Group to raise funds for embattled Indiana AG's defense

July 23, 2018

Supporters of embattled Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill have created a not-for-profit to raise money for his legal defense amid allegations the AG drunkenly groped a state lawmaker and three legislative staffers.

Indiana attorney James Bopp Jr. and former Indiana Court of Appeals Judge Linda Chezem said Monday that the not-for-profit accepts tax-deductible donations for paying Hill's legal bills.

They said Hill has been treated unfairly. Chezem said the allegations against Hill are riddled with "inconsistencies and contradictions."

A confidential legislative memo leaked to the media alleges Hill groped the four women during a party in March at an Indianapolis bar. The party was held to mark the end of the legislative session.

Three of the women later went public, including Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon.

Hill has denied the allegations and rejected calls to resign from Gov. Eric Holcomb, a fellow Republican, and other GOP leaders.
