It’s one of the most bizarre statements ever made by an elected official.  Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons had to answer very personal questions in a deposition.

He was questioned by the lawyer for a Las Vegas woman who alleges that Gibbons groped and assaulted her in a parking garage after a night of drinking.

Attorneys in both of those proceedings have questioned whether Gibbons is a philanderer and womanizer. The questions that have been raised in both cases have focused on intensely personal matters that have spilled out into the governor’s public life.

In his sworn deposition, Gibbons was asked if he was, in fact, a happily married man in 2006 and answered yes. But elsewhere in the testimony, Gibbons told Kossack his marriage to Dawn was “strained.”

When asked about his sex life, Gibbons said there had been no intimacy with his wife or any other woman since 1995, adding the comment, “I’m living proof that you can survive without sex for that long.”

Gibbons also denied he played footsie under a bar table with a woman because he was wearing cowboy boots, and said he didn’t know the meaning of the phrase “double entendre.”
