Senator Chelsea Manning? What is this country coming to?

If you don’t recall who Chelsea Manning is, she (he) is a former U.S. Army soldier that leaked thousands of classified and sensitive military and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks.  Chelsea Manning was then known as Bradley Manning and was charged with violations of the Espionage Act  and other offenses including aiding the enemy.  Found guilty of 17 of the original charges, he was then sentenced to 35 years at a maximum security prison.

Well, the story doesn’t end there.  It seems that there are three new facets to the Bradley Manning story.  I can’t comprehend how this story is playing out and how this society is allowing it to happen.

While serving time at the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Bradley Manning made the surgical transition from a man to a woman.  Paid for by the generosity of the American taxpayer.  It is amazing to me that a person convicted of treason and held in confinement could ask for and receive the costly surgical procedures without having to pay for them.  To what do we owe this to someone who betrayed their country?

Not only did we pay for this transition but in all his wisdom and contrary to the fact that Manning’s request for clemency did not fill into the usual criteria President Barack Hussein Obama commuted Chelsea (Bradley) Manning’s sentence.

Now, on January 11, 2018 Chelsea (Bradley) Manning announced that he(she) filed to run for the U.S. Senate as a Democrat in the state of Maryland.  How can a traitor be recognized as a legitimate candidate for the United States Senate?  Canada would not allow her entry due to his/her criminal record but an act of treason does not bar entry into the United States Senate?

Maybe I should have posted this under the Humor category.
