Former film office director speaks out

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The former head of the Iowa Film Office doesn't deny making mistakes at the job, but says he isn't the only one to blame.

In an interview with the Des Moines Register Tom Wheeler says legislators, revenue officials and others should share the responsibility.

The film office has been accused of mismanagement and is the focus of a state investigation.

Wheeler says much of the questioned activity stemmed from a broad tax-credits law. He also says two years of his e-mails will prove he was told by the state department of revenue to approve unusual expenses as tax breaks.
