Iowa Independent: Atalissa causes tempers to flare in governor's office
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent
Rumors of Gov. Chet Culver's temper are nothing new, but according to Cityview gossip columnist Civic Skinny, the recent discovery of worker abuse at Henry's Turkey Service in Atalissa has pushed that temper into overdrive. The newspaper received an e-mail from "a friend under the Golden Dome" detailing a testy exchange between Culver and U.S Sen. Tom Harkin. Apparently Culver was upset at Harkin's comments at last week's hearing of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee wondering how state inspectors had allowed the Atalissa situation "to go on year after year after year."
