When Gov. Kim Reynolds fired Iowa Finance Authority director David Jamison for sexual harassment in the workplace, she said:
“I can’t pass a law that says everybody treats everybody with respect. But I can lead and I can set an expectation, and that is what I did.”

Iowa needs a governor who has a zero-tolerance policy on hatred and bigotry.
