Iowa Senate GOP Leader Whitver, former ISU athlete, comments on DCI probe of sports betting among UI, ISU aethletes

The Republican leader in the Iowa Senate says legislators are monitoring what’s unfolding from the state investigation of sports bets placed by male athletes at Iowa and Iowa State. Senate Majority Leader Jack Whitver says facts will be revealed as the civil lawsuits filed by the targeted athletes make their way through the court system.

Whitver was an Iowa State wide receiver — a starter for three seasons. That was two decades ago. He’s currently in his fourth term in the Iowa Senate and, as majority leader, brings up bills for debate.

Whitver made his comments this weekend on “Iowa Press” on Iowa P-B-S.
