Reynolds Campaign Manager to keep job

Posted: Updated:

 IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The new campaign manager for Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has pleaded guilty to public intoxication after an officer found him urinating outside a suburban Des Moines shopping center last month.
   A criminal complaint shows Phil Valenziano was arrested late June 23 outside the West Glen Town Center in West Des Moines, where he was "caught in the act" by an officer.
   The complaint says the 32-year-old attempted to walk away when officer Cody Jacobsen confronted him but was grabbed and became cooperative. It says Valenziano had slurred speech, poor balance, smelled heavily of alcohol and admitted to being very drunk. He pleaded guilty to a simple misdemeanor.
   The arrest came days after Reynolds and acting Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg announced that Valenziano would manage their campaign for the 2018 election.
