Black Legislative Caucus Says It's Time for AG Hill to Go
INDIANAPOLIS--It's time for Atty. Gen. Curtis Hill to go, said the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus, in a prepared statement Friday morning. Hill, a black Republican, is accused of groping and inappropriate conduct during a party with lawmakers at a downtown Indianapolis bar in March.
The party was after the state's legislative session had wrapped up. One of the accusers, who says she was groped, is a lawmaker.
“Today, we join the clarion call insisting that our Attorney General resign his office. This is the top law enforcement official in our state, and we cannot have someone in that position whom people cannot trust," said the statement from the Black Caucus.
“We want our staff and women legislators to feel comfortable in the Statehouse. They should not be subjected to the kind of unacceptable behavior that has been described in recent days."
The Caucus said women should not be afraid in the workplace.
“We realize that these events can easily discourage women from pursuing a career in politics. It took a lot of courage for those four women to make this report. They should be commended for speaking out and deserve all of our support."
“There is only one clear course of action here. The Attorney General must do the right thing for himself and the women involved. He must apologize for his conduct, and resign his office. No other outcome is acceptable.”
