Democratic senate leader calls for Hill to quit

 (AP) — The minority leader of the Indiana Senate has joined a number of Democrats calling on Attorney General Curtis Hill to resign over claims that he groped a state lawmaker and three staffers at an Indianapolis bar.

The Republican denies the claims. But Anderson Sen. Tim Lanane says an investigation was taken seriously and the accusations are credible.

He called Hill’s alleged behavior “totally reprehensible” and said that the office of attorney general calls for “unquestionable character.”

Lanane said Hill can no longer “carry out his role and should resign.”
