scandal after her relationship with a female staffer was exposed.
The relationship with the staffer also involved Hill’s husband Kenny Heslep, but the sordid affair ended after two years when Hill broke off the relationship and became estranged from Heslep, who filed for divorce.
Hill rose to prominence quickly, conducting interviews with HBO and Vice News.
She was even endorsed by Barack Obama in her congressional run and won to become a freshman in the latest House class.
And according to text messages, Hill was also involved in an affair with Graham Kelly, one of her top advisers.
Hill is the latest in a string of high-profile liberals in politics, media, and entertainment who have been embroiled in scandal.
Minnesota Senator Al Franken resigned after a spate of women came forward accusing him of groping them while taking photos.
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison was accused of domestic violence involving a girlfriend.
Also in Minnesota, freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar was accused of having an affair with a political consultant, and she might’ve violated campaign finance law by paying him without an itemized list of expenses.
Shortly after the story broke, Omar’s husband abruptly filed for divorce.
In news media, NBC News’s Matt Lauer was hit with several allegations of sexual misconduct, including forcible rape.
NBC allegedly was aware of his behavior, but did nothing about it.
In Hollywood, Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey were both exiled from the business after their exploits were uncovered.
They both tried to shield themselves from criticism by doubling down on their commitment to left-wing politics, but it didn’t work in either instance.
Actress Asia Argento, one of the leaders of the #MeToo movement, was accused of having sex with a 17-year-old boy when she was in her late 30s.
Activist Lisa Borders, creator of the “Time’s Up” movement was forced to step down after her son was accused of sexual misconduct.
Leftists are masters of projection.
You can almost guarantee that they’re engaging in whatever behavior they’re accusing others of perpetrating.
Katie Hill’s tumble is particularly embarrassing because she had been built up as a rising star.
She got an endorsement from a former president, received disproportionate media coverage, and defeated a Republican incumbent.
In a desperate attempt to save face, Hill claimed that her affairs were the result of abuse from Heslep, but text messages appear to blow up that narrative.
Democrats have created an impossible standard of morals regarding language and behavior, yet they can’t even be trusted to follow the most basic standards of decency.
