Iowa Insider: How long will battle between Culver-Senate GOP continue?

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Insider

Gov. Chet Culver has appointed his chief of staff to serve as director
of the state's Department of Human Services after the Iowa Senate
rejected his nominee. Charlie Krogmeier, whom Culver called a "veteran
public servant," was tapped to lead the DHS. With 5,700 employees, DHS
is the state's largest agency and oversees programs that include
Medicaid, welfare, food stamps, child protection and child support
collections. The Iowa Senate refused to confirm Gene Gessow as the
department's director when Republicans withheld their support. They
complained about Gessow's handling of a case in Atalissa where
mentally retarded men were found living in substandard housing.
