California Democratic Rep. Katie Hill, who faces a House Ethics Committee investigation following allegations of an intimate relationship with her legislative director, is also accused by her estranged husband Kenny Heslep of stranding him before she left for Washington, D.C.
Heslep and Hill, who were married for 9 years, have been embroiled in divorce proceedings since last June. Hill claimed Heslep was “abusive” toward her and blamed him for the naked photograph showing her brushing the hair of a campaign staffer that was released to RedState last week.
However, according to Heslep’s divorce complaint, obtained by CNBC, Hill seemed to have more control over the finances and direction of the relationship. Before they wed, Hill and Heslep “talked about what expectations each of us had about marriage.”
