Bahamian official resigns over Anna Nicole Smith photo flap
UPI News Service, 02/19/2007
The Bahamian official photographed in an embrace with the late Anna Nicole Smith has resigned.
Immigration and Labor Minister Shane Gibson's resignation came nearly a week after photographs of Gibson and Smith embracing in bed -- both fully clothed -- were published and amid allegations that the minister received a gift from Smith as a thank you for the approval of her permanent residency application last year, The Bahamas Journal said Monday.
Gibson also is being criticized for allegedly giving Smith, who died Feb. 8 in Florida of unknown causes, special treatment when she applied for permanent residency.
