Iowa Republicans elect new Senate Majority Leader”

Dix, a Republican from Shell Rock, resigned his Iowa Senate seat and the GOP majority leader on Monday, following release of a video online in which he appears to be kissing a lobbyist at a Des Moines bar.

The Iowa Senate Republicans chose Senator Charles Schneider, a West Des Moines attorney, to replace Whitver as Senate President. The former Iowa State University football player also served as an assistant coach with the Iowa Barnstormers Arena League football team from 2008 to 2011.

According to Governor Reynolds, Senator Amy Sinclair (R-Allerton) is the new Majority Whip and Senator Jake Chapman (R-Adel) is the new Assistant Majority Leader. Republicans haven't indicated what, if any, legislative rules should be updated to address such behavior.
