US congresswoman makes final speech to House

US lawmaker Katie Hill gave her last speech on the House floor. She resigned from Congress following allegations that she had an affair with a Capitol Hill aide, which she denies.

The ethics committee launched an inquiry after conservative blog RedState reported allegations that Ms Hill had an affair with one of her congressional aides, a man.

The same blog separately reported claims that Ms Hill, who is bisexual, had also engaged in a three-way consensual romance with a female campaign staff member and her husband. It published naked images of the politician.

In an emotional speech, Hill spoke about the "right-wing media" seeking "clicks" following the publication of the photos.
