Iowa state senator Bill Dix caught kissing lobbyist in bar

In the final moments of the short clip, the short haired, blonde woman leaned in and gave Dix a kiss on the lips.

Sen. Bill Dix, the leader of Iowa's GOP-controlled state Senate, abruptly announced his resignation effective immediately after meeting with Republican colleagues around 1 p.m.

"I believe he made the right decision for himself and for his district, but most importantly, I believe he made the decision in the best interest of his family", the statement read.

A married Republican senate leader with questionable tenure has resigned after video emerged showing him 'making out' with a woman in a bar.

Majority Leader Bill Dix submitted a one-sentence resignation letter several hours after the "scandalous" video release. Charles Schneider, R-West Des Moines, filled in for Dix at the start of Monday's session and the majority leader did not make any public comments during the day's proceedings.

A prominent politician in the USA state of Iowa has resigned after he was caught appearing to kiss a lobbyist in a bar down the road from the State Capitol. She did not respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

Told Robert L. Palmer, director of government affairs and legislative counsel for the organization in an email to AP, 'We are taking what we believe are appropriate actions, but because this is a personnel matter we can not comment further'. She said she is disappointed in what she is hearing. Iowans hold their elected officials to a high standard, and as elected officials, we have an obligation to lead'.

Typically a lawmaker in a leadership position such as Dix could have undue influence over a lobbyist who might seek the leader's support for a bill. Over the summer, Iowa Senate Republicans lost a harassment lawsuit filed against them by former communications director Kirsten Anderson to the tune of $2.2 Million.

Katie Ervin Carlson, an attorney in Iowa who handles sexual harassment and employee rights lawsuits, told the website prior to Dix's resignation that the sexual harassment training given to legislators and staffers after the settlement was awarded to the former GOP staffer last September apparently didn't work.

He is also the father of three kids.

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

Shortly after, Dix drew criticism for backtracking from a joint announcement with the Iowa House Republicans that both chambers would hire a human resources director who would as, part of the position's duties, handle sexual harassment complaints.
