Governor Eric Holcomb, House Speaker Brian Bosma, and Senate President Pro Tempore Davis Long are calling on Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill to resign.
Hill is accused of groping several women at a party the last night of the legislative session.
In a statement released this evening, the two leaders said,
“We believe that the women who came forward with accounts of inappropriate behavior by Attorney General Curtis Hill in the early hours of March 15, 2018, are telling the truth regardless of the Attorney General’s denial of these allegations. We do not believe that Curtis Hill, as chief law enforcement officer of the State of Indiana, can continue to perform his duties, nor should he, and we call for his immediate resignation. We have further requested that the Indiana Inspector General thoroughly investigate these allegations. Sexual harassment is unacceptable at any time, in any place. It makes no difference that these incidents did not occur in a workplace environment. Curtis Hill is not our employee; if he was, he would already have been fired. Because we cannot terminate his employment, we ask instead for him to own up to his actions, apologize publicly to the victims, and tender his resignation immediately.”
Holcomb offered the following statement today regarding allegations made against the Attorney General Curtis Hill:
“Four women had the courage to step forward to report sexual harassment by the Indiana Attorney General. The findings of the recent legislative report are disturbing and, at a minimum, show a violation of the state’s zero-tolerance sexual harassment policy. I concur with Sen. Long and Speaker Bosma that Attorney General Hill should resign, and I support a thorough investigation by the state’s Inspector General.”
Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch issued a statement supporting Holcomb.
Hill has said he would not resign from his office.
