Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb says he’s sure that the Inspector General will be fair and thorough when it comes to investigating allegations of sexual misconduct against Attorney General Curtis Hill.
The Inspector General is looking into allegations that Hill groped four women at a bar at an end of session party back in March. A special prosecutor has also been requested.
Hill has denied the allegations and various statehouse leaders, including Holcomb, have called on Hill to resign. Hill has denied the allegations, says he won’t step down and has argued he can’t get fair treatment. He’s also filed a legal challenge to the Inspector General’s ability to investigate the matter.
Holcomb says Hill will be treated fairly by the Inspector General. You can hear Holcomb in the Leon-Tailored Audio above. It runs about seven minutes.
Holcomb made his comments shortly after the Governor’s Award reception at this year’s Indiana Black Expo.
He also discusses National Intelligence Director Dan Coats’ assessment of the investigation into Russian meddling of the 2016 election.
