Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA 25th District) Nudes: My Hometown - Santa Clarita, CA - Now the New Pottersville

SANTA CLARITA, CA - For a long-time, I have thought of my hometown of Santa Clarita as a modern day Pottersville. Pottersville, as you may recall, is the fictional counterpart of Bedford Falls, the town where George Bailey grew up in the Frank Capra classic, "It's  a Wonderful Life." Pottersville is a decadent sinful place, the place that Bedford Falls becomes when George's guardian angel, Clarence, grants his wish to "have never been born."

I led the slow growth movement out there in the early 1990s. I was disappointed when our efforts to protect the community failed. (I didn't understand enough about fundraising and organizing at the time.)

The big news today is that the Congresswoman in the area - Dem. Rep. Katie Hill - has been compromised by a nude photo showing her combing the hair of a 22 year old female staff member Morgan Desjardins.

As far as I can tell a number of hot looking photographs and text messages show that Dem. Rep. Katie Hill was involved in a long-term sexual relationship with this young female campaign staffer. The woman, Morgan Desjardins, was hired by Hill in late 2017 and quickly became involved in a “throuple” relationship with Hill and her estranged husband, Kenny Heslep.

Katie Hill got into office thanks to a weak Republican incumbent - the lame son of one of my political opponents a lifetime ago - and a massive $5 million plus contribution from billionaire Michael Bloomberg to buy television ads which ran in the district.

Thanks to our enterprising friends at Redstate, we are now free to flip through several photographs showing Hill and the staffer kissing along with a photograph of a nude Rep. Hill brushing the staffer’s hair. Additional intimate photographs of the women were also provided to Redstate.

True Pundit reports that Rep. Hill also reportedly had a year-long affair with her now Legislative Director, Graham Kelly. Reportedly, once Hill’s husband found out about this affair he filed for divorce. While this and Hill’s “throuple” relationship all involve consenting adults, there are some legal and ethical issues. Members of Congress, for example, aren't allowed to have sex with their employees. A review of FEC records for Hill’s 2018 and 2020 campaigns reveals that the staffer was first paid in November 2017, with her payment classified as “salary,” making her an employee.

Ultimately, the real message here is that Katie Hill is too stupid and too careless to represent her district. How hard is it to avoid posing for nude photos of yourself combing your staff member's hair?

The Republicans in Santa Clarita now have an opportunity to flip this seat red, but only if they demonstrate the responsibility needed to recruit a strong, impressive candidate to oppose Katie Hill next year. Such a task should be as urgent as finding where Uncle Billy lost the day's deposits from the Bailey Thrift & Loan.
