Nevada Republican Senator JIM GIBBONS gave job to radio reporter

JIM GIBBONS: Lawmaker gave job to radio reporter

Rep. Jim Gibbons paid a veteran TV reporter $8,000 for consulting last year while she worked as a freelance reporter for a Reno radio station, according to campaign finance reports.

A Federal Election Commission report filed by Gibbons, R-Nev., lists the payment to Andrea Engleman on Nov. 30, 2004, just weeks after she had been fired as co-host of the television news program Nevada Newsmakers. At the time the contract was in effect, she said, she was compiling reports for KOH-AM, 780 in Reno.

Gibbons' spokeswoman, Amy Spanbauer, said Engleman was hired to conduct post-election analysis for the congressman.

"It was our understanding that she was not contracting with any media at the time," Spanbauer said.
