IBLC joins call for Indiana Attorney General Hill to resign
INDIANAPOLIS – State Rep. Cherrish Pryor (D-Indianapolis), chair of the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus (IBLC), today issued the following statement on behalf of the group:
“Today, we join the clarion call insisting that our Attorney General resign his office. This is the top law enforcement official in our state, and we cannot have someone in that position whom people cannot trust.
“We want our staff and women legislators to feel comfortable in the Statehouse. They should not be subjected to the kind of unacceptable behavior that has been described in recent days.
“Two IBLC members have served on staff at the Indiana House. The things that were learned helped encourage us to pursue careers in public service.
“We realize that these events can easily discourage women from pursuing a career in politics. It took a lot of courage for those four women to make this report. They should be commended for speaking out and deserve all of our support.
“There is only one clear course of action here. The Attorney General must do the right thing for himself and the women involved. He must apologize for his conduct, and resign his office. No other outcome is acceptable.”
