Gibbon’s campaign hits double boom

Gazette staff June 10th, 2014

John Gibbons, owner of OKC’s The Boom Boom Room, received a double boom to his state House campaign last week.

Gibbons, who is facing three other Democratic opponents of the open seat in House District 88, was in the news last month after reports surfaced that his campaign manager had been accused of domestic abuse. A week later, the Oklahoma County District Attorney filed charges on Gibbons for a DUI arrest from 2012.

The four-year delay on filing charges against Gibbons was blamed on a lack of communication between the highway patrol and the courts. However, it’s hard to view the incident as a coincidence considering Gibbons is running for political office.

Running for office leaves one exposed for past mistakes. However, in Gibbons’ case, his campaign not only put his own mistakes — and the mistakes of those around him — on display for voters to see; it also reminded the district attorney’s office they had a two-year-old DUI case that needed to be filed. Funny how that works.
