California U.S. Rep. Katie Hill announced her resignation Sunday, as she faced an ethics investigation into an alleged relationship with a staffer. 

“It is with a broken heart that today I announce my resignation from Congress,” the California Democrat wrote in a resignation letter posted to her Twitter account. “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.”

The announcement follows public relevations of an alleged relationship with a campaign staffer. In addition, several news outlets published intimate photos of Hill as part of their reporting on the alleged affair. Hill, who is currently seeking a divorce from her husband, has said U.S. Capitol Police are “investigating the situation and potential legal violations.”

“During the final tumultuous years of my abusive marriage, I became involved in a relationship with someone on my campaign. I know that even a consensual relationship with a subordinate is inappropriate, but I still allowed it to happen despite my better judgment,” Hill wrote in a statement sent to supporters last week.

Hill has denied a separate allegation that she engaged in a relationship with a member of her congressional staff. 

Hill is a first-term House member who identifies as bisexual and was considered a rising star in the Democratic party.
