A former Georgia ethics commission computer specialist says he altered and removed dozens of documents in a case involving the governor. The documents came from the file for the investigation into complaints accusing Gov. Nathan Deal of misusing campaign funds in the 2010 election.
Two sitting congressmen have the largest campaign accounts less than a year before the Republican U.S. Senate primary. But it's Rep. Jack Kingston who has set the pace for new fundraising in the first six months of the year.
Rep. Jack Kingston hasn't said he's running for the U.S. Senate, but he's raising money as if he plans to ask Georgia voters for a promotion. The Savannah Republican raised $842,000 in the first three months of 2013, according to campaign filings with the Federal Election Commission.
Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers has repaid $8,500 to his campaign account amid questions over how he paid for publications sent to residents in his district. His attorney said Rogers broke no laws but was making the reimbursement to avoid the appearance of impropriety.
Gov. Nathan Deal raised more than $1.6 million for his inaugural celebrations and transition into office. Documents released Friday by the Deal inaugural committee show that the former congressman spent about $1.2 million of the money.
Republican gubernatorial hopeful Nathan Deal says as far as he knows he is not the target or the subject of a grand jury probe into his longtime business arrangement with the state. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution obtained documents showing that Georgia Revenue Commissioner Bart Graham was subpoenaed by a grand jury last month regarding a meeting he had with Deal last year.
