Jeff Sauer found was that authorship itself didn't necessarily grant you high rankings, but sharing an article or site from an established Google+ account that actually discusses other things in the general neighborhood of that topic may do so (or at least, it may get you indexed much more quickly).
I don't actually recall anyone from Google saying authorship would help you rank, just that it does have a tendency to increase CTR of pages that already rank.
