A House Republican is using rumblings of foul play on Friday’s surprisingly positive jobs report to push a bill he says would more accurately capture the state of the nation’s employment.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) did not directly suggest that the report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), which showed unemployment dipping below 8 percent one month before the presidential election, is proof of political tinkering. Rather, he contended the controversy over the report “raises interest” in how the nation’s unemployment rate is calculated, and suggested his approach might be more accurate.

“The latest unemployment report raises interest in both the method for calculation, the accuracy of the process for determining unemployment and the correlation to coinciding data,” he wrote in a letter to House Education and Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-Minn.).
