The top leader in the Iowa Senate has resigned after a video posted on a liberal news website purportedly showed him kissing a statehouse lobbyist.

Senate Republicans released a statement Monday announcing that Majority Leader Bill Dix was resigning at 2 p.m. Monday from his leadership post and as a state senator.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds had this reaction:

OC……what I’m hearing. :05

Republican State Senator Charles Schneider of West Des Moines was in the private meeting where Dix announced he was resigning:

OC………on that job. ;13

Schneider and other Senators say they are angry about Dix’s apparent infidelity.

Dix is married with three children and he wrote a one sentence letter of resignation.

Democratic Senate Minority leader Janet Peterson says she wasn’t surprised:

OC….. to use it. :04

Republicans in the GOP-controlled chamber plan to elect a new majority leader on Wednesday.

The incident caps a swift response from Republicans after the liberal website “Iowa Starting Line” published video and photos showing Dix and a woman together at a bar.

The video shows the two kiss.

The website says the incident was recorded March 1st.
