B.H. County V.A. Director keeps job


WATERLOO (KWWL) - The Black Hawk County Veterans Affairs Commission has voted to keep its director, despite allegations of nude images on his office computer.

The commission voted during a closed session on Thursday against firing Bennie Spain, who has held the job for 25 years.

Commission Chairman Rickie Cox declined to give specifics of the discussions.

Spain strongly denies he ever downloaded or saw any of the images reportedly found on his computer, which was seized last November. His computer had been repaired by other individuals.

Spain said he was not in the office when some of the images allegedly were downloaded, which he said could be verified by the building's security system.
