美国女议员辞职 涉嫌与国会工作职员有不合法关系

  美国民主党众议员Katie Hill因为被爆与国会工作人员发生“不正当关系”,周日宣布辞职。

  “It is with a broken heart that today I announce my resignation from Congress,” Hill said in a statement Sunday。 “This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I believe it is the best thing for my constituents, my community, and our country。”

  希尔在(当地时间)周日的一份声明中说:“今天我怀着十分悲伤的心情宣布辞职。” “这是我做过的最艰难的事情,但我认为这样对我的选民,社区和我们的国家来说都是最好的。”

  News of Hill‘s resignation comes after the House Committee on Ethics announced Wednesday it was opening an investigation into allegations Hill engaged in an improper relationship with a congressional staffer in possible violation of House rules which were changed last year to ban relationships between members and their staff。

  希尔是在众议院道德委员会上周三宣布将对她与一名国会工作人员有不正当关系进行调查后宣布辞职的。希尔涉嫌违反众议院去年修改的规则:禁止议员和工作人员发生关系。

  Hill was under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for allegations of an improper sexual relationship with a male congressional staffer, a claim she denied。

  众议院道德委员会正在对希尔进行调查,指控她与一名男性国会工作人员有不正当性关系,但她否认了这一说法。

  迫于压力辞职?

  10月18日开始,保守派网站RedState.org上流传出一些关于希尔的性绯闻和私照。

  The outlet accused Hill of having a sexual relationship with her legislative director, Graham Kelly, which the website claimed was uncovered by Hill’s husband, Kenny Heslep。 Hill vehemently denied the relationship with Kelly, who also worked on her congressional campaign。

  该媒体指责希尔与她的立法主管格雷厄姆•凯利发生性关系,并被他丈夫肯尼•赫斯里普撞见。希尔否认了与凯利的关系,凯利也参与了她的国会竞选活动。

  Hill said the publication of personal and intimate photos was an “appalling invasion of my privacy。”

  希尔说,发布私人和私密照片是“对我隐私的侵犯”。

  32岁的希尔在2018年中期选举中当选国会议员,因为击败了代表摇摆区的共和党现任议员,被视为党中的后起之秀和女性的榜样。然而谁也没有想到,她的政治生涯会那么快结束。

  Hill ran as a first-time candidate with no political experience。 As executive director of a Los Angeles non-profit assisting the homeless, she leveraged her background to raise millions in a grassroots campaign -- with nearly all of the money raised from individual donors。

  希尔是没有政治经验的初次议员候选人。作为洛杉矶一家致力于帮助无家可归者的非营利组织的执行董事,她利用自己的背景在基层竞选中筹集了数百万美元的资金,几乎所有资金都是来自个人捐助者。

  No one had any idea her tenure would be so brief。 And yet, Hill tweeted late Sunday night “To every girl and woman - to everyone who believes in this fight - this isn‘t over。”

  没有人知道她的任职时间会如此短暂。然而,希尔在周日深夜发推文说:“我想对每个女孩和成年女性说,要相信这场斗争,还没有结束。”

  一些网友认为,希尔是自食其果。

  It’s called taking  responsibility  for your own iresponsible actions

  这就是所谓的对自己的不负责任的行为付出代价。

  也有网友认为,社会对男女有不同的道德标准。

  I wish you wouldn‘t resign。 It’s sad that we have different rules for men and women, but if you feel you had to resign, I can think of at least ten other government officials who should have resigned before you did。 Good luck。

  我希望你没有辞职。 令人遗憾的是,我们对男人和女人有不同的道德标准,但是如果你觉得必须辞职,我可以想到至少还有十个其他政府官员应该在你之前辞职。祝你好运。
