JIM GIBBONS SOON TO BE AMERICA’S WORST EX-GOVERNOR

June 9, 2010

JIM GIBBONS

Nevada governor Jim Gibbons can now get the party started. The scandal-plagued Gibbons had vowed to celebrate if he lost in the state’s Republican primary, Tuesday. Mission accomplished.

Gibbons became the first sitting governor in Nevada history to fail to make it out of his state’s party primary. Gibbons was creamed, losing the Republican nominatiion to judge Brian Sandoval and receiving only 25% of the vote. Polls had Gibbons with a ridiculous 10% approval rating. His littany of scandals and screwups is awe inspiring. Gibbons was accused of sexually assaulting a cocktail waitress right before his 2006 election, investigated by the FBI after being accused of taking a six-figure bribe from a Nevada businessman in the form of poker chips during a cruise, hired an illegal alien nanny, used his state-issued cell phone to text a mistress hundreds of times, was outed as a would-be rapist by a secret video of a stray cat, got caught making out with a former Playboy bunny in the parking lot of a rodeo, and was videotaped flying another mistress to a governor’s conference on the taxpayers’ dime all while going through a messy divorce and wrecking the state’s economy.

Writer Ken Layne and Wonkette.com, who have been particularly hard on “America’s worst governor,” celebrated last night’s loss by calling Gibbons a “pig-eyed drunken would-be rapist and serial crook.”

Here are some of the actual phrases by which Wonkette and Layne have referred to Gibbons in the past:

“Drunken idiot”

“Leering imbecile and national embarrassment”

“bloated idiot”

“mean-spirited mouth-breathing turd”

“utter asshole”

“bribetaker”

“cretin”

“paranoid schizophrenic”

and finally a “moronic alcoholic waitress-assaulting sex criminal.”

AMERICA’S WORST GOVERNOR CALLED “INCOMPETENT” BY FORMER SUPPORTER

NEVADA GOVERNOR JIM GIBBONS

We’ve detailed time and time and time and time and time and time again on this blog how Nevada’s Jim Gibbons is the worst governor in America. Now, one of Gibbons’ former supporters has come out and blasted the embattled governor.

In an interview with the Las Vegas Sun, wealthy businessman and former university administrator Jim Rogers said of Gibbons, “I’ve never seen anybody in that type of position who has been that incompetent.”

Gibbons is trailing by 18 points in the latest poll and may not even make it through the state’s primary in his re-election bid.

LAWYER: PHANTOM CAT IN VIDEO PROVES NEVADA GOVERNOR IS A WOULDBE RAPIST

April 23, 2010

 

THIS CAT APPEARS ON DIFFERENT FLOORS AT THE SAME TIME ON PARKING GARAGE SURVEILANCE VIDEOS

Boy, are bloggers like Ken Layne of Wonkette.com going to love this. Layne once wrote a piece calling Nevada governor Jim Gibbons a “moronic alcoholic waitress-assaulting sex criminal.” You’ll notice Gibbons never sued him. Layne also called Gibbons, “Nevada’s drunken idiot governor” and a “bribe-taker.” Legal briefs filed yesterday in a civil lawsuit against governor Gibbons, accusing him of sexual assault, claim there were doctored videotapes and an official police coverup in Las Vegas in the case.

The 72-page legal brief filed by Nevada attorney Robert Kossack claims Gibbons told his client, Chrissy Mazzeo, that he was going to rape her and there was nothing she could do about it. This allegedly happened in a parking garage after Gibbons is accused of stealing Mazzeo’s car keys and stalking her.

Actually, there WAS something Mazzeo could do. She took off. As Kossack’s brief explains, “Gibbons probably weighs 75 pound more than Chrissy, but Chrissy was 32 years old and Gibbons was 61 years old , so being 29 years younger than Gibbons…”

Mazzeo then called 911, and her “friend” Pennie Puhek. Puhek is the woman who introduced Mazzeo to Gibbons and sat down to join him for drinks on the evening of the alleged incident. Unfortunately for Mazzeo, Puhek’s husband was one of the biggest contributors to Gibbons’ gubernatorial campaign. Soon, Puhek was calling Mazzeo repeatedly trying to talk her out of filing charges against Gibbons WHATEVER happened. Meanwhile, Nevada political fixer Sig Rogich had already called outgoing Las Vegas Sheriff  Bill Young (another Gibbons supporter) to talk him out of filing charges.

Kossack alleges in his brief that not only were there political shenanigans involved in not charging Gibbons with sexual assault, but that survailance tapes of the parking garage where the Mazzeo/Gibbons confrontation occured were doctored. Kossack has come up with time-code photos showing the same stray cat on multiple floors at the exact same moment. Kossack theorizes that’s because police erased some two-plus minutes of tape showing Gibbons assaulting Mazzeo then re-recorded over it. Thus, multiple kitties.

Finally, in addition to the Gibbons-is-old digs that Kossack manages to hammer home, he also cites THIS BLOG as actual evidence in court as what a scumbag Gibbons is. Congratulate us. We are offically exhibit 17:

VEGAS TV STATION BUSTS IDIOT NEVADA GOVERNOR WITH MISTRESS

February 24, 2010

CHANNEL 8 REPORTER JONATHAN HUMBERT NAILS NEVADA GOVERNOR JIM GIBBONS

Nevada governor Jim Gibbons is a moron. His political career has been plagued by scandal. Whether it’s sexual assault allegations, making out with a Playboy playmate in a parking lot, text messaging his mistresses on his government phone, or being accused of taking bribes, Gibbons’ run as governor  has been besieged by controversy.

