INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is digging in and rejecting calls to resign, saying his name "has been dragged through the gutter" amid allegations that he inappropriately touched a lawmaker and several other women.

The Republican said during a news conference Monday that he stands "falsely and publicly accused of abhorrent behavior." He says he's been unfairly treated and asked for a fair investigation.

Hill declined to take questions but said he "never dreamed this could happen to me."

Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb and GOP legislative leaders called on Hill to resign last week after an internal memo outlining the allegations was leaked to the media.

Hill said Monday that he respects the governor but wished he would have reached out to him "before rushing to judgment."
