Liz Cheney, who is challenging Sen. Mike Enzi's Wyoming Senate seat in 2014, had to pay a $220 fine Monday for falsely claiming Wyoming residency on a fishing license. By Wyoming law, you must have lived in Wyoming for at least the past year to qualify for a resident license.
Cheney bought a house in Jackson Hole in May 2012, and moved her family there from suburban Virginia last year. She told the Casper Star-Tribune her move wasn't politically motivated, but this story is the equivalent of a bumper sticker that reads "Carpetbagger."
From the Jackson Hole Daily:
She has said that she did not know one was required to live in Wyoming for the immediately previous 365 days to qualify as a resident. She said she never told the clerk who sold the license she lived in the state for 10 years, although the clerk marked her application “10” under the category of years of residency.
Maybe Enzi can put in a good word for Cheney with the Fish and Wildlife Department—he used to fly-fish with her dad.
