Liz Cheney is running for the GOP nomination for Wyoming's U.S. Senate seat, but she could face a misdemeanor charge and fines of up to $1,000, if she lied about her residency in Wyoming in order to buy a fishing license.
According to the Casper Star-Tribune, Cheney is listed on her Wyoming fishing license application as a 10-year resident of Montana.
However, the former Vice President's daughter bought her home in Wilson, Wyoming in 2012.
Wyoming Game and Fish project coordinator Mark Nelson says Cheney could be fined $220 and charged with a misdemeanor for making false statements.
If Cheney were to contest the $220 fine, then a judge could fine her $1000, if she lost her appeal.
“At this point we’re going to follow up on this like any other residency issues. It’s at the initial stages of verification," Nelson told the Casper Star-Tribune.
“The clerk must have made a mistake. I never claimed to be a 10-year resident," said Cheney.
