Via a reader tip comes news that Chelsea Manning is going to run for the US Senate in Maryland:
Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst convicted of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks, confirmed Sunday that she’s running in Maryland for a Senate seat.
“Yup, we’re running for Senate,” Manning tweeted three days after she filed her statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.
The tweet also included a campaign video indicating her intention to run in the 2018 Maryland Democratic primary and was followed by a tweet seeking donations to her campaign.

I have a hard time believing the Democrats would allow a traitor and convicted felon like Manning to get elected to the Senate. Manning is basically a Cindy Sheehan like figure who thinks she is more important than what she really is. When Sheehan ran for Congress she was crushed by the Democrats, I expect the same thing will happen to Manning considering she has already used up her political usefulness.
