UFO believers pay former members of Congress to listen to 30 hours of testimony about UFOs
The hearing lasts through Friday at the National Press Club and will be the basis for a documentary on UFOs. For her service — listening to about 30 hours of congressional-style testimony — the private group will pay her $20,000 plus expenses.Kilpatrick said she'll await the evidence before drawing conclusions on whether there's a government effort to hide existence of flying saucers."I'm waiting to hear," Kilpatrick told The Detroit News as she settled on the panel before the hearings kicked off. "I'm not making any of those kinds of statements."It's good to be here. We're excited. I've been reading and watching and so I'm looking forward to the week's activities."Joining Kilpatrick on the bipartisan panel are ex-Sen. Mike Gravel of Alaska (Democrat and more recently Libertarian), as well as former Reps. Lynn Woolsey, D-Calif., Darlene Hooley, D-Ore., Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., and Merrill Cook, R-Utah.
