WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Chelsea Manning, the transgender U.S. Army soldier who served seven years in military prison for leaking classified data, is seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate seat from Maryland, according to Federal election filings seen on Saturday.

Manning, who was granted clemency by former U.S. President Barack Obama, was released in May from a U.S. military prison in Kansas where she had been serving time for passing secrets to the WikiLeaks website in the biggest breach of classified data in the history of the United States.

American politics is bloody ridiculous. Trump as President for the Republicans & now a traitor attempting to be a Democratic Party Senator.

I'd have thought criminals such as this would have been barred from running?

You'd think that.

On the other hand, that Joe Arpaio dude who was the Sheriff in Arizona is also a convicted felon and he's running for the Senate down there.
