Valerie Plame Wilson knocks Cheneys

(CNN) - Former CIA covert operations officer Valerie Plame Wilson, whose identity was revealed during a 2003 scandal regarding intelligence-gathering prior to the Iraq war, took a swipe Wednesday at a group backing GOP Senate candidate Liz Cheney.

Plame Wilson tweeted out a New York Times article about Cheney's father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, who's speaking at an upcoming fundraiser in Washington for a new super PAC that supports his daughter's Senate bid.

"This article is the epitome of Washington insiderdom," she wrote.

The former Vice President, who Plame Wilson accuses of being involved in the leaking of her identity, has been supportive of Liz Cheney's bid against incumbent GOP Sen. Mike Enzi in Wyoming.

In October, Cheney predicted his daughter would win, and he came to her defense in a recent public spat between Liz and her sister, Mary, over their differences on same-sex marriage.

Mary is a lesbian who married a woman last year, while Liz says she opposes same-sex marriage.
