Advocates rally for Curtis Hill resignation
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Crowds of advocates gathered at the Statehouse today demanding Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill resign. The rally happened after four women accused Hill of sexual harassment. Rally organizers and attendees believe the sexual harassment accusations against the former Elkhart County Prosecutor.
Melissa Sfura lives in Indianapolis, but says she was born in South Bend and has family in the area. “These women need to be protected, they need to be believed, and they need their justice,” Sfura said.
Attendees say that four women coming forward is more than a coincidence. They now want hill held accountable for his alleged actions. “When you have a person who is supposed to be the top law enforcer in the, in the state. That doesn’t posh very well,” Annette Gross said as she attended the rally.
The #MeToo movement continues to empower sexual assault survivors to come forward. Lyle Janney attended the movement with his family. “I’ve been waiting for this. It’s been building for some time, women are getting stronger and feeling their power,” he said.
Speakers at the rally insist the cultural norms of blaming the victims must change. “These women have a complaint. Their complaint deserves to be heard. He deserves due process. But at the end of the day he should not be the attorney general during this process and during this investigation,” said Janney.
Not everyone believes Hill should step down. Hill has denied all allegations and says he has no plans to resign.
