Katie Hill's Estranged Husband Claimed He Was Hacked

USTIN, California The estranged husband of Katie Hill, who resigned from Congress after nude pictures of her were posted online, told his parents he believed he had been hacked just before the images were published.

Hill, a Democrat from California's 25th District, resigned Sunday after the conservative website Redstate published text messages and photos suggesting the lawmaker had been in a sexual relationship with a woman staffer on her campaign, as well as a male worker in her congressional office.


Redstate and the Daily Mail also published nude photos of Hill, raising questions about their origin.

In a message to supporters, Hill called the incident a "coordinated campaign carried out by right-wing media and Republican operatives," as well as her "abusive husband," Kenny Heslep.

It's unclear what role Heslep who is currently in the middle of a divorcing Hill and has publicly accused her of sleeping with a male staffer may have played in the scandal, but his father told BuzzFeed News on Wednesday that Heslep believed he had been the victim of hacking before the images were released.

"He was hacked is what he says," Fred Heslep said when contacted at his home in Southern California.

When asked if his son had a role in distributing the images, he added: "He says no."

4. Every professional/NCAA athlete who posts something dumb/offensive on FB/Twitter claims

the same thing once reporters find it, and nobody believes them -- for good reason. Same with this guy. "Oh, shit, there's a law against that?... I WAS HACKED!!!!1!!1!"

7. George Papadopoulos tweeted about the seat, the day BEFORE

the photos surfaced. I do believe he was hacked and I think Papadopoulos, knew.
Just like when Roger Stone announced the Al Franken accuser, the night before.

10. We need a full forensic study

We have the science and people and I would rather know for sure if it is just BS from her ex or a gop scum move.

13. Aren't incels virgins?

You'll have to explain to me how this guy managed to wine and dine and get her to marry him.

14. I'm assuming virginity is not necessarily a requirement.

Incel is merely short for 'Involuntarily Celibate".

However, I'm not an expert on the nuance of self-identification among the bitter young males. So, if calling him a born-again incel fits better then we'll go with that.

12. He was wanting to claim spousal support in the divorce, so I'd be inclined to believe this.

Wouldn't be the first time that team R, or their foreign supporters, did this to smear a Democrat. And on paper he did have a reasonable case for spousal support against her, so I'd find it odd that he would leak photos which would put that in jeopardy.
