APNewsBreak: After affair, official got gaming job

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An assistant director of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation was disciplined for violating department policies by having a personal relationship with a subordinate employee, but moved to a high-profile job months later.

A disciplinary notice shows David Jobes was given a last-chance warning in February after superiors learned of the relationship. It says Jobes discredited the department by having a relationship with an employee within his chain of command and failing to tell his supervisor.

The document was obtained by The Associated Press through the public records law. The subordinate employee was not identified in the notice.

In May, Jobes was transferred to gaming operations, assuming responsibility for overseeing the integrity of Iowa’s casinos and other forms of gambling.

Jobes declined comment.
