pronounced KAY-tee // hil

Hill was the representative for California’s 25th congressional district and was a Democrat. She served from 2019 to 2019.

Alleged misconduct & resolution

In October 2019, nude photos of Rep. Hill were published by conservative websites along with the allegation that she was having a sexual relationship with her Chief of Staff. Rep. Hill claimed that the photos & allegation came from her soon to be ex-husband as part of their divorce. Rep. Hill denied the allegation, which would have been a violation of House rules, but did acknowledge a relationship with a campaign staff member which is not against House rules. A few days after the House Ethics Committee opened an investigation into Rep. Hill, she resigned from Congress.

Does 1 not sound like a lot? Very few bills are ever enacted — most legislators sponsor only a handful that are signed into law. But there are other legislative activities that we don’t track that are also important, including offering amendments, committee work and oversight of the other branches, and constituent services.

We consider a bill enacted if one of the following is true: a) it is enacted itself, b) it has a companion bill in the other chamber (as identified by Congress) which was enacted, or c) if at least about half of its provisions were incorporated into bills that were enacted (as determined by an automated text analysis, applicable beginning with bills in the 110th Congress).

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
