'Alien abductee' mom runs for Congress

Ms Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, who is running to replace retiring Miami Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, claims to have communicated with aliens telepathically since the unusual incident.

The Miami Herald unearthed a television interview from 2009 in which Congressional candidate Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera claimed to have encountered extraterrestrials when she was 7 years old.

Aguilera recently told The Miami Herald, which reported on her seemingly outlandish claims on Monday, that she's a strong believer that there is life beyond planet Earth. The problem in FL-27 is that it now leans Democrat; it has a Cook rating of D+5, which makes Ros-Lehtinen's retirement a tricky moment for the GOP.

"I went in", she explained.

This story doesn't help Rodriguez Aguilera's case at all.

"For years, people, including presidents like Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter and astronauts, have publicly claimed to have seen unidentified flying objects", she said.

The Miami Herald details how Rodriguez Aguilera appeared (less than a decade ago) in a few Spanish-language YouTube videos (here and there), which saw her confess to having visited on a spaceship with three aliens. The Republican is seeking to fill the seat being vacated by Ros-Lehtinen, who has served in Congress since 1989. "There's going to be people that believe her, and there's going to be people that think she's wacky".

Since her original experience, they have telepathically communicated with her.

"Being a politician, to come out and say that, it's odd", Yabor said. He pointed out that she is trailing among candidates who want to replace Lehtinen.

According to Rodriguez Aguilera, these beings that abducted her bore a resemblance to the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer overlooking the city of Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

Her campaign website describes her as an "entrepreneur, educator and community leader" with "over 30 years of experience in the private and public sectors".

Rodriguez Aguilera's daughter is former Republican National Committee Hispanic outreach director Bettina Inclan Agen. She also teaches leadership at Miami Dade College and runs a consulting firm, Bettinara Enterprises. "Shouldn't she be president or head of the United Nations?"
