/int/ 43465244: Chelsea Manning files to run for U.S. Senate in Maryland

stevenfabre Avatar

Chelsea Manning, the transgender former Army private who was convicted of passing sensitive government documents to Wikileaks, has filed to run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, according to federal election filings.

Manning, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment, would be challenging Ben Cardin, who has served two terms in the Senate. He was first elected in 2007.

Manning, 30, who is formerly known as Bradley Manning, was convicted in 2013 of the largest leak of classified documents in U.S. history and was sentenced to 35 years in prison. Last year, then President Obama commuted Manning’s sentence and she was released from a military prison.

Say what you will about the trannies, but that armband has a very relaxing color scheme to it.

Like just looking at it is almost hypnotizing.

Obama commuted his sentence not pardoned. He is still a felon. The article says that felons can run for senate though.
