Incorrect PO Action History when PO is rejected

Purchase Order which has no funds is sent to approval. First PO gets approved then forwarded to final approver who has Budgetary Control Group profile on his name. First final approver approves PO, then rejects PO on second attempt when he receives "Unable to Reserve" Notification. Status becomes rejected but in Action Histroy it does not show that first approver first time approved before forwarded to final Approver.
