Embattled Indiana Attorney General, Curtis Hill wants lawmakers to increase his budget by about $5 million, despite previously drawing their ire for spending $300,000 on office renovations and a van.
Hill did not appear in person to request the increase from the State Budget Committee, which is gathering input before lawmakers write a new two-year budget. Instead, the Republican sent the Indiana secretary of state, auditor and treasurer…to make the requests.
It didn’t go over well in chambers.
GOP legislative leaders and Gov. Eric Holcomb called on Hill to resign last summer after he was accused of drunkenly groping a lawmaker and two staffers at a bar. He denies the allegations and says he will not resign.
