Whitver said that an election to replace Dix as majority leader will happen Wednesday.

Footage shows the 55 year old conservative lawmaker in an "intimate" repose with the mystery blonde woman, before the woman and married politician kiss on the lips.

Neither Dix nor the lobbyist responded to requests for comment from The Associated Press.

"With what little I know, I'm certainly disappointed in what I'm hearing", said Reynolds.

The woman in the video, Lindsey McCune, is a lobbyist representing smaller cities within the state of Iowa.

Dix did not comment on the circumstances surrounding his resignation as majority leader and as state senator, though Republican Senate President Jack Whitver alluded to the website's allegations in a statement.

The Iowa Legislature has since hired a human resources director to oversee harassment complaints at the state Capitol. Charles Schneider, R-West Des Moines, filled in for Dix at the start of Monday's session and the majority leader did not make any public comments during the day's proceedings.

"Because this involves Senator Dix and a lobbyist, there will be questions about the impact of this relationship on legislation", she said in a statement.

Senate File 2344 was introduced in the wake of an incident at the University of Iowa, where a university recognized student group called Business Leaders in Christ (BLinC) was stripped of its recognized status after a student had accused BLinC of denying him a leadership position because he is "openly gay".

"Iowans hold their elected officials to a high standard, and as elected officials, we have an obligation to lead", she said. A jury previous year found in her favor, and the state agreed to pay out $1.75 million in exchange for it not appealing the verdict. Dix claimed it was due to poor work performance.

"I not only sponsored and voted for this amendment, but I was a leader who helped shepard (sic) this amendment through the Iowa House", Dix boasted in 2006, when he ran unsuccessfully for Iowa's 1st Congressional District seat.
