Senate Majority Leader resigns after leaked video revealed alleged affair with Lobbyist

Senate G-O-P Leader Bill Dix of Shell Rock, who is married, resigned Monday afternoon - just hours after images posted on the Iowa Starting Line website showed Dix and a female lobbyist in a Des Moines bar, appearing to kiss.

Iowa Starting Line reported that the patron observed Dix "flirting with and occasionally kissing a younger woman".

State Senate Majority Leader Bill Dix, R-Janesville, announced his resignation through a statement from Senate President Jack Whitver, R-Ankeny, following a meeting of the Republican caucus on Monday.

Footage shows the 55 year old conservative lawmaker in an "intimate" repose with the mystery blonde woman, before the woman and married politician kiss on the lips. The hook-up reportedly occurred on March 1 at the Waveland Tap, a watering hole about five miles from the Des Moines State Capitol.

The lobbyist in the video, Lindsey McCune, did not respond to messages by phone and text from The Cedar Rapids Gazette.

Robert L. Palmer, director of government affairs and legislative counsel said in an email: "We are taking what we believe are appropriate actions, but because this is a personnel matter we can not comment further".

Earlier Monday, before Dix's resignation, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) told reporters that she was disappointed by the allegations and said she had planned to meet with him.

Dix flip-flopped on whether the Senate would seek outside help handling the hostile workplace environment that led to a jury awarding that former staffer $2.2 million in damages last July. Tracy Freese, a Democrat from Stout in Grundy County, had declared to run for the Senate District 25 seat, which covers Grundy, Hardin, Butler and Story counties. An internal report later revealed senators made "sexually suggestive comments" or discussed "sexual preferences" on the chamber floor in recent years, and staff members in the Republican Senate office were unlikely to report misconduct because of fear of retaliation.

Bill Dix talks about the Senate Republicans' efforts to address sexual harassment in their caucus on November 14.
