Actress and New Age enthusiast Shirley MacLaine says in her new book that Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich once saw a UFO from her home in Graham, Wash.
"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," she writes in "Sage-Ing While Age-Ing," according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
MacLaine says of the Ohio congressman, "He said he felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind." Neither Kucinich's campaign nor congressional staff returned calls to the newspaper for comment.
Kucinich and MacLaine have been friends for many years, according to the newspaper. She is the godmother of his daughter and attended his 2005 wedding.
