Sinclair never felt uncomfortable in caucus

Steve Woodhouse

Des Moines — Des Moines media this week have been reporting on the dismissal of former Senate Republican Communications Director Kristen Anderson. Anderson is alleging sexual harassment led to this, and Republicans contend that she was dismissed due to her performance. Sen. Amy Sinclair is a female Republican Senator, and says she has never felt uncomfortable around her male counterparts. 

When asked what she thought of Anderson's performance, Sinclair could not give an opinion. Her clerk has a journalism background and handled her communications. Sinclair's interaction with Anderson was limited, so the Senator could not speak to Anderson's job performance.
