JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Records show U.S. Senate candidate Liz Cheney has paid $220 after she was ticketed for buying a Wyoming resident fishing license when she hadn’t lived in Wyoming for a full year, as required.

Cheney and her husband lived in Virginia but bought a house in May 2012 in Wilson, Wyo. She said Wednesday she got the resident fishing license a few months later, “just in case” she wanted to fish during an outing with wounded veterans. She said she hadn’t realized she needed to have lived in Wyoming the previous 12 months to get one.

Resident licenses cost $24. A nonresident one costs $92.

The Associated Press reports Cheney this month posted a $220 bond to cover a $180 fine, plus court fees and costs.
