The video was released on the left-leaning website Iowa Starting Line. He discussed the situation with the Republican Caucus on Monday afternoon and an election to fill the position of Iowa Senate Majority Leader will be held on Wednesday.

"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", said Iowa Senate President Jack Whitver in a statement.

Witver's statement continued by saying Senate Republicans to move their policies forward.

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. "His resignation letter to Iowa Senate President Jack Whitver and Speaker of the Iowa House, Linda Upmeyer in accordance with Iowa Code section 69.4 is attached".

The ex-employee filed a lawsuit several years ago claiming she was sacked after reporting misconduct in the workplace that included the use of sexual language. Dix claimed it was due to poor work performance. "We don't need this ongoing story about where Senate Republican leadership is on these issues dealing with women".

Dix appointed former Ambassador Mary Kramer to consult on steps that needed to take place in the Iowa Senate, and later released an internal review that found that sexual harassment prevention training is inadequate.
