Mark Kennedy caught in "CPA-gate"

Republican Mark Kennedy's campaign has a new problem. Not only are polls showing him behind Democrat Amy Klobuchar in Minnesota's U.S. Senate race, but now he's been caught using the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) designation in violation of an agreement he signed last December with the Minnesota Board of Accountancy.

Kennedy's latest television campaign ad says that he were elected, he would be the only CPA in the U.S. Senate. That appears to directly contradict the affidavit he signed saying he would "not use the CPA designation in a way that may lead a person to believe I hold an active certificate in Minnesota."

Today when asked about how long his CPA license had been inactive, Kennedy said "I'd have to go back and look for you."

Kennedy touted his CPA credentials at the Minnesota GOP convention in June saying "As a CPA, I can assure you, there is no good news in the tax code."

In A New Ad, Kennedy Said “I’d be [. . .] the only CPA in the Senate.” In his latest television ad, Kennedy said, “I’d be one of the few businesspeople, and the only CPA in the Senate. And I think you need to just take one look at the budget to know, we need at least one CPA in the Senate.”
