As Harry Reid's campaign released the 1981 police report on the well-documented attempt on his life, Gov. Jim Gibbons joined in the "fun" with talk show host Heidi Harris, bizarrely making light of the crude explosive device placed under the hood:
“I know very little about the investigation,” laughed Governor Gibbons on the program. “But my understanding is it was a telephone book and a shoe box… I guess unless Nextel who has about 100 billion phone books out there, and every household, would have a weapon of mass destruction in their house as a phone book. You have to wonder just what it is that they were doing.”
See the police report and hear Gibbons' joke at right.
