Courtside seats at Iowa State games are a perk for lawmakers

Tickets to Iowa State men's basketball games were hard to land for Cyclones' fans this year, but they were easier for one group: legislators being entertained by University President Steven Leath.

Ten lawmakers accepted invitations to sit with Leath courtside at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, including House Speaker Linda Upmeyer and education appropriations subcommittee chairman Rep. Cecil Dolecheck, a review by The Associated Press shows. While legislators paid a face value for their tickets ranging from $25 to $50, comparable seats are usually only available to donors or cost far more through ticket brokers.
