INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – As Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill awaits the outcome of a professional misconduct complaint involving his alleged drunken groping of four women, the embattled Republican also faces scrutiny over a string of financial decisions he’s made since taking office.

After he took office in 2017, Hill asked for a raise and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to renovate his Statehouse office. But The Journal Gazette reports Hill doesn’t spend much time at that Indianapolis office.

Instead, he’s used taxpayer dollars on a satellite office in the northern Indiana city of Elkhart, where he lives. No other Indiana state officeholder has a second office elsewhere.
