Rep. Dale Kooyenga: Politifact Tried to Damage My Credibility

MacIver News Service | September 27, 2013

[Madison, Wisc…] Rep. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) spoke with the MacIver News Service recently to discuss the “Mostly False” rating he received from Poltifact in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Kooyenga made a statement previously that they have been using GAAP accounting in the Capitol for the past two years, without reference to budget deficits or surpluses. Reporter Dave Umhoefer gave Kooyenga a mostly false because a GAAP deficit still exists in the state budget. Kooyenga told MNS that he feels this was meant to “damage his credibility.”
