Governor Jim Gibbons' divorce case: New documents show alimony, property values are sticking points
This is rich:


Recently filed documents in the divorce case of Gov. Jim Gibbons and the first lady go into further detail about his contention that he shouldn't have to pay alimony past 2011 because he might not be re-elected.

As the Reno Gazette-Journal first reported Oct. 15, Gibbons' lawyer has argued that the governor should be able to stop paying Dawn Gibbons alimony after Jan. 1, 2011 because he could be unemployed after the next election.

Gibbons has discounted that his lawyer's argument concedes anything about next year's election, in which he's facing a Republican primary battle.

In the documents, the governor’s lawyer, Gary Silverman, argues the biggest sticking points in the divorce continue to be property values and the alimony.
