CEDAR RAPIDS — It’s not for the title or prestige that Michael Richards is running for lieutenant governor. Getting elected is, of course, the goal, but the semiretired Cedar Rapids businessman says his campaign with Iowa Party gubernatorial candidate Jonathan Narcisse has two goals they can achieve win or lose.
A Texas woman filed an amended federal lawsuit earlier this week, claiming she was sexually harassed and retaliated against while working for CRST Van Expedited, the Cedar Rapids trucking company that just settled a sexual harassment suit last year.
