Scandals Land Gibbons On 'Worst Governors' List

9 Republicans, 2 Democrats On List

POSTED: 8:52 am PDT April 21, 2010

Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons, who is facing a daunting primary challenge this June, has been named one of the worst governors in America, according to the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

The CREW report lists six scandals that have unfolded throughout Gibbons’ tenure in office and also dating back to his time in Congress.

Among the charges: that Gibbons allegedly assaulted cocktail waitress Chrissy Mazzeo when he was a candidate for governor, and that he misused state resources in pursuit of an extra-marital affair with Kathy Karrasch, a woman Gibbons has described only as a friend.

In assessing governors from all 50 states, CREW said it based its findings on the following criteria: corruption, transparency, partisan politics, pressuring public officials, cronyism, self-enrichment and scandal.

Republican governors Bobby Jindal and Arnold Schwarzenegger were also on the list, along with democratic governors David Paterson and Bill Richardson.

The complete report can be found on the CREW Web site.
