Video appears to show Iowa Senate leader kissing lobbyist at bar

The House Chambers in the Iowa Capitol Building in Des Moines on Wednesday Mar. 7 2018

Majority Leader Bill Dix submitted a one-sentence resignation letter several hours after the liberal website Iowa Starting Line published its report about the Shell Rock Republican today. The video shows the two kiss.

The woman in the video, Lindsey McCune, is a lobbyist representing smaller cities within the state of Iowa.

The political website said the incident was recorded March 1.

A self-described "family values" conservative has resigned from the Iowa state legislature after he was caught on video kissing a lobbyist who is not his wife.

Whitver said Iowa Senate Republicans would hold an election for Iowa Senate Majority Leader on Wednesday, March 14.

Senate President Jack Whitver said he believed Dix "made the right decision" to step down after the video surfaced online.

Robert L. Palmer, director of government affairs and legislative counsel for the organization, said in an email to the Associated Press: "We are taking what we believe are appropriate actions, but because this is a personnel matter we can not comment further". "Right now, I just found out about it".

Witver's statement continued by saying Senate Republicans to move their policies forward. She said she is disappointed in what she is hearing.

Reynolds says she has asked to meet with Dix. Over the summer, Iowa Senate Republicans lost a harassment lawsuit filed against them by former communications director Kirsten Anderson to the tune of $2.2 Million.

Previous year she was awarded a $2.1 million settlement for wrongful dismissal. Several hours after filing that complaint she was sacked.

Dix has maintained the ex-staffer was sacked for poor performance. "We don't need this ongoing story about where Senate Republican leadership is on these issues dealing with women".

Legislative leaders in the Republican-controlled Iowa House have not commented on Dix, a third generation farmer who had been a top Republican in the Senate for several years.

Democrats in the Iowa Senate argue that a proposed campus free speech bill would create "legalized" discrimination and serve to limit, rather than encourage, free speech.

"I not only sponsored and voted for this amendment, but I was a leader who helped shepard (sic) this amendment through the Iowa House", Dix boasted in 2006, when he ran unsuccessfully for Iowa's 1st Congressional District seat.
