Hill Holds Ground on Denial

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill continues to deny multiple allegations accusing him of sexual improprieties. Hill, who has been asked by elected officials from both parties -- including Governor Eric Holcomb -- to resign, reiterated during a news conference Monday morning at the Statehouse that he won't resign. "I stand before you a condemned man," hill said. "Condemned without trial, condemned without notice, condemned without any basic rights that ensure fairness. These past several days, I've witnessed my name and reputation dragged through the gutter in ways I would never imagine. Apparently, in this climate, the standard is guilty and who cares if you're innocent."

IndyPolitics.org Publisher Abdul-Hakim Shabazz, a Statehouse insider who is also an attorney, told Inside INdiana Business Reporter Mary-Rachel Redman "the story is far from over." He added "I think right now (Hill's) next move is just do your job, because that's all you can do. Do your job and continue calls for an outside, independent prosecutor or special prosecutor to do the interview, talk to all the witnesses, talk to him. That's about the best move he can make at this point."

In a statement issued after the attorney general's news conference, Representative Mara Candelaria Reardon (D-12), who has publicly accused Hill of groping her during a party earlier this year, said:

When we take the oath of office, to serve the citizens of Indiana, we agree to be held to a certain standard and honor the trust the public has placed in us. Curtis Hill, through his actions has betrayed the public trust, and lied about his actions to the very citizens he serves. I will continue to cooperate with any and all investigations into this matter until such a time that Curtis Hill is held accountable for his abhorrent behavior.
