  • “In coordinated statements Thursday night, Gov. Eric Holcomb, House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate leader David Long demanded that Hill, a fellow Republican, step down immediately.”
  • “A chorus of other voices, including Lt. Gov Suzanne Crouch and Secretary of State Connie Lawson, both Republicans, would soon join.”
  • “In their joint statement, Long and Bosma said they believe Hill’s accusers ‘are telling the truth regardless of the attorney general’s denial of these allegations…We do not believe that Curtis Hill, as chief law enforcement officer of the state of Indiana, can continue to perform his duties, nor should he, and we call for his immediate resignation,’they said.”
  • “’Curtis Hill is not our employee; if he was, he would already have been fired,’ [Long and Bosma] said. ‘Because we cannot terminate his employment, we ask instead for him to own up to his actions, apologize publicly to the victims, and tender his resignation immediately.’
  • “Holcomb agreed and said the findings of a recent legislative report about the allegations ‘are disturbing and, at a minimum, show a violation of the state’s zero tolerance sexual harassment policy.’”
