Experts: Chelsea Manning’s Senate run ‘a statement’

Chelsea Manning’s Senate candidacy — which the disgraced former soldier confirmed yesterday on Twitter — is a statement-making “celebrity” run, not likely to be viable, political experts told the Herald.

Manning, 30, filed her statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.

Known as Bradley Manning at the time of her 2010 arrest, the former Army intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking classified documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
