More Hoosier Leaders Condemn Attorney General

Indianapolis - As the investigation into Indiana's attorney general moves forward, there are new calls for his resignation.

We caught up with  Indiana's Lt. Governor, Suzanne Crouch, at Gleaner's food bank in Indianapolis, Tuesday morning.

She made it quite clear about  how she feels about the accusations against hill... and what should happen next.

Lt. Governor, Suzanne Crouch said Tuesday "The Governor believes the women who came forward. Also, those accusations indicate a zero-tolerance.....those actions violate the state's zero-tolerance policy."

Thursday, Gov. Eric Holcomb in a statement called for Attorney General Hill, to resign from his office amid allegations of inappropriately touching four women.

Since then, nobody from the upper reaches of Indiana's Government has gone on-camera to talk about it....until now.

Tuesday, we asked Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch...point-blank if she thinks Hill should resign.

"I formally and fully support the Governor's statement that calls for Attorney General Curtis Hill to resign," She said Tuesday.

Marion County's Prosecutor announced he's asking for a special prosecutor to investigate... to avoid a conflict-of-interest.
It was an investigation Republican US Senator, Todd Young said needs to happen.

US Senator Todd Young, a Republican from Indiana   said Tuesday "Charges need to be filed if in fact they confirm all the reporting that legislative investigation have indicated."

Republican US Senate Candidate Mike Braun sent a statement Tuesday about Hill saying

"The allegations against Attorney General Hill are troubling and serious. I support the Governor and bipartisan leadership's calls for his resignation. And I support this being referred to the Inspector General for a full investigation."

About the Hill situation, US Senator Joe Donnelly reiterated his statement "My first and foremost concern has been for the women who are the victims of this outrageous conduct. I had hoped that Attorney General Hill would have used the holiday as an opportunity to take a second look at his situation and do the right thing. That has not occurred. It's time for Attorney General Hill to resign immediately."

About what Senator Young said about charges needing to be filed against hill, Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said investigations don't really work that way.

It's also important for you to note that the Office of the Inspector General is already conducting its own investigation into the allegations.
