The train wreck that is the Jim Gibbons governorship of Nevada is making a non-governmental but practically obligatory stop: divorce court.

The filing has been sealed, but it's likely another legal challenge against his wife will be argued in public -- namely, his desire to kick Dawn Gibbons out of the governor's mansion, where she's been living and he has not been.

Isn't the mansion the property of the state? Well, I guess this is a private matter -- for Gov. Gibbons alone, apparently:

Just days before the governor filed for divorce, in fact, Dawn Gibbons complained bitterly to a Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist that her husband won't speak to her and that she doesn't know why he's divorcing her. She added: "I can hardly make it through the day."
