According to Shirley MacLaine, Dennis Kucinich saw a UFO near her home in Graham, Washington….

Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich has claimed to have seen a UFO, according to Shirley MacLaine in her new book, “Sage-Ing While Age-Ing.”

Kucinich “had a close sighting over my home in Graham, Washington, when I lived there,” the actress, a close Kucinich friend, wrote. “Dennis found his encounter extremely moving. The smell of roses drew him out to my balcony where, when he looked up, he saw a gigantic triangular craft, silent, and observing him.

“It hovered, soundless, for 10 minutes or so, and sped away with a speed he couldn’t comprehend. He said he felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind.”

Kucinich’s people won’t comment on the incident- probably because they don’t want him to come across as (more of) a kook.

Which is probably a good idea, even though UFO sightings are pretty common- especially in Washington State.

The National UFO Reporting Center has over 2500 UFO Reports for Washington State including at least 10 in the Graham area.
