Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera, is a 59-year-old Republican running for Congress in Miami, hoping to replace retiring Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
Rodriguez Aguilera’s resume can’t be beat in one respect: She’s the only candidate who claims contact with space aliens.
“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,” according to the Miami Herald.
She described “going up” inside the spaceship — though whether it went into space or just hovered around town was left unclear.
“I went in. There were some round seats that were there, and some quartz rocks that controlled the ship — not like airplanes,” Rodriguez Aguilera said.
Rodriguez Aguilera spoke on television in detail about her extraterrestrial experiences, with two videos posted to YouTube.
“She said the alien beings reminded her of the famous statue in Rio de Janeiro, Christ the Redeemer, with arms outstretched,” said the Herald report.
