MARION, Iowa – State Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Marion, the Republican nominee for Congress in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District, released her fifth television ad titled “Nightmare.” The ad will air across the district.

In the Iowa State House, Hinson wrote the law that holds bad teachers accountable for misconduct. House File 637 gives schools 30 days to report abuse allegations to the Board of Educational Examiners. Previously, there was no deadline to report misconduct, and therefore, there wasn’t a mechanism to force schools into following the law. 

“As a mother of two school-aged boys, I know how important it is to make sure our children are learning in a safe environment. Unfortunately, this is just one of the many instances where a child’s innocence was stripped away from them. In the Iowa State House, I built consensus and worked across the aisle to ensure that these predators would be held accountable. In Congress, I will fight every day for our kids to learn in a safe and positive learning environment,” Hinson said in a released statement.

Transcript:

It’s mom’s first nightmare.

My daughter was sexually abused by her teacher at school.

This is my daughter we’re talking about, and I didn’t know.

The entire system just looked the other way.

But Ashley Hinson wrote a law to hold the schools accountable to keep predators away from our kids.

Ashley brought both parties together to do what’s right.

And that’s exactly what we need in Washington.

I’m Ashley Hinson and I approved this message.
