Congressional candidate Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera says she was abducted by aliens when she was 7 years old.

MIAMI POLITICIAN CLAIMS SHE WAS ABDUCTED BY ALIENS

Rodriguez Aguilera described two female and one male aliens, with big bodies and blonde hair, visiting her and continuing to communicate with her periodically to this day. In a 2009 televised interview, the now 59-year-old described “going up” into a spaceship: I went in. There were some round seats that were there, and some quartz rocks that controlled the ship – not like airplanes,” she recalled.

Two videos of the interview were uploaded to YouTube. The candidate described the beings as reminding her of Brazil’s famed Christ the Redeemer statue, with arms outstretched. She said the aliens told her facts about the Earth, such as that the world’s “energy center” is in Africa, and that the Coral Castle tourist attraction in South Miami-Dade is actually an ancient Egyptian pyramid.

The now 59-year-old is currently running to take the spot of retiring Republican Miami Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. She served as a Doral councilwoman from 2012-2014. The Miami Herald questioned Rodriguez Aguilera about her experiences last week, and the congressional changed her story.

“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,” she said. “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.”
