Divorce, Nevada style: The 'enraged ferret'

In case you thought Harry Reid is the most troubled politician in Nevada, today's story about the settlement of Republican Gov. Jim Gibbons' nasty divorce from his wife, former state legislator and congressional candidate Dawn Gibbons, might be illuminating:

Though Nevada is a no-fault divorce state, Dawn Gibbons, in a series of court filings, had accused her husband of using her to further his political career and of having at least two affairs, one with a former Playboy model.

In turn, Jim Gibbons unsuccessfully tried to boot her from the governor's mansion in Carson City — she retreated to an apartment on the grounds — and in court papers compared living with her to “being locked in a phone booth with an enraged ferret.”
