St. George, Utah - Nevada Gov. Jim "Bad Idea" Gibbons accidentally filed to run for governor of Utah earlier this morning in Provo. Gibbon's had been on a "official fact-finding mission" to the Full Moon Swingers Retreat And Conference Center, and apparently confused Provo for Carson City. Having discovered the mistake, the governor immediately flew back to Reno to file for his reelection bid to governor of Nevada. He will appear on Utah's ballot as well, but will be listed as "Mr. Happy Snake", the name he apparently wrote on the filing documents.
The governor's office stated that he had traveled to the Swingers Club and Conference Center alone, and did not have anyone else's wife traveling with him. They also made available nearly 20 hours of videotape recorded by the governor at the swingers club, to "reassure the voters" that the governor was not using government-sponsored trips for personal pleasure. Gibbons allegedly said yesterday "I want to be clear. My time at the Full Moon Swingers Retreat was purely for official government business. Sure, everybody was naked and all we did was play volleyball and drink Appletini's, but I was there as an official representative from Nevada. Want to watch a tape? There was this one chick with huge... nevermind. End of news conference."
The governor's office failed to address rumors that CMT had signed Gibbons for a reality show to start next year when he is no longer governor, having come in fourth in a three-person race. The show called "Screw You, Nevada!" is reportedly in pre-production, and follows Gibbons and his staff as they all look for lobbyist jobs after being voted out of office in November. The PBZ blog reported yesterday that Gibbons trip to Utah was actually a video shoot to provide material for promos for the reality show. Especially hot naked chicks.
The CMT network failed to respond to our calls, most likely because we called them at 430 in the morning.
