DAGA Statement on Indiana Supreme Court Decision Regarding Embattled AG Curtis Hill
May 18, 2020
AG Curtis Hill is Currently Serving a 30-Day Law License Suspension Due to Sexual Misconduct Allegations
WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) released the following statement from Executive Director Sean Rankin regarding the decision by the Indiana State Supreme Court to allow incumbent Republican Attorney General Curtis Hill to remain in office following his 30-day law license suspension for “acts of misdemeanor battery” that “[violate] Indiana professional conduct rules” that stem from credible accusations of sexual misconduct. The decision today is in response to the Republican Governor’s request for additional guidance from Indiana’s State Supreme Court about whether someone with a suspended law license still met the requirements to serve as Indiana Attorney General.
Statement from Sean Rankin, Executive Director of the Democratic Attorneys General Association:
“The Indiana Republican Party and the Republican Attorneys General Association own this failure of leadership. Republicans have remained silent for two years about the sexual misconduct charges and have continued to financially back AG Hill including recently. DAGA has made Indiana a priority in this election year, and by Election Day, voters will remember Curtis Hill’s name for all the wrong reasons and remember the Indiana GOP’s failure to take real action.”
