Gov. Eric Holcomb says he had no choice but to call for Attorney General Curtis Hill’s resignation.

That’s because Holcomb says he believes the four women who’ve accused Hill of groping them at a party in March.

“I felt I was left with no other option if I truly believe in a zero-percent tolerance for sexual harassment,” Holcomb says.

Hill’s lawyers Wednesday said Holcomb’s call for resignation was “pure hysteria.” The governor shrugged off those comments.

“I think I have a sense of humor, but I wouldn’t describe myself as hysterical,” Holcomb says.

Holcomb says he first heard rumors about Hill’s alleged conduct in March but didn’t find out about the specific accusations until they were reported in the press earlier this month.
