Liz Cheney Husband Fuels Wyomingites' Carpetbagger Suspicions

The husband of Republican Senate challenger Liz Cheney is registered to vote in both Wyoming and Virginia — despite signing an oath saying he wasn't on the rolls anywhere but Wyoming, Politico reported Wednesday.

Washington, D.C., lawyer Phil Perry registered in Wyoming in March and was asked if he was on the rolls anywhere else so a withdrawal request could be sent, Teton County's clerk, Sherry Daigle, told the website.

"He signed an oath saying he was not currently registered anywhere else," Daigle said.

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, who is running against incumbent Republican Sen. Mike Enzi in the August 2014 GOP primary, has been dogged by accusations that she's a carpetbagger.

Cheney, who moved with her family from Virginia last year, is no longer registered in Fairfax County, Va. But her husband still shows up on the database at the Office of Elections in Fairfax county, under the couple's address in the wealthy D.C. suburb of McLean, Va., Politico reported.

A separate voter file shows Perry cast a Virginia ballot in last year's presidential election, Politico reported.

Perry works at the Washington law firm of Latham and Watkins and was general counsel at the Department of Homeland Security while Dick Cheney was vice president, Politico noted.

"Phil is registered to vote in Wyoming and has notified Virginia that he is registered in Wyoming," Cheney campaign spokeswoman Brittany Wells told Politico. "He has not voted in Virginia since he registered in Wyoming."

Cheney got into hot water in August when the Casper Star Tribune reported she was improperly listed as a 10-year resident of Wyoming on a fishing license.

She responded at the time that the "clerk must have made a mistake."

More recently, she and her lesbian sister Mary have been publicly feuding over same-sex marriage.
