A Florida politician vying for a seat in Congress once claimed to have been an alien abductee and recalled vivid details of her remarkable encounter.
The Miami Herald has revealed the incredible story of Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera, who is hoping to fill a soon-to-be vacant spot in the U.S. House of Representatives for Florida's 27th congressional district.
In a pair of 2009 interviews, which were found on YouTube, the aspiring Congresswoman shared her experiences interacting with aliens and riding aboard an ET spaceship.
Beyond the abduction experience, she also shared some strange insights which she allegedly learned from the ETs, such as that there is a cave on the island of Malta which contains 30,000 alien skulls.
Lest one think that Aguilera is simply a fringe, third-party candidate who entered the race aiming to raise awareness about her abduction, they would likely be surprised to find out that is not the case at all.
In fact, she is actually running as a Republican, has been previously elected to office in the city of Doral, and has family members that have worked with the GOP on the national level.
Additionally, Aguilera may not be too thrilled about the newfound publicity surrounding her alien experience as the story is already generating nationwide headlines and, no doubt, causing quite the headache at her campaign headquarters.
When the Miami Herald attempted to get a response from her regarding the revelations, Aguilera was rather circumspect, noting that Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan had seen UFOs and that the Vatican seemingly endorsed the possibility of aliens.
"I join the majority of Americans who believe that there must be intelligent life in the billions of planets and galaxies in the universe," may have been the most forthcoming part of Aguilera's statement to the newspaper.
Considering the fantastic nature of her story, it's highly unlikely that this will be the last time that Aguilera is asked to expound on her experiences.
Unfortunately, political pundits in Florida are already expressing concern that the 'ET issue' will derail her campaign by hurting her image with the public and costing her donors.
Should she somehow manage to overcome the stigma attached the phenomenon and prevail in the election, Aguilera would become the first-ever alien abductee elected to Congress.
That is, of course, as far as the public is aware, since more than a few folks in Washington certainly raise suspicions.
