The Perfect Democratic Candidate For Senate

Well, reading the news today that Chelsea Manning is running for Senate in Maryland.   Why is this a perfect candidate for Senate for the Democratic Party?

  1.  Chelsea Manning is a male that changed gender to a female.
  2. Chelsea Manning is a convicted Felon.   Manning was convicted by a court-martial in 2013 for violating the Espionage Act for sharing almost 750,000 classified or sensitive military and diplomatic documents with WikiLeaks.
  3. Manning’s service in the United States Army ended in a dishonorable discharge.
  4. Manning was in Jail from 2010 to 2017 until the prison sentence was commuted by President Obama.

Why is this such a good candidate?    Gay, Criminal, Felon, dishonorable and gives away the countries secrets.   Sounds like another Clinton to me, therefore a person that Democrats would be proud to have represent them in office in the United States.

How can a felon run for office?    Well it seems Chelsea did her homework and Maryland is one of the few states that you can be a felon and run for the Senate.

To be fair ex-Arizona Sheriff Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court and is running as a Republican for Senate in Arizona.

It is clear to me that there is a huge difference from a conviction of contempt of court and violating the Espionage Act. You won’t see anything about Manning in the news, but probably will continue to see headlines about Arpaio for months to come.

If you wonder why our country is falling apart here is some clear examples for you to see.  In the mean time Manning certainly represents the ideals of the Democratic party.  Just think how this will sound;

The State of Maryland elects its first Democratic gay, criminal felon who was convicted of espionage to the Senate!

The State of Arizona elects Republican ex-Sheriff convicted of contempt of court to the Senate!
