WASHINGTON (AP) - An attorney for Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons says
the first-term Republican has been cleared of wrongdoing in an FBI
Gibbons, a former congressman, has been under Justice Department
investigation for years. But defense attorney Abbe Lowell says prosecutors recently informed him that Gibbons would face no charges. He says the Justice Department acknowledges there's no evidence of wrongdoing by Gibbons.
The FBI had been investigating whether Gibbons improperly received gifts from a software company that received military contracts while he was in Congress. Gibbons has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing.
