Former Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy has paid his phone bill.
Sheehy has reimbursed the state $500 for thousands of calls made on his state-issued cell phone to four women. None of the women was his wife. Those calls eventually led to his resignation, demanded by Gov. Dave Heineman after he learned of Sheehy’s frequent calls to the women while on duty.
Sheehy’s wife filed for divorce in 2012. The divorce became final April 30th.
The governor’s office confirms that Sheehy wrote a $500 check to the state February 25th.
Sheehy, a Republican, had been the front-runner for the 2014 gubernatorial race until he resigned.
Heineman chose former state senator and University of Nebraska Regent Lavon Heidemann in February as Sheehy’s replacement.
