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.

$20,000 plus expenses for one week's "work"???? Would those be taxpayer dollars by any chance?? Geez Louise, the insanity spreads more with each passing day.

Wonder how many starving children that $20k would feed? It would at least pay for a couple of White House tours!

Hope ET phones home soon cuz this is a little expensive!
