MUSCATINE, Iowa (KWQC) – The Muscatine City Administrator, Gregg Mandsager, filed a lawsuit against Mayor Diana Broderson three days after she won re-election.

According to Iowa Courts online, Mandsager’s attorney filed the lawsuit on Friday.

Last month Mandsager announced he would be suing Broderson and the city for defamation.

In a letter, he wrote, “Broderson has lied about me on numerous occasions.”

A draft of the lawsuit listed more than two dozen examples of times Mandsager says Broderson lied about him.
