A former Iowa DNR Director says he has been questioned by investigators about sexual harassment allegations. 

Seventy five-year-old Roger Lande, a former Iowa Department of Natural Resources Director, says state human resources investigators have questioned him about comments he made to women working under him at the DNR. 

Lande says he explained his comments to the investigators but never heard if the investigation was closed. 

Lande resigned in May after serving as director for just 16 months.  However, he denies that sexual harassment allegations had anything to do with his resignation.
