Gov. Gibbons Caught Repeatedly Lying About Trip To D.C. With Woman (VIDEO)

Congressional Quarterly/Newscom

Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons was caught by a local news team repeatedly fibbing about whether he traveled to Washington with a Reno woman who the reporters then saw getting off the same plane, and later getting into the governor’s state SUV.

Kathy Karrasch, the woman with whom Gibbons traveled to Washington for the National Governors Association conference, has been publicly linked to the governor since he had to reimburse the state for over 800 text messages he sent to her over a five-week period in 2007.Gibbons, who is divorcing his wife Dawn, recently made headlines for claiming that he has not had sex for 15 years.

In a statement released later, Gibbons admitted Karrasch accompanied him to Washington, and slammed the news station for looking at his private life.

Here’s a bit of the exchange late Monday between Gibbons and a Las Vegas 8 News Now reporter in the Reno airport. The video is below.

“Did you go with anyone today,” asked Reporter Jonathan Humbert.

“Well, what’s it to you? Yeah, I went with security,” said Gibbons.

“And anyone else,” asked Humbert.

“What’s it to you,” said Gibbons. …

“No one else came with you on this trip,” asked Humbert.

“No one. No one,” said Gibbons.

“Kathy Karrasch didn’t accompany you on this trip? She did not,” asked Humbert.

“No,” said Gibbons.

“She’s not in this airport right now,” asked Humbert.

“No,” said Gibbons.

“She was not on that flight,” asked Humbert.

“No,” said Gibbons.
