Morgan Desjardins Bio, Wiki
Morgan Desjardins is a 24-year-old California woman and who worked as the campaign staffer for Democratic Rep. Katie Hill. Desjardins is in the public spotlight after it emerged that she was involved in a “throuple” relationship with Hill and Hill’s estranged husband, Kenny Heslep, while she was helping Hill get elected to Congress in 2018.
A throuple is a “three-person relationship.” Hill said in a statement that it was a bad idea to be involved in a relationship like that with the then 22-year-old Desjardins and her husband, while she was a subordinate on her campaign staff, because of the power dynamic.
Katie Hill is a first-term congresswoman from California’s 25th congressional district. On October 28th, she announced in a statement posted on Twitter that she would be resigning from Congress amid an ethics investigation into accusations of improper relationships with a Congressional staffer and a campaign aide and the leak of nude photos that have led to a possible criminal revenge porn investigation. Hill was first elected to represent Californias 25th District in 2018.
It is with a broken heart that today I announce my resignation from Congress. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I believe it is the best thing for my constituents, my community, and our country.

Morgan Desjardins Career & Education
Desjardins grew up in Santa Clarita and earned her college degree at the University of California at Davis, where she was an undergraduate research student between 2013 and 2017.
According to the Federal Election Commission, she was being paid as a consultant on Hill’s congressional team as recently as September 2019. Between the years of 2017 to 2018, she made roughly $50,000 as a senior staffer, and about $14,000 thus far in 2019.
In an article entitled “Bridging the Gap,” written in August 2018 in the Medium, she details the importance of equal pay between men and women and included a direct quote from Hill. She wrote,“Frankly, to change these cultural barriers in the workplace, we need more women in office. As Katie says, ‘If we want a government more representative of the public’s values and perspectives, we need more women weighing in on all policy decisions.’… Working for Katie Hill has been an extraordinary opportunity.
Zorgan Desjardins and Katie Hill Affair
Desjardins was identified by The Daily Mail as the staffer seen in nude photos with Hill, which were posted by the British tabloid and by the conservative site Red State. Hill has asked for an investigation into the leak of the nude photos.
The explicit photos were taken on September 11, 2017, around the same time Desjardins was hired by Hill as a staffer. In the pictures, Hill is seen holding a bong while naked, and showing off what appears to be a Nazi-era Iron Cross on her lower right hip, according to The Daily Mail.
On October 18th, 2019, RedState.org published photos that purported to show Hill with the female staffer, whose face was blurred out. The outlet also published text messages that it claimed were sent between Hill and the staffer.
On October 23rd, 2019, she wrote a letter to her constituents about her affair with Desjardins. She wrote, “During the final tumultuous years of my abusive marriage, I became involved in a relationship with someone on my campaign. I know that even a consensual relationship with a subordinate is inappropriate, but I still allowed it to happen against my better judgment. For that, I apologize.”
In May 2018, HBO’s Vice News Tonight did a feature on Hill in which she was heavily featured, along with Hill’s then-husband, Heslap. In the episode, which tracks what it’s like being a young woman running for office, she is always by Hill’s side, with her official title slated as “Operations Director.” In the episode, she says around the five-minute mark, “Politics is really weird and you never really know who’s telling the truth.”
