Pro­test­ers tar­get at­tor­ney gen­eral

The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

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.
