Verbatim: Zody to Hill: Resign

The following was released on Tues. July 3, 2018 by the Indiana Democratic Party: 

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement after a report examining multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against Attorney General Curtis Hill emerged Monday. 

“Like Governor Eric Holcomb has previously stated, Hoosier Democrats agree that there's ‘zero room for harassment of any kind in any state government workplace’. These actions are never acceptable. We believe the multiple allegations against the Attorney General are serious, and raise material doubts over whether he can effectively carry out the duties of his office. Hill is Indiana’s chief law enforcement officer. It is not only his job to carry out the laws passed by the Indiana General Assembly, but also to protect Hoosiers from waste, fraud and abuse. The allegations reported yesterday are beyond troubling and wildly inappropriate in a professional or social environment for any person, much less a statewide elected official charged with such responsibility. Attorney General Hill should spare Hoosiers from this controversy and resign from office.”
