MORE NEWS ON THE AFFAIR OF NEVADA GOVERNOR JIM GIBBONS

May 31, 2008

NEVADA’S IDIOT IN CHIEF JIM GIBBONS

As we’ve written about before on The Blog, Nevada has the worst governor in America.

Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons is currently getting a divorce. Things are getting so ugly that Governor Gibbons is actually trying to have The First Lady evicted from the governor’s mansion. This week details are coming out about Gibbons and his possible affair. Dawn Gibbons declared there was “another woman” in her divorce proceedings. The Las Vegas Review Journal has identified the woman as married 48-year-old Kathy Karrasch.

The Review Journal even posted a video supposedly showing the governor’s mistress (it’s awful and hardly worth a look.) The RJ apparently felt compelled to run SOME video of the woman after the Reno paper ran video of the governor attending the play of his mistress’ daughter.

Meanwhile a Nevada blog has published part of First Lady Dawn Gibbons’ divorce petition and it makes for hilarious reading.

According to the divorce petition filed by his wife, Gibbons is an adulterer:

——————————————————————————

After more than twenty years of marriage, the Plaintiff has deserted, abandoned, and
has shunned his wife without justification for that behavior.

Truth, despite his disingenuous, shallow, and transparent protestations that his
relationship with another man’s wife is a mere friendship, his infatuation and involvement
with the other woman is the real, concealed and undisclosed reason for his voluntary
departure from the marriage and from the Mansion where he occasionally resided.

————————————————————————–

Also, according to Mrs. Gibbons, the Governor drinks “copious amounts” of liquor.

————————————————————————–

For just one example, even when , after consuming copious amounts of alcohol, and
under the cover of darkness, in a garage in Las Vegas, the Plaintiff was accused of assaulting
a young woman, bearing a striking resemblance, to the “other woman” referenced, below,
that woman, too, like his wife now, was trashed and the Public was, again, misled. But, she
never had the opportunity of having a Public hearing with attendant cross-examination of
this man so the truth would be told. This event was of universal interest to the media and
was widely covered by the press.

————————————————————————-

Mrs. Gibbons also calls her husband “the most scandal ridden governor in the history of this state” and accuses the governor’s mistress of being a “stalker”:

———————————————————————————–

As demonstrated below, the
Public’s right to know is Constitutionally protected in order to preserve our democracy and
our way of life. This Public interest is heightened when the subject of interest is one of the
most if not the most scandal ridden Governor in the history of this State. And, he has only
held the office for a year and a half. Mrs. Gibbons is entitled to her day in Court, in an open
court, not in a secret proceeding, but a public one that will provide her with a forum in which
to be publicly exonerated, and in which she can fix blame where it belongs, on the shoulders
of the woman who the has, for years, stalked the man who could give her the public persona
and prestige, that, apparently, she craves,

UNKNOWN, UNDRAFTED FREE AGENT SAYS HE’LL RUSH FOR 2,000 YARDS

DENVER BRONCOS RUNNING BACK SELVIN YOUNG

The Big Lead found this story in the Denver Post:

You’ve got to hand it to Denver Broncos running back Selvin Young. At least he thinks big.

Yesterday, during the second week of offseason practices, Young predicted he would rush for over 2,000 yards this season. That would be quite a feat since only five players in NFL history have ever done that (O.J. Simpson, Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Terrell Davis and Jamal Lewis.)

Not to mention Young isn’t even the Broncos starting running back. At least not yet. He still has to beat out fat, overpaid, dope-smokingbaby making (nine children with nine women and counting) machine Travis Henry. Still, Broncos coach Mike Shanahan was impressed by the brashness of his second year halfback,

 

“I’d like for him to prove that to me,” Shanahan said. “And he could very well do it. There’s a big difference from your first year to your second year.”

Despite being undrafted, Young ran for 729 yards on 5.2 yards per carry his rookie year for Denver out of the University of Texas.

