A feud between a pair of former business partners may spell trouble for Jim Gibbons, the Governor of Nevada. In her NBC News Investigates expose, Lisa Myers sat down with Dennis Montgomery, who is cooperating with an FBI probe. Montgomery told Myers he saw his former partner Warren Trepp bribe Gibbons with "close to $100,000" in casino chips and cash while they were on a Caribbean cruise in 2005. Gibbons, at the time, was a Republican Congressman. Montgomery and Trepp are now in a court fight for control of the firm, eTreppid Technologies, which has received "tens of millions of dollars in federal contracts," according to Myers. Trepp's lawyers claim Montgomery is fabricating the bribery story to win his lawsuit. Gibbons told Myers that he was "not the kind of an individual" ever to pocket a bribe.
