Chelsea Manning files to run for US Senate in Maryland

Chelsea Manning files to run for US Senate in Maryland

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.

According to federal election filings, Manning completed the paperwork on January 5, and it was delivered on January 11.

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

The 30-year-old Manning listed a North Bethesda address in her FEC filing.

In 2010, Manning was arrested in the largest breach of classified data in US history.

During her time in prison, Manning became a symbol of transgender rights when the LGBTQ community rallied around her when she went on a hunger strike over her gender confirmation treatment.

Manning was convicted of leaking sensitive military information to Wikileaks in 2010 but had her prison sentence commuted by President Obama before he left office.

Showtime later this year will broadcast XY Chelsea, a documentary about whistleblower Chelsea Manning.

Manning was sentenced to 35 years behind bars, and a day later released a statement explaining that she identified as female.
