Rep. Liz Cheney has led the attack against Jan 6 insurrectionists, doing a masterful job as part of the House Committee panel, even if it hasn’t made her very popular back home. She’s currently facing an uphill primary battle against a Trump-backed challenger in what is the reddest state in the country, meaning whoever wins the primary is inevitably the new House Representative for Wyoming-at-Large in Congress next year. While Cheney is largely lagging in the polls, there’s a new scandal behind her primary opponent – Harriet Hageman.

Hageman has been raking in some considerable donations against her opponent, as the GOP’s leadership and Trumpers alike are determined to see Cheney out of power. The problem, however, is that these large donations seem to be coming from a single source – a shell company known as Snow Goose LLC donated $50,000 to her opponent. The problem is that no one really knows who they are – all while they make donations to a super PAC called Wyoming Values – a clear violation of the straw donor ban outlined in the Federal Election Campaign Act.


By law, Hageman’s campaign shouldn’t even be allowed to accept it. It’s obvious that whatever Cheney knows, her fellow Republicans clearly want her gone from any leadership role in the House, even if it means committing more crimes to keep her from exposing their own. It may be tempting for some of you to contribute to Cheney’s campaign, but this is a good time to note that there are a number of Democrats in close House races we need to win that would be a better way to spend your money. In the meantime, however, there is a glimmer of hope that Cheney will prevail in her own primary race.
