by at . Comments

Mary Cheney, the openly gay daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, married her longtime partner Heather Poe earlier today.

Cheney spokeswoman Kara Ahern confirmed the nuptials.

“Our daughter Mary and her long time partner, Heather Poe, were married today in Washington, DC,” the Cheneys said in a statement.

Mary (left) and Heather "have been in a committed relationship for many years, and we are all delighted that they were able to take advantage of the opportunity to have that relationship recognized,” Dick and his wife Lynne added.

“Mary and Heather and their children are very important and much loved members of our family and we wish them every happiness.”

As V.P., Dick Cheney regularly broke ranks with the Republican party and president George W. Bush with his support of same-sex marriage.

Poe and Mary Cheney have two children: Cheney gave birth to their son in 2007, and their daughter in 2009. They live together in Virginia.

Congratulations to the whole family!

I also witnessed the absolute disrespectful way the Gays conducted themselves in the Whitehouse. Obama hand picked these people to come in and disrespect the Leaders of our Country. I have never seen anything so pathetic in all my life. I dont know any gays but my view towards them and Obama will be ever lasting. I am appalled. My God what has happened to our country.

Good for her and Happy on them. They were able to do what the rest of the civilized world have been able to do for years. One question. Was Rush Limbaugh there or was the convicted FELON off all hopped up on OXY again?
