Few tears were shed when Liz Cheney lost her re-election bid to another GOP challenger. Cheney’s time in D.C. was marked by treason against her own party. She joined a handful of Republicans to attack former President Trump. But she went farther than most, helping Pelosi frame him as an enemy of the country.
The folks back home rewarded her with a swift kick out the door. But don’t feel sorry for her. As she leaves Congress, it has been revealed just how much she profited from “serving” the public. In reality, she served herself, a shocking increase in personal wealth.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) will vacate her congressional seat on Tuesday after becoming a wealthy woman during her six years of serving Wyoming…
Breitbart News reported in August that Cheney’s net worth ballooned from an estimated $7 million when she first took office in 2017 to possibly more than $44 million in 2020. Depending on the specifics of her latest financial disclosure form, Cheney’s net worth could have skyrocketed up to 600 percent in Congress.
That’ll turn your stomach. After six years in public office, Liz Cheney became even more wealthy than she was before she was elected. According to reports, she was worth around $7 million before she was elected in 2017.
But as she leaves office after only six years, some reports indicate she could be worth as much as $44 million. That is an increase of about 600%. Wow, that must be nice, huh? How many folks in Wyoming can boast that kind of windfall in just six years?
How was she able to achieve just a jump in wealth? Congress members do earn a nice salary, but not that much. Perhaps it has to do with how Cheney catered to the D.C. swamp while she was there. She played the party of a good Washington insider, making sure all the right special interests were happy.
And, in turn, she was able to expand her wealth. Don’t be surprised to her if she only gets richer in the coming years. After giving out many favors to powerful lobbyists in Congress, she will get a nice golden parachute on her way out.
She might join a think tank or a cable news network. She will publish a book for millions of dollars, whether anyone reads it or not.
That’s what you get when you betray Americans for your own profit.
- Liz Cheney increased her wealth while in Congress by 600%.
