Tallian Statement on Curtis Hill Suspension

Tallian Statement on Curtis Hill Suspension

Democratic Candidate for Indiana Attorney General State Senator Karen Tallian released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to suspend Attorney General Curtis Hill’s law license.

“Today, the Indiana Supreme Court released its decision on Attorney General Curtis Hill’s disciplinary proceeding. The bottom line is that Mr. Hill will be suspended for 30 days, with an automatic reinstatement. This means that, like other officers who have been similarly disciplined, Attorney General Hill will “sit out” for 30 days, and then resume his duties. It also means that he will be able to seek the Republican Party’s nomination to be the Attorney General candidate on the November ballot. 

“This needs to end – and I can make that happen. Now it is even more imperative that Indiana women, and Indiana men who support them, must say No. Now, more than ever, we need a  strong woman to be the nominee for Attorney General. Hill’s infamous behavior was unacceptable, and we need to send a clear message that sexual harassment and battery are never okay.

“I have been on the front lines fighting these issues for 15 years. I have spoken up for women, the right to choose ,the LGBTQ+ community, reform of marijuana laws and protecting our health care – all positions that Curtis Hill and the right wing fight against.

“His behavior is bad, but his policy positions are worse.”
