No charges will be filed against Nevada's governor after an 18-month FBI investigation into his ties with defense contractors, reports the Washington Post. Jim Gibbons, a former Vietnam fighter pilot, was suspected of helping to engineer federal contracts for defense firms in exchange for gifts while he was a member of Congress. Gibbons' wife received consulting fees from one of the companies. The couple split this year after the governor propositioned a cocktail waitress.
"The prosecutors in the case confirmed what the governor has been saying for the past two years—that he did nothing wrong," said Gibbons' attorney.
