Liz Cheney, who is seeking a Senate seat in Wyoming, has been fined for making a false statement to get a fishing license in the state.

Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, paid $220 in a Wyoming court after receiving a citation stating she "fail[ed] to meet residency requirements as required," reports the Jackson Hole News & Guide.

The figure includes a $180 fine plus costs.

The citation alleges the infraction took place on Aug. 3, 2012 at West Bank Anglers, near Jackson Hole, violating a Wyoming statute that 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." Violation constitutes a high misdemeanor.

Wyoming resident fishing and game licenses require the purchaser to sign a residency statement saying, "Under penalty of prosecution I swear that the information given by me above and below my signature is true and correct. I swear under penalty of prosecution that I am a Wyoming resident….and have domiciled in Wyoming for not less than one (1) year and have not claimed residence anywhere for any purpose during the one year immediately preceding the purchase of this license."

Cheney, 47, said she bought the license in 2012 after buying a house in Wyoming earlier in the year. A resident license costs $24 compared to $92 for a nonresident one.

Cheney, who moved to northwest Wyoming from Virginia, announced in July that she will run against three-term GOP Sen. Mike Enzi in next year's Republican primary.
