WASHINGTON -- U.S. Rep. Barbara Cubin, R-Wyo., said Tuesday that in a shuffle of paperwork she accidentally might have signed a document that listed her as cosponsor of a bill that would sell off millions of acres of public lands in the West to raise money for hurricane relief.

The bill would require the federal government to quickly sell off 15 percent of national forest lands and 15 percent of lands managed by Interior Department agencies, except national parks, to raise funds for Hurricane Katrina and other disaster relief.

On Monday, Cubin said she was mistakenly listed as a cosponsor, but it had been unclear how her name came to be on the bill. Although she had discussed the bill with its author, U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., Cubin decided it was a bad idea and had no intention of cosponsoring it, her spokesman said.

"If (her signature is there), we can only surmise that what happened is the wrong piece of paper got signed at a weekly Members' lunch meeting when a number of bills and letters get passed around to sign while speakers are giving their presentations," Cubin spokesman Joe Milczewski said.
Yeah, you mistakenly signed it Babs....I'm sure.....aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhh!

1. ugh. i don't know how the good people of wyoming got suckered by her
i could never stand her. Not unusual for a member of wyoming's delegation, but even so, she's always made me bristle.
