Iowa Secretary of State: Nepotism, huh, what’s that?

Iowa Secretary of State Matt “Not the Sharpest Tool in the Shed” Schultz recently refunded the money his office paid to his brother after hiring his bro to work as an intern.  He didn’t realize that would constitute nepotism.  Or he didn’t realize what nepotism is.  Or he is just really dumb.  This guy is our State Secretary of State?

Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz said Thursday that he inadvertently broke the state’s nepotism law by giving a temporary job to his college-aged brother and that he has paid back all of the salary his brother received.

Schultz told the Associated Press he was unfamiliar with the details of a law that says state officials generally cannot hire their relatives when he gave the $10-per-hour job to his brother, Andrew Schultz, in January.

This guy is our State Secretary of State?  Really?
