Chelsea Manning files to run for US Senate

Chelsea Manning files to run for US Senate

The transgender former Army officer who was convicted of leaking classified documents filed her statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.

The election document lists Manning's address as that of a luxury apartment tower in North Bethesda. 1st Class Bradley Manning, a USA military intelligence analyst.

That would range her against Ben Cardin, the senior senator from Maryland who has served since 2007.

Manning, an Oklahoma native, had previously lived in Montgomery County before enlisting in the Army and eventually facing a court-martial for leaking classified information.

Manning would be taking on U.S. Sen.

Manning was released from prison early after serving seven years of a 35-year sentence - the longest prison term given to an American leaker.

President Barack Obama granted clemency to Manning before leaving office.

She came out as transgendered shortly after her sentencing, but the military denied her request for hormone therapy treatment while behind bars.

Manning most recently attacked law enforcement on National Law Enforcement Day.

"Police kill hundreds of people every year with absolute impunity", Manning continued.
