Gibbons fights accusations by claiming celibacy

Embattled Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons (R) said in a deposition earlier this month that he has been celibate for 15 years.

Gibbons has been accused of groping and assaulting a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas in an incident that occured right before his 2006 win in the state's governor's race. A lawyer for the woman asked Gibbons some very personal questions in a deposition.

Gibbons told her that he had a "strained" marriage with his wife Dawn, and that he hadn't been intimate with her or any other woman since 1995.

"I'm living proof that you can survive without sex for that long," Gibbons said, according to the local CBS affiliate.

Gibbons is up for reelection this year, but he is not expected to survive the GOP primary with Judge Brian Sandoval.
