Liz Cheney loses Wyoming primary; concession speech may have violated campaign finance law

Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney’s concession speech following her projected loss to Harriet Hageman on Tuesday may have been in violation of campaign finance rules.

The violation involved her production being filmed for a candidate as a friend, which could be considered an in-kind contribution outside of the FEC’s rules.

“CNN’s Jeff Zeleny reported earlier Tuesday evening that Cheney’s anticipated losing speech would be set against a dramatic backdrop and filmed by James Goldston, the former ABC News president who is also advising the January 6 Committee,” Breitbart News reported.

“Goldston’s services, including his crew, are probably worth tens of thousands of dollars. Moreover, Zeleny reported that Goldston is filming Cheney as a favor β€” as a ‘friend.’ Hence his contribution would be an in-kind contribution to Cheney,” it added.

The interesting end to Cheney’s primary battle may add to the already strong drama taking place.

The congresswoman may also have a few more moves ahead of the November election as she continues her work on the Jan. 6 House select committee.
