Curtis Hill impeachment resolution to be delivered Monday

INDIANAPOLIS -- Three Democratic Indiana State Representatives will ask House Speaker Brian Bosma Monday to launch an investigation into whether Attorney General Curtis Hill should be impeached. 

Reps. Ed DeLaney (D-Indianapolis), Ryan Dvorak (D-South Bend), and Matt Pierce (D-Bloomington) have authored a House resolution, urging Bosma (R-Indianapolis) to open an investigation into Hill's alleged sexual misconduct. The proposed investigation would submit its findings to the House of Representatives on whether there is enough to impeach Hill. 

The impeachment would be pursuant to Article 6, Section 7 of the Indiana Constitution, which reads: 

Section 7. All State officers shall, for crime, incapacity, or negligence, be liable to be removed from office, either by impeachment by the House of Representatives, to be tried by the Senate, or by a joint resolution of the General Assembly; two-thirds of the members elected to each branch voting, in either case, therefor.

The allegations of sexual misconduct against Hill allegedly happened on March 15. A lawmaker and three legislative staffers said Hill inappropriately touched them at a party shortly after Indiana’s legislative session came to a close. Hill has denied all allegations. 

"Curtis Hill deserves an opportunity to step forward and tell his story -- not just make denials," DeLaney said. "We can give him that opportunity in the impeachment process. The supermajority deserves an opportunity to say where they stand on this."
