Mary Cheney, the lesbian daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney, is pregnant with her second child.
The staunch Republican, 40, and her partner Heather Poe expect the baby in mid-to-late November, according to a source close to the Cheney family.
(I am personally thrilled to think the child might arrive on my birthday, and am hoping Mary and Heather will name the baby for me. “Geek Porn Girl Cheney-Poe” has a real ring to it.)
The source also reported that Cheney will be leaving the communications firm where she has worked to take maternity leave and to begin a new consulting firm with her sister, Liz.
Liz Cheney Perry was recently very visible and audible, beating the conservative drum like a wind-up monkey, on a PostBama media campaign with her father.
Cheney and Poe’s first child, Samuel David Cheney, was born in May of 2007.
