Republican Florida congressional candidate Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera has some constituents raising their eyebrows after making claims about having been abducted by stylish extra-terrestrials.
According to Jezebel, Aguilera is running to replace Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who plans on retiring at the end of the year. Although she has served as a city council member in Doral City, her positions are difficult to find on her official websites and pages due to her commentary on the bizarre beliefs about alien abductions, which is now going viral.
On a Spanish-language television program, Aguilera describes the experience of entering the spaceship, saying that the aliens were “female journalists with long, lustrous blonde hair... I went in. There were some round seats that were there, and some quartz rocks that controlled the ship — not like airplanes."
Aguilera went on to describe the surreal conversations she had with the otherworldly beings, saying they discussed the nature of God and "an island with 30,000 skulls in a Mediterranean cave."
She later offered the following statement on her comments: "For years people, including Presidents like Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter and astronauts have publicly claimed to have seen unidentified flying objects and scientists like Stephen Hawking and institutions like the Vatican have stated that there are billions of galaxies in the universe and we are probably not alone. I personally am a Christian and have a strong belief in God, I join the majority of Americans who believe that there must be intelligent life in the billions of planets and galaxies in the universe."
