NV's Gibbons Decides Marital Separation Just Not Painful Enough
So Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons and his wife are having some marital difficulties. Which is awful and sad and, frankly, kinda not any of ...
But there's a new interesting twist. Gibbons moved out of the Governor's Mansion -- and that might be a violation of a state law that requires the governor to maintain residence in Carson City.
The 1866 law says a governor must "keep his office and reside at the seat of government." It once applied to most constitutional officers but over the years they've all been exempted from the requirement by the Legislature.
While first lady Dawn Gibbons remains at the Governor's Mansion and Gibbons is spending nights at their Reno residence, Gibbons press secretary Ben Kieckhefer said it's a temporary situation and there's no law violation.
