DICK CHANEY DAUGHTER MARY GETS MARRIED ARE YOU HAPPY FOR HER? Mary Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, marries partner, Heather Poe
Mary Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has married her longtime partner Heather Poe.
The openly gay couple tied the knot in Washington, D.C. on Friday.
"Very happy to announce that as of this morning, Heather and I are legally married (at least in DC), 20 years to the day after our first date," Cheney reportedly told friends on Facebook.
The District of Columbia and six states -- Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont -- have legalized same-sex marriage.
“Mary and Heather have been in a committed relationship for many years, and we are delighted that they were able to take advantage of the opportunity to have that relationship recognized,” the former Republican vice president and his wife, Lynne, said in a statement provided to The Daily Caller. “Mary and Heather and their children are very important and much loved members of our family and we wish them every happiness.”
Dick Cheney has long championed gay marriage. He reportedly reached out to Maryland’s GOP legislators in February to urge their support for a marriage equality bill in that state.
Mary Cheney, 43, is the younger of the former vice president's two daughters. She and Poe live in Virginia with their two children.
