    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested this week that ousted Democrat Rep. Katie Hillís (D-CA) fate was rooted in sexism, proclaiming that ďthis doesnít happen to male members in the same way.Ē

    Hill announced her resignation early this week after a mountain of allegations of inappropriate sexual relationships with members of her congressional staff surfaced, including a ďthroupleĒ relationship with a female staffer. After photographic evidence surfaced online, Hill admitted to one of the relationships and announced her resignation in a video Monday, blaming ďright-wing media and Republican opponentsĒ for ďenabling and perpetuating [her] husbandís abuse by providing him a platform.Ē
    Further down:

    Last year, former Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) resigned after a woman with whom he had allegedly pursued an extramarital affair leaked explicit selfies that he had sent her. (Barton was already divorced by the time the scandal broke.)

    If there is a double standard, it is on the Democratic side.

    As the Palm Beach Post noted on Thursday, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) ó who was impeached and removed from the federal judiciary in 1989 ó has carried on an affair with an aide for years. He appears to be violating House rules ó yet his party has never referred him to the House Ethics Committee, as it did with Hill.

    Additionally, former Reps. Pat Meehan (R-PA), Trent Franks (R-AZ), David Wu (D-OR), Anthony Weiner (D-NY), Eric Massa (D-NY), and Sen. Al Franken (D-NY) were driven to resign.
    Thought they didn't resign Clinton and Kennedy slept with aides.

    Don't sleep with your staff. It doesn't matter if you are male or female. Just don't do it.

    The CEO of McDonalds was just let go for the very same thing because it is against company policy. I wonder if AOC is aware of this?

    Her fate was rooted in her arrogance and stupidity.

    Sher thought being a dummycrat she was above the law.

    I think she thought she was above the law because she is a woman.

    Nobody Is Above the Law. That's why we're calling on Congress to Impeach & Remove Donald Trump.

    The night before the House of Representatives takes a historic vote to impeach Trump, we'll head to every congressional office and public square to declare that Nobody Is Above the Law as representatives finalize their positions and senators look on.

    Join this historic nationwide mobilization on the eve of Trump's impeachment vote: RSVP for an event near you or sign up to host one. Events will be visible, family-friendly, public gatherings to demonstrate to our lawmakers that their constituents are behind them to defend the Constitutionóand that Trump has left them no alternative to uphold their oath of office but to support impeachment and removal.

    Plenty of men have gotten in trouble for what got Katie Hill in trouble.
