The parents of Liz and Mary Cheney are out with a statement seeking to quell an emerging controversy between daughters Liz, who has opposed gay marriage as a Wyoming Senate candidate, and Mary, who is herself in a gay marriage. In a just-released statement, former vice president Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, say Liz Cheney has been consistent in her position. They also appear to disagree with comments made by Mary Cheney's wife, who suggested Liz Cheney's private actions toward her and Mary Cheney suggest a more pro-gay rights attitude than she has taken as a candidate.
