Chelsea Manning To Run For US Senate In Maryland

Chelsea Manning is running for Maryland's Senate 1412018

Chelsea Manning, the transgender woman known as Bradley Manning when she was convicted in 2013 of leaking a trove of classified documents, has filed documents to run for a U.S. Senate seat in Maryland.

Manning would challenge Democrat Ben Cardin, who will face re-election in November. Before leaving the White House, President Barack Obama commuted all but four months of Manning's remaining prison term.

Manning was subsequently released in May from a military prison in Kansas.

"It has been my view that given she went to trial, due process was carried out, she took responsibility for her crime", he continued, "that the sentence she received was very disproportional relative to what other leakers had received".

Race filings demonstrate that Manning, 30, presented her appointment to the Federal Election Commission on Thursday as a Democrat.

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

Manning, 30, who is formerly known as Bradley Manning, was convicted in 2013 of the largest leak of classified documents in US history and was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

Manning could not immediately be reached for comment.
