State lawmaker details groping incident by AG Curtis Hill


INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill appears to be digging in amid calls for his resignation.

Hill was accused of groping numerous women at a party following the end of the General Assembly this spring.

He has said the allegations are vicious and false and that at no time did he grab or touch anyone inappropriately.

Two of the women involved in the investigation went public yesterday.

State Representative Mara Candelaria Reardon, a twelve year veteran of the legislature, told the The Times of Northwest Indiana that Hill put his hand on her back and slid it down to her buttocks and grabbed it. She told him to back off and walked away.

She said later than night Hill approached her again and put his hand on her back, and she recoiled at his touch.

She went to legislative leaders after learning Hill had groped four other legislative staffers that night.
