WASHINGTON — Equality California, the nation’s largest statewide LGBTQ civil rights organization, released the following statement from Executive Director Rick Zbur after U.S. Representative Katie Hill (CA-25) announced that she will resign from Congress:

“Since January, Katie Hill has served the LGBTQ community and the people of California’s 25th district with honor and integrity. She fought for us every day. Her treatment by the cabal of right-wing media and a revengeful husband was abusive and unconscionable. The double standard that women — and LGBTQ women in particular — face in politics and the workplace is a sad stain on this nation. America needs leaders like Katie. She always had our backs — we and thousands of her grateful constituents still have hers.”
