Governor Says Victims Gave ‘Credible Evidence’ That Agency Head Sexually Harassed Them
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds wouldn't divulge specifics Monday morning, but she said state employees came forward Friday night with "credible evidence" that Iowa Finance Authority Director David Jamison sexually harassed them. That is why she fired him. Reynolds said the employees -- she didn't say how many of Jamison's staff came forward with the claims -- didn't report their harassment claims to Jamison, management in the IFA or anyone else in human resources. Instead they came forward Friday night to Reynolds' Chief of Staff Jake Ketzner.
