Protesters target attorney general
Dozens of protesters called for Indiana Attorney General Curtis T. Hill Jr. to resign Saturday over allegations that he inappropriately touched a state lawmaker and several other women.
The Indianapolis Star reported that about 60 people gathered outside the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis. Several lawmakers attended. Protesters carried placards with crossed-out red “equal” signs.
Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) and Statehouse GOP leaders called on Hill (R) to resign Thursday.
An internal legislative memo leaked to media outlets says a lawmaker and three legislative staff members allege that Hill drunkenly groped them in March during a party. State Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon (D) said she was among the victims.
Hill has called the allegations “vicious and false” and has rebuffed calls to resign.
