The Wyoming Republican Party voted 31 to 29 over the weekend to no longer recognize Rep. Liz Cheney as a member of the party.
As reported by BizPacReview, this is the second formal denouncement of Cheney for her criticism of President Trump, this one coming after local GOP officials in about a third of Wyoming’s 23 counties voted to no longer recognize her as a Republican.
In February, Cheney was censured by the state GOP central committee for voting to impeach Trump. In May, she was stripped of her House Republican leadership role over her consistent criticism of Trump. She responded: “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”
Cheney is one of two Republicans picked by Speaker Pelosi to sit on the House January 6th Inquisition, the other being Rep. Adam Kinzinger. The pair won themselves the title “Pelosi Republicans.”
“To further her own personal political agenda, Representative Liz Cheney has not only caused massive disruption, distraction and division within the House Republican Conference, but has also willingly, happily, and energetically joined forces with and proudly pledged allegiance to Democrat Speaker of the House Pelosi, as a means of serving her own personal interests while ignoring the interests, needs and expectations of Wyoming Republicans,” the passed resolution reads.
Jeremy Adler, a spokesman for Cheney, dismissed the move as “laughable.”
“She is bound by her oath to the Constitution,” he said. “Sadly, a portion of the Wyoming GOP leadership has abandoned that fundamental principle and instead allowed themselves to be held hostage to the lies of a dangerous and irrational man.”
