Senator Tallian Statement on Curtis Hill’s Disciplinary Recommendation

Senator Tallian Statement on Curtis Hill’s Disciplinary Recommendation

Today, Hearing Officer Myra Selby made her recommendations in the disciplinary proceeding against Attorney General Curtis Hill. In response to that Opinion, Attorney General Candidate and State Senator Karen Tallian issued the following statement.

“Today’s recommendation that Curtis Hill be suspended for 60 days makes it clear once again that Indiana needs a new Attorney General. Former Justice Selby characterized Hill’s behavior as ‘offensive, invasive, damaging and embarrassing’ to the four women involved. She also noted that ‘as Attorney General, he used his state office staff and others to engage in a public campaign to defend himself and intimidate the complainants.’  With those words, she succinctly characterized what Hoosiers have witnessed over the past year. 

I certainly agree with her that his conduct has had a negative impact on the public’s perception of our State. Sexual harassment should never be tolerated, especially from a public official.  

Hill announced his intention to run again almost immediately after the disciplinary hearing. This arrogance reflects his obvious disconnect with public perception of his behavior.

For the first time in history, to the best of our knowledge, we have an AG whose law license is about to be suspended. Mr. Hill needs to be replaced.”
