Oh you’re going to be burning up over this scandal. I don’t think Wyoming has ever seen something so devious and it has clearly shaken the state to its core. Disaffected residents have been seen wondering in the streets asking ‘how can we ever trust anyone again!?’
At the center of this epic scandal is – cue the scary shrieking music – Liz Cheney! And you won’t believe what she did:
Republican Senatorial candidate Liz Cheney had to pay a fine for incorrectly filing for a resident fishing license and lying about how long she had lived in the state of Wyoming.
Why on earth would Liz Cheney lie about a fishing license?
She issued a statement in response to the news of her oversight, saying that she did not know that there was a year-long requirement and said the clerk who sold it to her never mentioned it.
She gave a lengthy explanation, which Buzzfeed’s Zeke Miller published, saying that she was in town to go fishing on the Snake River with a group of Wounded Warrior veterans and a news crew to film the activity so that it could later be aired on Fox News.
‘I didn’t know whether I would fish that day, but wanted to have a license just in case. When I went in to purchase a license, the clerk asked if I was a resident. I said yes because I was living in Wyoming,’ she said in the statement.
It doesn’t matter Liz. You signed that document so you might as well have lied directly to the clerk’s face!
You know, this is why we vet candidates, to keep such lying scumbags out of office. Just think if this ever happened to President Obama…he would be impeached for such a scandal!
But while we’re at it, there’s more. I know I know, they say you shouldn’t kick a dead horse – but why not. You won’t believe what else she did.
At the end of the same Daily Mail article that exposed this treachery we find this out:
She and her husband were also two months late on their property taxes.
Well if that ain’t the final nail in her campaign coffin, I don’t know what is. You won’t believe her excuse:
Cheney said that the reason for their delay in paying the taxes is because the notifications were sent to her house in McLean, Virginia, but the family had moved to Wyoming by that time.
‘As soon as we learned the tax hadn’t been paid for the first half of the year, we paid the tax,’ she said earlier this month.
Whatever. We’re not idiots Liz ‘McLiarPants’ Cheney. Everybody knows the government never screws up like this.
It doesn’t matter anyway. That fishing license scandal did her in already. I just hope the people of Wyoming will one day be able to trust again.
