Recent statements involving Republican Governors Association

Under Mary Burke’s leadership, Commerce Department business-incentive programs had "major shortcomings" and "40 percent of jobs...didn’t materialize."

"(Mary) Burke was a senior member of the Doyle administration that left Wisconsin with 130,000 fewer jobs."

"Barbara Buono by the numbers: As a Trenton politician, she voted to raise taxes 154 times. Under her, property taxes up 70 percent. Backed a 16 percent sales tax increase. Utilities, nursing homes, cell phones, parking lots, lottery wins, gyms – She taxed them all. Architect of Corzine’s budget, she drove New Jersey $2 billion into debt. Barbara Buono by the numbers: taking New Jersey backwards."

Accuses Ed FitzGerald of "pay-to-play and corruption politics."

Recent stories featuring Republican Governors Association

Truth-O-Meter travels back in time:

AJC PolitiFact Georgia went back in history last week on its search for the truth. Way back.

Like a century ago -- the dawn of our nation's dependence on fossil fuel. That's when wooden pipelines were used to transport natural gas. We found out whether they're still in use today.

And two decades ago, when Georgians debated whether to institute the lottery that now funds the popular HOPE Scholarship for college-bound high schoolers. Did former Gov. Roy Barnes, who's trying to reclaim his seat, oppose the scholarship?

The Truth-O-Meter's other jaunts into the past had to do with more recent history. Think five years ago, when the state argued over whether to toughen its voter ID laws. Or the turn of the millennium, when Barnes, a Democrat, was governor. Republicans claimed he was weak on education and jobs back then.

It's also when a DeKalb County school board member said she started handing over to the county what totaled $30,000 in unused travel money. Did she?

This is how we ruled.

Stakes high for AJC PolitiFact Georgia :

The stakes were high for AJC PolitiFact Georgia last week.

Two U.S. senators and a Clayton County official made claims on one of this state's hottest topics: jobs.

The White House sparred with U.S. House Republican leader John Boehner over tax cuts that could have a major impact on the struggling economy. Republican governors tried to thwart the efforts of Democrat Roy Barnes to reclaim the governor's seat.

And a candidate for agriculture commissioner bet about $1 billion in economic benefit would rain down if we let Georgians gamble on ponies.

Here's a roundup of this week's rulings:
