Iowa’s Department of Inspections and Appeals has a new head of its Investigations Division. Bob Galbraith served for eight years as an assistant attorney general in Iowa’s consumer advocate’s office. There, his specialty was leaking underground tanks and the management of a fund to clean them up. In the Inspections and Appeals department, he’s headed up voting since 1999, administering election laws and supervising elections in all of Iowa’s 99 counties. Now Galbraith takes on a big new job with Investigations, tracking down fraud in welfare and food stamp programs and making cheaters pay it back. His most high-profile unit may be the one that looks into allegations of abuse or neglect of residents in the state’s long-term care facilities.
