Senate candidate Liz Cheney improperly received a state resident fishing license based on an application with incorrect information, according to Wyoming Game and Fish Department records.That's about par for the course, privileged rich white lady, blame the clerk. It is not in the Cheneys' makeup to ever admit a mistake. Or worse.
Cheney, who last month announced she will challenge Sen. Mike Enzi in the 2014 Republican primary, received her resident license just 72 days after closing on her Wilson house in May 2012.

It has been my experience that every government form, application, etc. has at the bottom a phrase something like "I hereby certify the above to be true and correct". Directly below that is your signature.

The fine for a false statement on the application is $220 and is a misdemeanor, he said. If Game and Fish imposes the fine and Cheney chooses to contest the fine in court, a judge could ratchet up the fine to $1,000.
“At this point we’re going to follow up on this like any other residency issues,” Nelson said. “It’s at the initial stages of verification.”
