Lawmaker Proposing Bills Targeting Sexual Assault

The legislator who accused Attorney General Curtis Hill of groping her in a downtown bar has introduced a package of bills targeting future sexual misconduct.

Indiana’s inspector general called Hill’s behavior toward Mara Candelaria-Reardon and three legislative staffers “creepy,” but a special prosecutor declined to file charges.

Candelaria-Reardon is proposing a 12-member oversight commission with the power to remove officeholders for ethical or sexual misconduct.
