    Chelsea Manning Files for Senate Run in Maryland

    WASHINGTON — Chelsea Manning, the former Army private convicted of disclosing classified information, has filed to run for Senate in Maryland, according to federal election filings.

    Ms. Manning, who was found guilty of leaking more than 700,000 government files to WikiLeaks in 2013, would face Senator Benjamin L. Cardin in the Democratic primary race this year. Mr. Cardin is Maryland’s senior senator and the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

    Obimbo commuted his/her/its sentence he didn't pardon it, so wouldn't it's felony conviction still be intact and bar it from holding office?

    One would think so, but, regardless it’s just a stunt. She/it doesn’t stand a snowballs chance in hell of getting a party nomination, much less elected.

    At first I didn't think that he/she was old enough to run, per the U.S. Constitution.

    Then I checked - requirement is 30 y.o., and Manning turned 30 about 3-4 wks ago.

    Traitor, convicted felon, transgender, Democrat ... yeah, perfect for the Maryland Dem primary.

    When I first read this thread title, I thought for a moment
    that it was the Clinton brat that was running. Either way
    the state of Maryland loses.

    If I had a gun to my head and had to choose between a transsexual traitor and a Clinton, I’d probably have go with the fruitloop traitor. By that I mean the transsexual, I can understand how that could be taken either way.

    The Oklahoma native had planned to move to Maryland, where she has an aunt. She has been registered to vote at the apartment in North Bethesda since mid-August, according to the Maryland State Board of Elections.

    Her recent move would not affect a Senate bid. To run for that office, a person must be at least 30 years old, a U.S. citizen for nine years and an inhabitant of the state at election time, according to the Maryland State Board of Elections. A felony conviction does not appear to preclude a run.

    Manning is yet to file for the primary with the state elections board, which she must do in person by Feb. 27, according to the board’s website.

    With any luck, some military hurt/killed by his/her security betrayal may get even with him/her while on the public campaign trail ... Maybe. Maybe not.
