ICYMI: Editorial: Reynolds in “Real Political Peril” Following Mishandling of Sexual Harassment Related-Firing

Quad-City Times: “Gov. Kim Reynolds will seemingly stop at nothing to cloak the details surrounding the recent firing of a top aide and political ally”

The bad news continues for Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds in the wake of her Administration’s bungling of the sexual harassment-related firing of her friend and ally Dave Jamison. Today, the Quad-City Times took her to task in a scathing editorial about the situation, writing, “the specifics of Reynolds’ March sacking of Iowa Finance Authority Director David Jamison could pose real political peril for Iowa’s Republican governor.”

Gov. Kim Reynolds will seemingly stop at nothing to cloak the details surrounding the recent firing of a top aide and political ally. And she’s flouting state Open Records Law to do it.

Make no mistake, the specifics of Reynolds’ March sacking of Iowa Finance Authority Director David Jamison could pose real political peril for Iowa’s Republican governor. The available facts suggest the Reynolds administration received a “credible” complaint that Jamison sexually harassed his employees. Reynolds showed Jamison the door the following day. This narrative works well for the Reynolds administration. Apparently, anything beyond the administration’s line isn’t so flattering.
