INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Dozens of protesters rallied for Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill’s resignation amid allegations that he inappropriately touched a state lawmaker and several other women.

The Indianapolis Star reports that about 60 people gathered outside the Indiana Statehouse Saturday. Several lawmakers attended. Protesters carried placards with crossed-out red “equal” signs.

Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb and Statehouse GOP leaders called on Republican Hill to resign Thursday.

An internal legislative memo leaked to media outlets says a lawmaker and three legislative staffers allege that Hill drunkenly groped them in March during a party. Democratic state Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon and Gabrielle McLemore, the Indiana Senate Democrats’ communications director, say they were among victims.

Hill has called the allegations “vicious and false.” He has rebuffed calls to resign.
