Iowa’s former HR director, whose resignation was initially tied to his obsession with slain rapper and hip hop icon Tupac Shakur, is alleging that he was asked to quit after he became a whistleblower. So reports The Des Moines Register.

Jerry Foxhoven resigned June 17 after being asked to step down by Gov. Kim Reynolds. Foxhoven alleges he was asked to leave after he expressed concern over the Department of Human Services continuing to pay the salary of an employee who left that department to work as Reynold’s deputy chief of staff. Foxhoven said he wanted a legal opinion.

“I think that anybody that knows me, and hopefully the governor when she hired me, knew me well enough to know, if you ask me to do something that’s illegal or wrong, I’m not going to do it,” Foxhoven said. Reynolds noted that “Foxhoven never raised concerns with me or my staff about the salary agreements in question, and he never asked my staff for a legal opinion or said he would be reaching out to the Attorney General’s office for one... I would never ask anyone to do something they thought was illegal." 

Foxhoven had created a social media buzz after it was reported that he was asked to resign tied to his Shakur obsession. Both Foxhoven and the governor’s office denied this at the time.
