The former head of the Iowa Department of Human Services says he was asked to resign his position after refusing a request from Governor Kim Reynolds.   Jerry Foxhoven says the governor asked him to continue paying the salary of a woman moving from his department to the governor's office.

Foxhoven says he didn’t approve paying the salary of Elizabeth Matney, because he believed she was already being paid by the state for her new position. Foxhoven says he was fired two days after that decision.
