Curtis Hill (R) is a lawyer who served as Indiana’s attorney general from 2017–21. In that role, he advocated for conservative legal measures, including defending civil forfeiture and backing a measure to require parental consent for minors prior to an abortion. In 2018 multiple women accused Hill of sexual harassment and misconduct, prompting calls for his resignation and a 30-day suspension of his legal license ordered by the Indiana Supreme Court.
While in office, Hill was a member of the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA), a “cash-for-influence” operation that coordinates relationships between Republican attorneys general and corporate interests. RAGA members are closely linked to the Jan. 6 insurrection and GOP attempts to overturn the presidential election. Hill is also a former director of the Rule of Law Defense Fund (RLDF), the 501(c)(4) arm of RAGA.
