Congressional candidate claims aliens took her on a spaceship  

Just when you thought you’d heard it all, now there’s this politician who swears blind she’s been aboard a spaceship crewed by extraterrestrials.

And she’s running for Congress — no kidding.

From the Miami Herald:

Florida has a U.S. senator who once flew aboard the Space Shuttle.

A congressional candidate from Miami can go one better: Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera says she’s been aboard a spaceship too. But this one was crewed by aliens. As in extraterrestrials.

Three blond, big-bodied beings — two females, one male — visited her when she was 7 years old and have communicated telepathically with her several times in her life, she says. (Sen. Bill Nelson served as payload officer aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia in 1986. All seven people aboard were from Earth. As far as is known.)

Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, a Republican who is running to replace retiring Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, recounted her experience with the ETs during a 2009 television interview.

“She described ‘going up’ inside the spaceship,” adding that unlike airplanes, the spaceship was controlled by “some quartz rocks.”

Yeah, right.
