Dix did not comment on the circumstances surrounding his resignation as majority leader and as state senator, though Republican Senate President Jack Whitver alluded to the website's allegations in a statement.

The woman was not identified by Starting Line aside from stating she was 'a lobbyist for various municipality groups'. But his office issued a statement confirming Dix's departure. "I don't know all of the facts. I'm extremely disappointed with what I'm hearing, but until I have an opportunity to hear the story, I'm not going to comment".
