NSFW!

For many adolescents and young adults, text messaging is all the rage. Verbal or face-to-face interaction?

LOL!

And if Nevada’s governor is any indicator, the trend appears to be spreading to older folks, as well.

After perusing documents obtained thanks to an open records request, the Reno Gazette-Journal discovered that Gov. Jim Gibbons went on a text messaging binge last year with his state-issued cell phone.

In one month alone, the governor sent 860 personal text messages.

OMG!

But it gets better — or worse. Gov. Gibbons and his wife, Dawn, are estranged. While the couple have agreed to put divorce proceedings on hold, Dawn Gibbons in court papers previously accused her husband of being involved with the wife of a Reno doctor.

Turns out the recipient of the governor’s texting flurry was Kathy Karrasch, the wife of a Reno podiatrist.

CSG!

Gov. Gibbons on Wednesday said he made a “mistake” and has repaid the state, which had no text messaging plan so was billed extra for the service.

That’s good — and let’s hope he’s learned a lesson: When it comes to personal communications, use your personal cell phone.

XOXO!
