About The Event
A party to highlight the absurdity and have fun at the expense of a website that anonymously rates and labels Wyoming legislators who hold differing views, will be thrown Sept. 14 in Casper by the Natrona County Republican Party.
“We are calling out whoever is behind WyoRINO.com, to show up and openly discuss issues instead of hiding behind an anonymous website throwing rocks,” said Joe MacGuire, chairman of the Natrona County Republican Party. The anonymous site, WyoRINO.com, rates legislators based on a narrow selection of 10 legislative votes out of hundreds and hundreds, and labels them as RINOs, or Republicans in Name Only, if the legislator does not perfectly match the site’s criteria on every issue. “The fact it is anonymous is the height of cowardice,” MacGuire said.
“We don’t expect the secret rock-thrower will show up,” MacGuire says, “but no worries, we are going to have a lot of fun at their expense either way.”
Rod Miller, humor and political columnist for Cowboy State Dailly, will emcee the event. Several legislators who have been targeted by the site will also attend.
The fundraising event will feature a wine and a silent auction to benefit the Natrona County Republican Party. Tickets are available online at natronagop.com.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
Ticket includes admission to the event and dinner. A cash bar will be available and there will be a wine auction during dinner.$32.00
