I am surprised whenever I see Republican State Senator Bill Dix quoted in your paper. Why is he still in the Iowa Senate, and why is he still in leadership?
The woman in the Senate Republican office who expressed concerns to him about the sexual harassment of women in the office and on the senate floor was fired by Dix. She reports intolerable conditions, and his instinct is to fire her?! What a disgusting reaction!
Dix might not have been harassing women, but he was in charge, and he allowed it. The harassment in that Republican office was so egregious that a court awarded her $1.75 million, and the Republicans expect the Iowa taxpayers to pay. We should not have to pay!
Let those who are unable to act like decent human beings pay the bill and give us their names. Dix should be gone.
