Fischer Receives Criticism Over Land Bill

Posted: 05 October, 2012

OMAHA (AP) – The Nebraska Democratic Party is accusing Republican U.S. Senate candidate Deb Fischer of not disclosing her conflict over a piece of land that was later involved in a bill she introduced. Fischer and her husband sued their neighbors, Les and Betty Kime, in 1995 claiming ownership of a parcel of land along the Snake River. The Fischers had used the land – free of charge and with permission from the Kimes – for years to water their cattle. Based on that, the Fischers claimed “adverse possession,” of the land, and lost. Incoming state Democratic Party Chairman Vince Powers said Thursday that a bill by Fischer last year hampered the sale of the Kimes’ land to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
