Reporter Dauben not mistaken after all about Deuell grade

Apparently Ellis County Press reporter Joey Dauben didn’t mistakenly report Sen. Deuell was given a F grade by AFP  for his voting record, after all. It just looked that way to me.

Dauben wrote that Deuell’s grade was “on par” with several Democrats. In the same paragraph that he mentioned Sen. Bob’s name, he also mentioned Democrat Royse West, who received an F grade. Since that was the only grade mentioned in the story, it was very easy to misunderstand, but Dauben did not mistakenly report Deuell had an F.

According to the reporter, he actually ran a front page story in the Ellis County Press Dec. 24, showing that Sen. Deuell received a C grade.

Ellis County reporter mistakenly claims Deuell given F grade for voting record

Looks like Ellis County Press reporter Joey Dauben owes State Sen. Bob Deuell a big apology and explanation!

Listing himself as a supporter on Facebook of Senate challenger Sharon Russell, Dauben has mistakenly claimed that Sen. Bob Deuell received an “F” grade from Americans For Prosperity for his voting record, when the truth is that he actually received a “C.”

AFP says they are committed to strengthening our constitutional government spending limits and giving taxpayers greater control over how much government we want and are willing to pay for.

Wonder why Dauben did that? Maybe he didn’t think anyone (like me) would check out the facts!

Uh Oh!
