Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Yolanda Orozco has ordered former Rep Katie Hill (D-Calif.) to pay the legal fees for her failed revenge-porn lawsuit.

Fox News reports that Hill must pay legal fees for Mail Media Inc., the parent company of the Daily Mail, totaling nearly $220,000.

Late last year, the disgraced freshman congresswoman filed a “revenge porn” lawsuit after naked photos of Hill and her female staffer surfaced. The intimate photos were published by the Daily Mail.

Hill’s lawsuit, however, was thrown out early this spring when Judge Orozco agreed with the Daily Mail’s claim that the photos were a matter of public interest since Hill was a public official.

After the legal fees order, Hill tweeted in full leftist victimhood-mode:

As those of us in California’s 25th district know all too well, it’s never Katie’s fault. It’s the system’s fault, her ex-husband’s fault, the no-good-horrible right-wingers’ fault; no way is it her fault.

One thing is sure, Katie may be down, but she’s not letting this opportunity to raise cash go to waste. Chip in and you too can help pay for the consequences of Katie’s poor judgment so she won’t have to.
