A fire and a reversal involving Iowa GOP

First, there was a fire yesterday in the dumpster outside the Republican Party of Iowa’s headquarters. Incendiary memos?  Improperly discarded smoking materials?  A prankster?

Second, Republican Party of Iowa chairman Stewart Iverson is a former legislator and earlier this week it was announced he would be accepting another job, as a staff person in the office of Senate Republican Leader Ron Wieck.  For those of you who’ve been around Iowa politics, you know that Iverson held the job of Senate Republican Leader until he was oustead in the fall of 2006.  Iverson then chose not to seek reelection.  Well, today it’s been announced that Iverson will not be working in Wieck’s office as a paid staffer.
