Katie Hill Sends Daily Mail Cease and Decease Letter Over Nude Photos

Attorneys for Rep. Katie Hill of California demanded that the Daily Mail remove nude photos it published of the congresswoman in a cease and desist letter to the British publication Thursday evening.

The letter also accused the Daily Mail of libeling Hill by describing a tattoo seen on her hip in one of the nude photos it published Thursday as being a “Nazi-era Iron Cross.”

“The claim that Representative Hill has Nazi imagery on her body in the form of a tattoo is false and defamatory,” the letter stated, without offering clarification on what the tattoo actually represents.

The cease and desist letter was first reported by HuffPost.

Hill is currently under investigation by the House Committee on Ethics over allegations that she had an extramarital affair with her legislative director, Graham Kelly.

Hill has denied having an affair with Kelly, but did admit on Wednesday to having an “inappropriate” affair with a female campaign staffer.

“During the final tumultuous years of my abusive marriage, I became involved in a relationship with someone from my campaign,” Hill wrote in an email to her supporters Wednesday. “I know that even a consensual relationship with a subordinate is inappropriate, but I still allowed it to happen despite my better judgement.”

The conservative publication RedState first published nude photos of Hill in an Oct. 18 article about her alleged sexual relationship with her female campaign staffer and Graham.

It’s unclear if RedState has also received a cease and desist from Hill’s attorneys. The publication’s parent company, TownHall Media, did not immediately return a request for comment.

The Daily Mail did not return a request for comment.
