In Florida, Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, is looking to replace retiring Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen according to McClatchy. While Republicans have attracted many conspiracy theorists in recent years, Aguilera maybe the first one to publicly claim that she's been abducted by space aliens.
> Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera says she’s been aboard a spaceship crewed by aliens. As in extraterrestrials. Three blond, big-bodied beings — two females, one male — visited her when she was 7 years old and have communicated telepathically with her several times in her life, she says.
Aguilera was interviewed in 2009 about her experience with her space alien abductors. She provided some interesting details.
- There are 30,000 skulls — “different from humans” — in a cave in the Mediterranean island of Malta.
- The world’s “energy center” is in Africa.
- The Coral Castle, a limestone tourist attraction South Miami-Dade, is actually an ancient Egyptian pyramid.
- “God is a universal energy.”
She has friends in high places.
> Rodriguez Aguilera’s daughter is former Republican National Committee Hispanic outreach director Bettina Inclán Agen. Her son-in-law, Jarrod Agen, is Vice President Mike Pence’s deputy chief of staff.
