IOWA  —  Governor Reynolds is ordering an independent review of the Iowa Finance Authority in the wake of the firing of its director for alleged sexual harassment.

Late Friday afternoon, Reynolds appointed Des Moines attorney Mark Weinhardt to lead the investigation.

“Since the victims reported these horrible allegations, their safety and privacy have been my top priority,” said the governor in a statement. “Now that one of the victims has made the decision to release the specific details of the harassment, I am ordering an independent review of David Jamison’s conduct and what was known about it.”

In March, David Jamison was fired as the agency’s director after the governor received a letter documenting years of alleged sexual harassment by Jamison. That letter was just released to the media on Thursday.
