- Former local Congresswoman Katie Hill, who resigned because of a sex scandal, is now speaking out in an exclusive interview with George Stephanopoulos.

- You know, this is the first time she's addressing her divorce-- also revenge porn. And really, that's what ultimately led to her resignation. ABC's Kenneth Moton has the details.

KENNETH MOTON: In this morning's "GMA First Look," an ABC News exclusive--

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: How much of you regrets the decision to actually resign? Any part of you think you should have stayed and fought?

KENNETH MOTON: --George Stephanopoulos one-on-one with former Congresswoman Katie Hill.

KATIE HILL: This is the last speech that I will give from this floor as a member of Congress.

KENNETH MOTON: In October, the freshman Democrat from California resigned after intimate photos were leaked online. This morning, she's speaking out.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: The amount of trauma you've been dealing with is kind of unfathomable-- your brother dying, your mom having brain surgery. You wrote in the days after your resignation, you seemed like you were very close to suicide.

KATIE HILL: Mm-hmm. Yeah, it's a lot.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Was the biggest mistake having a relationship with a campaign staffer?

KATIE HILL: Absolutely. I started to run for Congress. I was a nobody. I was a nonprofit director that was that 29 years old when I jumped in. I did not have any political experience, and so I was a complete long shot.
