Gibbons makes group’s list of worst governors
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) – Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons has made a watchdog group’s list of the top 11 worst governors in the nation.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington cite, among other things, allegations against Gibbons of assaulting a Las Vegas cocktail waitress in a parking garage and his use of a state-issued cell phone to send more than 800 text message to a woman he described as a long-time friend.
The Washington, D.C.-based group, in its report released Wednesday, also criticized Gibbons for initially saying he would refuse federal stimulus money to help ease the state’s budget shortfall.
Gibbons’ Chief of Staff Robin Reedy discounted the report as baseless.
