When it comes to the allegations of relationships with staffers, Dittmar acknowledges that Hill faces "genuine ethical questions around her behavior", but, she said, "Instead of saying, 'Well men haven't lost their positions because of this type of behavior, ' if we're really committed to creating a better institution, you say, 'Well men and women should be equally held to this higher standard'".
Hill, who is openly bisexual and in the midst of a contentious divorce, condemned the "misogynistic culture" for enabling her "abusive ex" to continue his abuse by circulating the photographs.
After the scandal broke, the House Ethics Committee announced it would investigate Hill's conduct and allegations that she had a sexual relationship with a congressional staffer. Hill has denied having a relationship with her congressional staffer and there is no evidence of that alleged relationship. Hill is in the midst of divorce proceedings with her husband, whom she blamed for leaking the photos. The House Ethics Committee announced October 23 that it was investigating the allegation that Hill was romantically involved with the legislative director, Graham Kelly.

Hill added she would not ever "shirk" responsibility for the ending of her time in Congress, but said the issue is "bigger than me".
Hill also protested Trump's continued presence in office and said a potential ethics investigation would distract from the impeachment inquiry.

Hill did, however, admit to having a relationship with a campaign staffer before taking office, a relationship for which she apologized in a statement to her supporters last week.
"I'm leaving but we have men who have been credibly accused of intentional acts of sexual violence and remain in board rooms, on the Supreme Court, in this very body, and worst of all in the Oval Office", Hill said, referring to President Donald Trump.
So, the fight goes on - to create the change that every woman and girl in this country deserves. But, she said, "I realize that hiding away and disappearing would be the one unforgivable sin".
