RedState Publishes Revenge Porn

The conservative blog RedState published revenge porn of Rep. Katie Hill on Oct. 18, in the so-called name of journalism and exposing “a person in power who used that power for sexual satisfaction.” The freshman Democratic lawmaker from California announced her resignation on Sunday.

“This is what needs to happen so that the good people who supported me will no longer be subjected to the pain inflicted by my abusive husband and the brutality of hateful political operatives who seem to happily provide a platform to a monster who is driving a smear campaign built around cyber exploitation,” Hill wrote in her resignation letter.

RedState published a redacted topless photo of Hill in a link to their story, with the text, “Click to view image — Warning: Explicit Image,” followed by a claim that they could have published more images. “RedState was also provided with intimate photographs of the women, which we have chosen not to publish,” Jen Van Laar, Red State’s deputy managing editor who authored the story, wrote.
