Nebraska Democrats Claim Deb Fischer Has Conflict Of Interest

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 elderly 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, a legal term akin to squatter's rights. The Fischers 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.