FIFTY CENT’S HOUSE IN DIX HILLS, NY BURNS DOWN (BECAUSE EVERYBODY KNOWS YOU CAN GET SHOT 9 TIMES AND STILL WALK AWAY)

A home owned by singer 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) burned down yesterday morning. Following the fire, Shaniqua Tompkins (50’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his son Marquise) held a press conference. Tompkins was living in the house at the time of the fire.

Tompkins claims 50 burned the house down following a dispute over money and tried to kill her and her 10-year-old son. Both Tompkins and her son were treated for smoke inhalation at a local hospital.

 

DID 50 CENT TRY TO KILL HIS OWN KID?

Thursday, 50 and Tompkins were taped having a heated argument (the incident was caught on tape by TMZ.com.) The fight occurred shortly after the two were being deposed at her lawyer’s offices. The fight happens on Thursday. The next day her house burns to the ground. Hmmm…

Iler was reportedly at home at the time of the accident. He “felt the impact and heard people screaming” according to TMZ.com. The celebrity site reported the incident was “very traumatic” for the young Sopranos star.

Iler has lived in the building for several years. His apartment was not affected and he was uninjured.

A BOY AND HIS DOG: FLORIDA YOUTH CAUGHT WITH SEX TAPE OF HIM AND HIS POOCH

May 30, 2008

 

 

Here’s another Florida atrocity (why do all the REALLY weird things happen in Florida?)

A 17-year-old Florida youth and his school teacher mother have been barred by a judge from owning any pets. The ruling came after a tape emerged of the boy having sex with his pet German Shepherd.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel is not identifying the boy because he was a juvenile at the time of the activity.

His mother, whose residence is where the sexual activity occurred, teaches at a public school.

SOME CBS AFFILILIATES TO BLACK OUT ELITE XC CARD THIS WEEKEND

May 30, 2008

The New York Post is reporting in its Friday edition that though MMA is making its network tv debut this weekend, not everyone will get to see the fights. Several markets are blacking the matches out. For instance, MMA fans in Pennsylvania are being forbidden from seeing the card.

Mixed Martial Arts fights are illegal in the state of Pennsylvania and local tv affiliates are interpreting that to mean that the CBS Elite XC bouts can’t even be TELEVISED in Pennsylvania. Therefore, the Elite XC card featuring Kimbo Slice will not be shown in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh or any other stations in Pennsylvania.

Outraged fans in Pennsylvania have responded by flooding tv station phone lines and internet message boards.

IS TYE FIELDS READY FOR THE BIGTIME ?

May 30, 2008

TYE FIELDS: GREAT WHITE HYPE ?

For whatever reason, boxer Tye Fields has never captured the imagination of the American public. Despite being 40-1 in his professional boxing career, Fields has never sniffed a title shot.

Critics have ravaged the former Division 1 college basketball player who hooped at Oral Roberts, San Diego State and with the minor league Des Moines Dragons. At 6 foot 8 and 275 pounds, Fields is one of the biggest fighters in boxing history. Fields never fought as an amateur. He went straight from basketball to boxing and didn’t make his professional debut until he was 24.

In his first 14 professional heavyweight fights, Fields was 14-0 with 14 FIRST ROUND KNOCKOUTS. That record is unparalleled in boxing history. I don’t care how bad the quality of the opponents was. I’ve seen Fields fight several times in Las Vegas (always at small venues like the Friday Night Fights at The Orleans) and he is always a crowd favorite.

In recent years Fields has defeated several quality fighters-Saul Montana, Ed Mahone, Maurice Harris and former heavyweight champion Bruce Seldon. He has also been trained by respected fight men like Emmanuel Stewart and Jesse Reid. But regardless of these impressive accomplishments, there have always been whispers about Fields and his abilities. Critics continually said he had no stamina. Fields responded by training for and running a marathon.

After winning his last fight in December with a first round knockout of Chris Koval (at The Hard Rock in 43 seconds), Fields still isn’t getting a title shot but at least he’s in the building during one.

Fields will fight veteran Monte Barrett on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao/David Diaz fight in June at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. It is Fields’ first appearance on a major card.
