Senator and Governor Spar Regarding Empty Seat During Legislative Hearing
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Things got personal and political on Monday at the Iowa Statehouse in regards to the Democratic-led investigation into the Department of Human Services. State Senator Matt McCoy, a Des Moines Democrat, is the ranking member on the government oversight committee. He has held hearings every Monday for the past month, following two highly-publicized cases of alleged abuse of Iowa teens at the hands of their adoptive families.
