STATEHOUSE–Three Democrat state lawmakers say they will call for the state Speaker of the House to look into Atty. Gen. Curtis Hill’s possible impeachment Monday.

State Reps. Ed DeLaney (D-Indianapolis), Ryan Dvorak (D-South Bend), and Matt Pierce (D-Bloomington) will be asking Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis) to launch an investigation into possible impeachment over sexual misconduct accusations from four women, which they say happened during a party after the legislative session in a downtown Indianapolis bar.

Hill has refused to resign, despite calls from top Republican lawmakers, and even Gov. Eric Holcomb.

Hill said Friday that he believed some of the stories were made up, and even coordinated.

The House would be charged with adoption of articles of impeachment, while the Senate would conduct a trial as a court of impeachment.

The allegations are also currently being investigated by the state’s Inspector General.

“When the leaders of your own party make it clear that a person should step down from office for being unfit, it would seem clear that there should be only one prudent course of action: take the hint and leave,” DeLaney said. 

“However, it is apparent that we do not live in ordinary times, so it is incumbent upon the legislative branch to pursue a course of action outlined in the Indiana Constitution. We do have responsibilities to protect the integrity of our state government on behalf of the people of Indiana.”
