Disgraced former Congresswoman Katie Hill is mounting a new effort through the Her Time organization she launched in February of 2020.

From The Hill:
Former Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.) launched a new effort on Tuesday to protect the Democratic majority in the House, backing 16 Democratic women running for reelection in next year’s midterms.
Hill, in a video announcing the initiative, said that because of redistricting and Republican gerrymandering, Democrats are “at serious risk of losing the House in the midterms and losing everything that we’ve worked so hard for over the last few years.”
“When I was elected in 2018, we took the majority by electing an incredible class of women. But now many of their seats are in jeopardy,” she added.
An incredible class which she is no longer a part of due to her inappropriate relationship with a staffer, among other things. Since her resignation in 2019, Hill has been relegated to cheerleading and campaigning from the sidelines. Hill claimed on Axios on HBO that she is considering another campaign for office, but then qualified it by saying it would “take a lot” for her to run in 2022. Hill said she’s much happier out of Congress than in it.
If Katie Hill had the San Francisco elite golden cushions of Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Hair Gel) or an Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-D-Bag), she would probably still be in Congress. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does whatever she pleases, and if she thought Hill was an asset, rather than a liability to her wicked schemes, the House Democrats would have run interference for her and weathered the storm. Hill would have never been asked to resign. The fact that Hill was asked to resign is a pretty good indicator that while they appreciate her shaking the pom-poms and raising money for the Blue team, it is doubtful that she will ever go national again.
Instead, Hill is using what political capital she has left to fundraise and back 16 vulnerable Democrat seats held by women, from Virginia to Washington State. Virginia Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Crybaby), had a particularly brutal battle getting re-elected in 2020, and expressed her anger in a congressional meeting soon after the 2020 Election. Spanberger is also being targeted by the American Action Network (AAN), a right-of-center PAC, along with several other female Congress critters whose seats Katie Hill is hoping to protect. These poor, unfortunate souls would be: Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07), Cindy Axne (IA-03), Sharice Davids (KS-03), Elissa Slotkin (MI-08), and Elaine Luria (VA-02).
With Dementia Joe’s approval ratings in the toilet, and the Democrat Party agenda being tossed like a house salad by Senators Joe Manchin (D-Bulwark) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Badass), redistricting is probably the least of their problems.
So, good luck with that, Katie.
Her Time is not only Hill’s way to rehabilitate her reputation and stay politically relevant, but according to an October 2020 New York Post piece, it appears to be her main cash cow.
The California Democrat — who was forced to resign from Congress last year in the wake of a staffer-involved sex scandal — announced in March that she was launching HER Time, a PAC which Hill said would provide financial support and mentorship to women running for office.
But FEC filings show that the committee paid a company solely registered to Hill — HER Time, Inc. — $25,000 for political consulting between July and September 2020.
HER Time also paid another $47,850 to consultants and bookstores following the August release of her memoir, “She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality.”
It might help Hill’s credibility a bit if she bothered to pay her legal bills. Hill lost the revenge porn lawsuit she filed against the journalists and publications who broke the story of her affair, and part of the judgment against Hill requires she pay their legal fees. According to Harmeet Dhillon, an attorney for two of the defendants, Katie’s been skipping out on the creditors.
Does anyone know where she is launching this effort from? I've been trying to serve her with judgment creditor examination papers for weeks. She sued, she lost –this isn't a game. https://t.co/qCaf7Ypk9f

She owes $83,000 to one journalist. That’s a pretty big nut. Those Democrat Congresswomen better hope there’s enough cash in the Her Time coffers when it’s needed.
