ANGRY PROTESTERS MARCH ON NEVADA GOVERNOR

The way voters in the state of Nevada are reacting you’d think their governor, Jim Gibbons, was an AIG executive (see sign in above photo.) This week voters were so outraged over raises that Gibbons gave his personal staff that they marched outside the home of “America’s Worst Governor” in protest.

Las Vegas Review Journal columnist John L. Smith destroys Gibbons in his latest piece and accuses the governor of “hypocrisy.” Nevada is currently going through the worst budget crisis in the history of the state. Things are so bad that virtually all state workers were recently forced to take a 6 percent pay cut. That included every teacher in Nevada. It is under that economic and political climate that Gibbons just gave his press secretary a 28% pay raise. In fact, all of Gibbons’ staff got hefty raises leading to outrage and physical protests.

This is a seperate protest than the one recently conducted on the campus of UNLV where education dollars have been drastically slashed.

AMERICA’S WORST GOVERNOR HAS E-MAIL ISSUES

NEVADA GOVERNOR JIM GIBBONS

As we’ve written on this site on numerous occassions, Nevada has America’s worst governor. Jim Gibbons has not only led the state into fiscal chaos, but he’s also been involved in a myriad of personal controversies. There’s the cocktail waitress who has accused the govenor of attempted rape, Gibbons’ messy divorce, and the 867 text messages he sent his mistress on his state phone just to name a few.

Now the governor is apparently having e-mail issues.  The Reno Gazette-Journal is suing Gibbons to gain access to his government e-mails to a contractor the governor was accused of taking bribes from, several government officials and various Gibbons misstresses.

Among the e-mails the Reno paper wants access to are those Gibbons sent Leslie Durant. The Carson City paper ran pictures of the governor romancing the 40-ish blonde who once posed naked in Playboy:

Those pictures were taken in the parking lot and inside the rodeo. There were other pictures of the two together.

The Reno paper is also suing for Gibbons’ e-mails to another reported mistress named Kathy Karrasch. There were also photos of her published:

The Gazette-Journal is trying to obtain Gibbons’ e-mails to her on his state account as well. Ordinarily it would be pretty hard to believe that a state’s governor would be stupid enough to write his mistress using a state e-mail account. Unfortunately, Gibbons has already admitted to texting Karrasch 867 times on his state-issued cell phone, racking up an extra $130 in charges.

AMERICA’S WORST GOVERNOR SUED OVER ATTEMPTED RAPE

NEVADA’S IDIOT-IN-CHIEF JIM GIBBONS

It’s not even debatable. Nevada has the nation’s worst governor.

Journalist and writer Ken Layne has called Nevada governor Jim Gibbons a “moronic alcoholic waitress-assaulting sex criminal.” Layne has also referred to Gibbons as a “bribe taker” and a “drunken idiot.”

 Gibbons won the governor’s race despite being accused of assaulting a cocktail waitress just weeks before the election. That cocktail waitress, Chrissy Mazzeo, is now suing Gibbons.

Mazzeo says Gibbons threatened to rape her following a bizarre incident at the Las Vegas restaurant McCormick and Schmick’s. The two met in the restaurant’s bar on the evening of October 13, 2006 while Gibbons was with his campaign staff and Mazzeo was with her (former) best friend.

Mazzeo’s complaint was filed in Nevada district court by her lawyer Robert Kossack. It is one of the most entertaining legal documents ever written.

The lawsuit not only describes Gibbons saying to Mazzeo,

 

“I don’t want to f*#* you. I want to rape you.”

 

 

but it also goes into great detail about the pair’s initial encounter. According to the lawsuit, upon being introduced to the future governor of Nevada Mazzeo said,

 

“Nice to meet you Bill Clinton.”

The lawsuit also says Mazzeo’s initial reaction to Gibbons was that he was a “boring and undesirable old man.” According to the lawsuit this reaction didn’t stop the married Gibbons from trying to have sex with her. The complaint says Gibbons was constantly touching Mazzeo and telling dirty jokes. Gibbons, a self-professed Mormon, was getting drunk the entire time according to the lawsuit. The liquor tab at Gibbons’ table reached $302.12. Eventually the encounter led to an incident at an adjacent parking lot where Mazzeo says Gibbons tried to rape her.

Mazzeo’s lawsuit also criticizes her former “best friend” who introduced her to Gibbons. The woman’s husband, a local dentist, is active in Nevada Republican politics. According to the lawsuit the woman turned on Mazzeo “faster than a pancake flipped by a short-order cook.”

Mazzeo is also suing Gibbons’ campaign manager Sid Rogich, former Clark County Sheriff Bill Young and Las Vegas Metro police.
