WYOMING: Liz Cheney Tries To Squash Ad Claiming She Supports Gay Marriage

US Senate candidate Liz Cheney is super-upset about a campaign ad that claims she secretly supports same-sex marriage. And she wants that shit off the air.
Cheney's office sent letters to cable operators and TV stations in the Mountain West region and demanded the ad be removed from broadcast zones in the Denver, Cheyenne and Casper markets. The Cheney camp claimed the ad inaccurately portrayed the candidate as a supporter of gay marriage. Legal counsel for the American Principles Fund, the conservative super PAC funding the ad, sent a rebuttal to operators and stations that received a letter from the Cheney campaign. The super PAC’s legal counsel claimed every aspect of the ad was correct and all facts were available for the public to see. “In making these statements, the (Cheney letter) attempts to divert the station's attention away from the actual text of the Advertisement, all of which is entirely supported by the public record,” wrote American Principles Fund attorney Douglas Chalmers Jr. “Indeed, the principle (sic) source for the advertisement is Ms. Cheney's own recorded words, as broadcast on national television.”
I do SO hate gay marriage! Ask my gay-married sister!
