Washington A group hoping to prove alien contact with Earth has tapped former U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick to help convince the federal government to acknowledge the existence of extraterrestrials.
The Detroit Democrat and mother to former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will help preside over 30 hours of congressional-style hearings April 29 to May 3 at Washington's National Press Club. She did not respond to calls for comment.
Dubbed the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, the public panel pledges to expose evidence of "extraterrestrial vehicles" and a government effort to deny sightings of such craft commonly called UFOs.
Stephen Bassett, executive director of the Bethesda, Md.-based Paradigm Research Group that is hosting the hearings, said he sought former members of Congress to interview dozens of witnesses in a style that harkens back to their work peppering witnesses in congressional hearings.
"I had invitations out to about 50 former members who I thought were likely candidates to participate, and Congresswoman Kilpatrick was the first one to respond," Bassett said.
Kilpatrick became a U.S. representative in 1997 but lost her seat to Hansen Clarke after a 2010 primary challenge.
Kilpatrick will be joined by five other former members of Congress for the hearings. Each will be paid about $20,000 and their expenses will be covered, Bassett said.
Joining Kilpatrick on the bipartisan panel are ex-Sen. Mike Gravel of Alaska (Democrat and more recently Libertarian), as well as former Reps. Lynn Woolsey, D-Calif., Darlene Hooley, D-Ore., Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., and Merrill Cook, R-Utah.
The chosen panel members weren't required to believe in aliens or a government cover-up, but pledged to keep an open mind.
"I made it clear to them that I am unlikely to be persuaded," Utah's Cook told the Salt Lake Tribune. "Extraterrestrial life? I can buy into that as a possibility, but to this day I have not heard or read or seen anything that makes me believe that anyone has encountered one on Earth."
The Paradigm Research Group disagrees. "We've been tracking these (extraterrestrial) crafts for decades," Bassett said. The evidence is "overwhelming beyond any reasonable doubt there's an extraterrestrial presence (and) almost certainly from another planet," he said.
The five days of testimony are to be filmed and included in a documentary.
Bassett said he hopes the hearings will generate enough attention for the government to change its mind.
"There is a government policy of denial," Bassett said. "And once that policy ends, we are going to learn the truth about this phenomenon pretty quickly."

I really do think that we have better things to do than worry about this. This is almost sounds as if it is something meant to divert attention away from other events

I'm thinking they want to start giving them some freebees so when they grant legal status to them, they will pull the democrat lever in the voting booth. I mean. As long as they don't feed on humans...
Well, even then...
After all, everyone's vote should count at least a couple of times. Why not...

The idea of extraterrestrial life has been debated for a very long time. UFO enthusiasts claim that there are reported sightings in the bible. "Chariots of Fire"
To bring this whole matter out right now is ludicrous and I don't care if it comes from the left or the right, it is just a stupid subject to bring up at this time.
How about we get out real world problems handled before we dive into if ET is visiting us. There is the matter of the budget, the excessive spending, North Korea threatening to start throw nukes around, terrorism, and the list just goes on and on and on.
How about we deal with the real problems this country is facing before we dive into speculation about rather there is intelligent alien life around
