Accused of Harassment, Indiana AG Refuses Calls to Resign and Denies Wrongdoing
Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, in prepared comments read before journalists Monday morning, said his reputation has been "dragged through the gutter."
Standing alone at a podium inside his office at the Indiana Statehouse, Hill outlined a defense of his character while bashing the media and attacking the validity of a legislative investigation against him. He also characterized bipartisan demands for his resignation as unfair and damaging to his reputation.
"I stand before you a condemned man. Condemned without trial. Condemned without notice. Condemned without the benefit of any basic rights that ensure fairness," Hill said.
Hill, a Republican, faces an Indiana Inspector General investigation after four women accused Hill of inappropriately touching them at an Indianapolis bar in March. Hill has repeatedly denied any inappropriate behavior in written statements and did so again Monday at the news briefing.
