INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Republican senate candidate Mike Braun is joining the growing chorus of voices calling for the resignation of Attorney General Curtis Hill.
Braun, who is running to replace the incumbent, Democrat Joe Donnelly, says he believes Hill should resign following allegations that the attorney general inappropriately touched four women during a March end-of-session party.
The Braun campaign provided News 8 with the following statement regarding the matter:
The allegations against Attorney General Hill are troubling and serious. I support the Governor and bipartisan leadership’s calls for his resignation. And I support this being referred to the Inspector General for a full investigation. – Mike Braun
Hill held a press conference Monday, July 9 and responded to the allegations. He said he’s refusing to step down, going on to say that he looks forward to telling his side of the story.
Donnelly issued a statement Thursday:
“My first and foremost concern has been for the women who are the victims of this outrageous conduct. I had hoped that Attorney General Hill would have used the holiday as an opportunity to take a second look at his situation and do the right thing. That has not occurred. It’s time for Attorney General Hill to resign immediately.”
