Congressman Steve King is being accused of breaking the rules and sneaking notes into his debate with Christie Vilsack this week.

But a King spokesman says it’s not a case of cheating, but of poor hygiene.

Jimmy Centers tells “Politico” that Congressman King often writes reminders on his hand during the day, saying, “If he doesn`t wash his hands good enough, he probably has notes from yesterday.”
