    Early last month after reading the I-JOBS report from Iowa Governor Chet Culver’s office I asked where are the jobs from I-JOBS?

To find out where the I-JOBS jobs were located, I made an open records request with the Governor’s office late on October 7th which they then received October 8th asking for them to provide the number of jobs created/retained by project...

    owa Governor Chet Culver says he plans to use his State of the State address on Tuesday to "set the record straight." Allow me to translate. Setting the record straight for Culver means he will offer a complete distortion of his disastrous tenure. So, instead of listening to the lies he plans to unleash Tuesday morning, please read Chet Culver's real State of the State address, if he bothered to tell the truth.....

However, Culver said the issue before the court in its unanimous ruling Friday involved only civil marriage, and that churches and other religious institutions do not have to perform them....
