Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.) blasted a "coordinated campaign from the right wing media" in a scorching video she shared on Monday, accusing them and her husband of spreading around "revenge porn."

On Sunday night, Hill, 32, resigned from Congress after admitting allegations of an improper sexual relationship with a congressional staffer. She went on to blame her husband for revealing the details of her sordid affair.

What are the details of the video?

In the video, a puffy-eyed Hill says, “This coordinated campaign carried out by the right wing media and Republican opponents enabling and perpetuating my husband's abuse by providing him a platform is disgusting and unforgivable, and they will be held accountable.

"I will not allow myself to be a distraction from the constitutional crisis we're faced with, and the critical work of my colleagues," she said. "I cannot let this horrible smear campaign get in the way of that work.

"I will fight to ensure no one else has to live through what I just experienced," Hill continued. "Some people call this electronic assault, digital exploitation, others call it revenge porn. As the victim of it, I call it one of the worst things we can do to our sisters and our daughters."

Hill added that she is still struggling to find meaning in all that has transpired.

"I never claimed to be perfect, but I never thought that my imperfections would be weaponized and used to try to destroy me, and the community I have loved for my entire life," she concluded. "For that, I am so incredibly sorry."

What else?

Hill, who was the first openly bisexual member of Congress, was only in office for 10 months.

Hill was accused of having a three-way "throuple" relationship with her estranged husband, Kenny Heslep, and a young female campaign staffer. Hill was also reportedly sexually involved with Graham Kelly, her legislative director.

Last week, the Daily Mail published a variety of photos of Hill, featuring the congresswoman engaging in bong use and provocatively posing naked.

Hill is expected to officially vacate her office later this month.
