INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Activists are planning a weekend march to call for Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill to resign amid allegations that he inappropriately touched a state lawmaker and three other women.
Organizers say in a Facebook post that Saturday's march will begin at the Indiana Statehouse.
Their post says legislative leaders should have been transparent about their investigation into Hill and says that "Politically powerful men are protecting Attorney General Hill."
An internal legislative memo leaked to media outlets says that a lawmaker and three legislative staffers alleged that Hill, a Republican, drunkenly groped them in March during a party on the final night of Indiana's legislative session.
Hill has said he has no plans to resign. He's called an inquiry into the matter a "prejudicial investigation that is deeply troubling."
