Ex-Mich. congresswoman presides over ET hearings

The 30 hours of congressional-style hearings kicked off Monday and are scheduled to run through Friday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Those testifying hope to prove that aliens contact Earth — and that the government is trying to keep it secret.

Kilpatrick said she's been researching the topic and is "looking forward to the week's activities."

Kilpatrick, who is being paid $20,000 plus expenses, will chair the panel today.

Kilpatrick is a Democrat who served in Congress from 1997-2011. Her son, ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, is awaiting sentencing after being convicted on two dozen counts of corruption.
