Statement on Senate Republican Leader Bill Dix

Iowa Senate News Release
For Immediate Release:  March 12, 2018 

Statement from Senate Democratic Leader Janet Petersen on Senate Republican Leader Bill Dix

“The video posted on Iowa Starting Line is a serious matter for Senate Republican Leader Bill Dix to discuss with his family, his fellow Senate Republicans and Governor Reynolds.

“Because this involves Senator Dix and a lobbyist, there will be questions about the impact of this relationship on legislation.

“This incident follows Senator Dix’s failure to take any responsibility for the $1.75 million settlement that resulted from the sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation against former Senate Republican staffer Kirsten Anderson by Republican Senators and staff.”
