PoliticsYes Chelsea Manning Is Running For Senate in Maryland Written by Matt Keeley

Manning, 25, was acquitted last month of the most serious charge he faced - aiding the enemy - but was convicted of multiple other counts, including violations of the Espionage Act, for copying and disseminating classified military field reports, State Department cables, and assessments of detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Chelsea Manning, one of the most well-known US whistleblowers - jailed for leaking military documents on abuses in Iraq and Afghanistan - confirmed her bid for the US Senate, releasing a campaign video and calling for donations.

Manning, who served prison time for leaking classified information, filed to run as a Democratic candidate for Senate in Maryland. "We need to fix this", Manning says. We need to stop asking them to give us our rights. Manning came out as a transgender woman in 2013. "We don't need them anymore, we can do better".

Manning also tweeted a link for campaign contributions.

During her imprisonment, Manning battled for and won the right to start hormone treatment. She has been registered to vote at the apartment in North Bethesda since mid-August, according to the Maryland State Board of Elections.

Manning has now gone from prison to U.S. senatorial candidate in less than a year during which she often made headlines, as the fame and infamy she gained by leaking a trove of classified documents follows her after release. "The Federalist's Senior Writer and co-author of End of Discussion, Mary Katharine Ham, wrote at the time that "[Manning] was found guilty in 2010 on 20 of 22 counts in Seven years into a 35-year sentence, Manning received a commutation from President Obama.