On top of all this, the state of Nevada has run into a financial crisis, facing a $1 billion budget shortfall . The state is going into an emergency special session this week to make drastic budget cuts. Under this climate, the local CBS TV affiliate, KLAS channel 8, just busted Gibbons getting off a plane with his mistress. The station implies that Gibbons used taxpayer money to fly his girlfriend to Washington D.C.

The highlight of the interview is when reporter Jonathan Humbert asks Gibbons’ mistress Kathy Karrasch why she ran back into a restroom to flee KLAS tv cameras. Karrasch reponded that she “forgot to wash my hands.” Gibbons then tells Humbert he’s “full of s**t” as Karrasch gets into his state-owned SUV and has his (taxpayer paid) security threaten the reporter.

Paying for his mistress to travel with him is fairly awkward for Gibbons since there’s a story out TODAY that Gibbons gave a deposition UNDER OATH that he hasn’t had sex since 1995. The deposition came during Gibbons’ protracted divorce.

BROKEASS NEVADA CUTS OFF ADULT DIAPERS FOR MEDICAID PATIENTS

February 10, 2010

So, it’s come to this. The state of Nevada, facing an $880 million budget shortfall, is going to start rationing diapers for incontinent adult Medicaid patients. The proposed diaper cutback was part of the drastic $120 million in Medicaid cuts by Nevada. The state also slashed hearing aids and dentures for old people and cut off people with brain damage.

The Nevada  Medicaid cuts come in addition  to teacher firings, school and prison closures, and kicking kids out of kindergarten. Of course, Nevada was the front runner to receive $8 billion in stimulus money to build a Maglev train from Disneyland to Las Vegas. Unfortunately, Nevada’s idiot governor literally didn’t fill out the paperwork to get the money. That (and the sexual assault allegation) is just another reason that Nevada’s Jim Gibbons was named “America’s Worst Governor.” And that was while Rod Blagojevich was still in office and BEFORE the current budget crisis.

There’s an entire website devoted to hammering the governor called www.votegibbonsout.com. Another site, Wonkette.com once called Gibbons a “moronic alcoholic waitress-assaulting sex criminal.” Ken Layne has also referred to Gibbons as a “bribe taker” and a “drunken idiot.” Those articles came in between Layne calling Gibbons a “cretin” and a “paranoid schizophrenic.”Even Chrissy Mazzeo, the governor’s most famous constituent and the woman who accused him of trying to rape her, testified that Gibbons was a “boring and undesirable oild man.”

GOOD NEWS, LADIES: NEVADA GOVERNOR BACK UP FOR GRABS

NEVADA GOVERNOR JIM GIBBONS NOW FREE TO RESUME A LIFE OF DRUNKEN FORNICATION

Nevada governor Jim Gibbons is breathing a sigh of relief. His divorce from wife Dawn has officially been finalized without going to a messy trial. A Gibbons spokesman said the governor was taking the “high road” and not commenting on the former First Lady. That is if by “high road’ you mean comparing Dawn Gibbons to a rodent and calling her an “enraged ferret.”

To briefly summarize the Gibbons divorce settlement: He gets the gun collection, she gets the art and they split the couple’s Model T collection. Gibbons will also pay a lump settlement of $275,000 to his ex-wife and $4,000 a month for the next four years.

Gibbons was caught cheating on his ex on multiple occassions. He was photographed making out with a former Playboy Playmate in a parking lot at the rodeo:

He also was forced to cancel his state issued cell phone after sending 867 text messages to another one of his mistresses. Not to mention those pesky attempted rape allegations by a former Vegas cocktail waitress.

 The website Wonkette.com had a field day over the Gibbons divorce announcement. Today, Wonkette referred to Gibbons as an “alcoholic sex crook.” Wonkette is the same website that constantly refers to Layne as “The Nation’s Worst Governor.”  In a piece last year, writer Ken Layne called Gibbons as a “drunken idiot.” Layne also referred to Gibbons as a “moronic alcoholic waitress-assaulting sex criminal” and a “bribe taker.” Layne has long been one of Gibbons’ biggest foes.

STAFF PAY RAISES HAVE NEVADA VOTERS PROTESTING OUTSIDE GOVERNOR’S HOUSE

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.

CHRISSY MAZZEO FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST GOVERNOR GIBBONS

November 30, 2008

CHRISSY MAZZEO

Chrissy Mazzeo has formally filed a civil lawsuit against Nevada governor Jim Gibbons accusing him of battery, false imprisonment and attempted kidnapping. Mazzeo continues to maintain Gibbons attempted to rape her following an evening of drinking in Las Vegas during October of 2006.

Gibbons was elected governor shortly after the alleged incident. Mazzeo and her lawyer, Robert Kossack of Las Vegas, allege a cover up/conspiracy in the Gibbons case. Their lawsuit was recently filed in Federal court. They say that’s why Gibbons was never prosecuted over the alleged incident. A surveilance tape from the parking garage where the incident was supposed to have happened mysteriously disappeared.

Mazzeo’s lawsuit also contends there was a blatant cover up of the Gibbons case between the governor’s handler/political operative Sid Rogich, Metro Police, former sheriff Bill Young and former Gibbons attorney Dan Campbell.

AMERICA’S WORST GOVERNOR HAS E-MAIL ISSUES

November 24, 2008

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

October 16, 2008

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.
