The Iowa Campaign Ethics Board heard an ethics complaint Thursday against Iowa Board of Regents member Bruce Rastetter.
The complaint, filed by Iowa CCI, claimed after Rastetter became a regent he influenced Iowa State University to partner with a company in which he invested in to farm land in Tanzania.
The complaint also accused Rastetter of filing a false financial disclosure statement with the state. He filed new disclosure statement earlier this week on the Tanzania farming project.
After meeting Thursday afternoon, the board dismissed the ethics complaint.
