Wyoming mayor: Governor cursed, slammed fists in meeting

The mayor of Wyoming’s capital city says Gov. Mark Gordon “got in her face” and “used his physical presence in an aggressive and threatening manner” during a meeting last week between the two Republicans.

Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr said Monday Gordon slammed his fists on a table and shouted “F— you, mayor” last Friday.

Gordon in a statement apologized for his language but denied using intimidating body language.

Orr says the outburst happened in a meeting about a Taiwanese government delegation possibly visiting during Cheyenne Frontier Days in July.

Orr tells The Associated Press Gordon was upset about the city’s involvement in the visit.

Orr says the meeting witnessed by three Gordon staffers ended on a less confrontational note.

Orr expressed regret about endorsing Gordon in the 2018 election.
