FILE - In this April 2, 2010 file photo is former Iowa congressional candidate Jim Gibbons in Des Moines, Iowa. Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz, a Republican running for Congress as a budget-cutting conservative, decided in May 2012 to cut the office's chief deputy position held for 17 months by Gibbons. But rather than let Gibbons go within weeks as he did four career workers laid that summer, Schultz took unusual steps that kept his political appointee on the payroll through the end of the year.
