Anti-Gay NV Gov. Jim Gibbons Can’t Be Guilty of Sexual Assault, ‘Cause He Hasn’t Had Sex In 15 Years

Nevada’s douchey governor, the Republican Jim Gibbons, in May vetoed a bill that would’ve granted the state’s gays domestic partnerships rights. (The following month, lawmakers overrode it.) The move made us suddenly interested in the personal life of this public figure, because anyone who legislates against our rights opens themselves up to a combing for hypocrisy. Like how Gibbons, supposedly respecting the institution of marriage, stands accused by his own wife of two affairs. And that doesn’t include the cocktail waitress Chrissy Mazzeo, whose civil suit against the governor had him delivering a court deposition earlier this month … about how he hasn’t had sex in 15 years.

[flv:http://flash.video.worldnow.com/klas/klas_20100222205119280B.flv http://www.queerty.com/wp/docs/2010/02/gibbonsboard.jpg 650 300]

His dry spell was his defense: He couldn’t have sexually assaulted waitress Chrissy Mazzeo in 2006, as she claims in a federal civil suit, because he hasn’t inserted his penis into another human being in 15 years.

Which, actually, isn’t that great a defense; Mazzeo claims he (“only”) groped her in a parking lot after getting boozed up at a restaurant.

In his sworn deposition, Gibbons was asked if he was, in fact, a happily married man in 2006 and answered yes. But elsewhere in the testimony, Gibbons told Kossack his marriage to Dawn was “strained.”

When asked about his sex life, Gibbons said there had been no intimacy with his wife or any other woman since 1995, adding the comment, “I’m living proof that you can survive without sex for that long.”

Gibbons testified that he had never been unfaithful to his wife and specifically denied having sexual relations with two women linked to him in media accounts — Leslie Sferraza Durant, the ex-Playboy model who accompanied Gibbons to a Reno rodeo and has been seen with him at various restaurants and Kathy Karrasch, the married woman who exchanged hundreds of late night text messages with Gibbons.

And:

Other things the Governor denied during the deposition: he didn’t play footsie with Chrissy Mazzeo on the night of the alleged assault, because he was wearing cowboy boots, and he didn’t tell her any raunchy jokes, because he isn’t a good joke teller.

This is the most delicious defense since Larry Craig’s “wide stance,” AMIRIGHT?

      Governor “I did not have sexual relations with all those women” Gibbons, don’t you know that perjury is illegal? Just ask Bill Clinton.

      Does this man really think that people are going to believe that he and his wife, who did not have a strained marriage, have not been intimate in over fifteen years? Someone like him should not have a say in civil and social matters.

      No sex in 15 years? I would have said no compassion, empathy, fucking humanism.

      By NOM’s standards, this marriage is fruitless and should not be recognized.

      No nooky in 15 years. Wow.

      I don’t know if he wants us to applaud his chastity…or light a Church candle and make a Novena for him?

      Actually Gibbons is an embarrassment to the state of Nevada. This guy is not only sexless (by his words), he is also clueless as to how to run the state. He is such a joke that the people from his own party has lined up to run against him in the next election including a former federal judge.

      The reason for him not signing the bill for gay rights is simple, he’s a mormon.

      In New York, we lose good Governors AKA The Sheriff of Wall Street and then Wall Street collapses followed by Global Markets. Nevada can only hope this Gibbon is defeated for the sake of ass-grabbed waitresses and What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas!
