ET's: The Truth Is Out There

Ex-U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick of Detroit and six other former Congress members are presiding over hearings on the existence of extraterrestrials.

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

Those testifying hope to prove that aliens have contacted Earth - and that the government is trying to keep it secret.

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

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