INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s governor is endorsing a proposal that could force the state's attorney general from office over allegations that he drunkenly groped four women.

Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb said Thursday that he supports a bill endorsed by the Indiana House that would prohibit anyone whose law license has been suspended for at least 30 days from serving as attorney general.

Republican Attorney General Curtis Hill is awaiting the state Supreme Court's decision on a recommendation that he face a minimum 60-day suspension.
