Florida has a U.S. senator who flew aboard the Space Shuttle.
A candidate from Miami can go one better: Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera says she’s been aboard a spaceship too. However, this one was crewed by aliens.
Beings — two females, 1 male — visited her when she was 7 years old and have communicated telepathically with her several times in her life, she says. (Sen. Bill Nelson served as a payload officer aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia in 1986. All seven people aboard were from Earth. As far as is known.)
Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, a Republican who is running to replace retiring Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, recounted her experience with the ETs through a 2009 television interview.

She explained “going up” within the spaceship — though if it went into space or simply hovered around town was left unclear.
“I went. There were some round Seats that were there, and a few quartz rocks that controlled the boat — not like planes,” Rodriguez Aguilera said.
In two separate videos posted to YouTube years back, one by neighborhood Spanish-language channel America TeVe and another by a political critic with the user name DoralGirl26, Rodriguez Aguilera spoke on television in detail about her extraterrestrial experiences. She said the alien beings reminded her of the famous statue in Rio de Janeiro, Christ the Redeemer, with arms outstretched.
Among the things she said she found out from the aliens:
▪ There are 30,000 skulls — “different from humans” — in a cave at the Mediterranean island of Malta.
▪ The planet’s “energy center” is in Africa.
▪ The Coral Castle, a limestone tourist attraction South Miami-Dade, is an ancient Egyptian pyramid.
▪ “God is a universal energy.”
She also stated that the aliens had Mentioned Isis, though she did not clarify if they meant the terrorist organization or the ancient Egyptian goddess.

The Miami Herald asked Rodriguez Aguilera about her experiences Friday. She responded with a statement that waxed astronomical, but sadly failed to mention close encounters of any kind.
“For many years people, including Presidents like Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter and astronauts have publicly claimed to have seen unidentified flying objects and scientists like Stephen Hawking and institutions such as the Vatican have stated that there are billions of galaxies in the universe and we are probably not alone,” she said. “I personally am a Christian and have a strong belief in God, I join the vast majority of Americans who think that there should be intelligent life in the billions of planets and galaxies in the world.”
Rodriguez Aguilera was a Doral Councilwoman from 2012-14 and served as the city’s first economic developer. She functions as an entrepreneur and has taught leadership seminars in local universities.
She announced her candidacy in Late August and raised about $10,000 during the latest fundraising quarter, she said — a paltry amount she attributed to halting her effort during Hurricane Irma.
Rodriguez Aguilera’s daughter is Former Republican National Committee Hispanic outreach director Bettina Inclán Agen. Her son-in-law, Jarrod Agen, is Vice President Mike Pence’s deputy chief of staff.
Miami lawyer Rick Yabor, a Frequent political commentator in Spanish-language media, said Friday the Rodriguez Aguilera’s account could damage her congressional campaign. Miami-Dade Commissioner Bruno Barreiro andformer school board member and Miami-Dade County mayoral candidate Raquel Regalado, both far better known than Rodriguez Aguilera, are also running in the Republican primary.
“Being a politician, to come out And say that, it’s odd,” Yabor said. “She got into specifics that are not very mainstream. Someone who’s running for Congress — you’ve got to raise a good deal of money. A donor might have second thoughts.
“Miami politics are unusual,” Yabor said. “This one takes it to a new level.”
