Wyoming Senate candidate Liz Cheney (R) has paid a fine stemming from improper receipt of a fishing license.

Jackson Hole News And Guide reported Wednesday that Cheney posted a $220 bond for making a false claim on her Wyoming fishing license application. According to the paper, the violation in question was statute 23-3-403(a), which reads "No person shall procure or attempt to procure any license or tag under this act by false swearing, fraud, or false statement of any kind or in any form."

Two weeks ago the Casper Star-Tribune reported that Cheney received the license hundreds of days earlier than allowed, and was also listed as a resident for 10 years. Wyoming Game & Fish Department rules state that one full year of residency in Wyoming is required before obtaining one.

“The clerk must have made a mistake,” Cheney told the Star-Tribune. “I never claimed to be a 10-year resident.”

Cheney's fishing controversy emerged less than a month after announcing her 2014 senate run against GOP incumbent Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.). Early polls from GOP firm Harper polling and left-leaning Public Policy Polling found Enzi with a sizable leads.
