“Congressional-Syle” hearings on the existence of space aliens will be held this week at the National Press Club. Six former congressman have signed up for THIRTY HOURS of testimony on “the possible existence of extraterrestrials and be recorded for a documentary film. Around three dozen researchers and academics are expected to testify.”
(I’d prefer an X-Files Marathon, but whatever…)
The bipartisan roster of former congressmen are:
Participants will include ex-Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska), and ex-Reps. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-Mich.), Darlene Hooley (D-Ore.), Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.) and Merrill Cook (R-Utah).
The event is being sponsored by Paradigm research who is (I KID YOU NOT) “a lobbying group for alien research.”
According to the Detroit News, the organization is paying Kilpatrick $20,000 plus expenses for her participation, although the former congresswoman said she has always been interested in the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
