Former U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, the mother of disgraced felon and former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and herself simultaneously one of the dumbest and most corrupt members of Congress ever sent from Michigan, is being paid to take part in a dog and pony show to publicize a documentary claiming that aliens have visited the earth.
According to the event organizer, she and the five other former members of Congress taking part in what’s called the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure each will receive $20,000 plus expenses for listening to five days of testimony at the National Press Club. “Evidence has been mounting for the last 65 years,” said Stephen Bassett, who is organizing the event scheduled for April 29 through May 3. “We’re going to be holding the hearing that Congress should be holding.”…Bassett also has recruited former U.S. Sen. Mike Gravel, D-Alaska, and former U.S. Reps. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md.; Merrill Cook, R-Utah; Darlene Hooley, D-Ore., and Lynn Woolsey, D-Calif., to take part in the hearings, during which about 40 researchers and other witnesses will provide 30 hours of testimony “about the extraterrestrial issue.”
No report will be issued. Bassett said the hearings are intended to provide footage for an upcoming documentary — to be called “Truth Embargo” — and to generate interest among policy makers and the news media.
I hope my pal Jamila Bey, who loves the National Press Club, will be there to ask some questions.
