Branstad: Staff Knew Nothing About Settlements

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad says his staff knew nothing of settlement agreements with state workers that included clauses requiring secrecy before late March when reports surfaced in the media. And he says they didn't know payments had been made for that secrecy.

Branstad is responding to last week's Senate Government Oversight Committee hearing in which former Department of Administrative Services attorney Ryan Lamb said he told the governor's chief of staff documents might exist showing money was negotiated for secrecy.

Branstad says Chief of Staff Matt Hinch met with Lamb twice and both times Lamb insisted there were no payments made for promises of secrecy.

Lamb later called Hinch after recalling there could be an email showing a payment was offered.

It later surfaced, creating questions around who knew about secret settlements.
