If you're down on your luck in the Las Vegas casinos, you should consider an equally popular way to get rich in Nevada these days: Suing the governor!
Yes, it seems that taking Republican Governor Jim Gibbons to court is even more popular in Nevada than buying football picks from the Libertarian vice presidential candidate or getting robbed at gunpoint by O.J. Simpson.
In fact, suing Gibbons has gotten so trendy, it's happened twice in the past week alone! Gibbons' latest lawsuits accuse him of…
* Shoving a cocktail waitress against a wall in a parking garage and declaring "I'm going to rape you."
(And this will of course beget yet another lawsuit– an intellectual property claim from ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who already owns the patent on "dirty texting" scandals.)
So cash in Nevada! Every dollar you lost playing video slots and betting on the Dallas Cowboys can be reclaimed in just one single lawsuit against Gibbons. Cash, vehicles, more chips… it can all be yours.
Just don't expect the court to award you the governor's mansion. Gibbons' estranged wife beat you to that punch months ago.
