3rd woman publicly alleges Indiana attorney general groping

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A Republican staffer has come forward to publicly accuse Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill of groping her at a party, the third woman to do so.

Niki DaSilva is a legislative assistant for the Indiana Senate Republican Caucus. She says in her account in The Indianapolis Star that Hill slid his hand down her back and when she tried to push it away he grabbed her hand and moved both their hands over her buttocks, lingering there before letting go.

DaSilva says she was "taken aback" by what happened March 15 at an Indianapolis bar.

Democratic state Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon and Gabrielle McLemore, a spokeswoman for the Indiana Senate Democrats, last week accused Hill, a Republican, of inappropriately touching them at the party.

Hill has denied the allegations.
