The dark past of Rep. Katie Porter, a Democrat from California, has been uncovered by the Daily Mail, and it’s not easy reading. The article alleges that Porter was an abusive wife and terrorized her ex-husband, Matthew Hoffman, becoming more erratic and dangerous as she climbed the ranks of the Democratic Party.

Porter is claimed to have repeatedly screamed at her husband and her children, leading her kids to do the same. She stands accused of having poured scalding hot mashed potatoes over her husband’s head, causing severe burns, in one particularly wild accusation.
Rep. Katie Porter: “It’s hard to go to work every day with Marjorie Taylor Greene as a colleague.”

According to court documents obtained by the Mail, Porter “commandeered a chaotic household with an iron fist.” All of this allegedly occurred while Porter was rising to the top of the Democratic Party, a stark contrast to her squeaky-clean public image.
The allegations are shocking and, if true, reveal a side of Porter that the public was previously unaware of. It’s clear that Porter has no place in any public office given her history of abusive behavior.
The timing of the report is also significant, as it comes hot on the heels of Porter’s new memoir. One has to wonder if Porter included the revelations in the book or if she hoped to bury her past beneath a new narrative.
It’s clear that this information must be taken seriously, and Porter must be held accountable for her actions. If the allegations are true, then Porter should be forced to resign from office, as it would be unacceptable for someone with such a violent past to continue to hold public office.
