Ex-CIA spy Valerie Plame is running for Congress

Ex-CIA spy Valerie Plame is running for an open House seat in New Mexico.

Plame, rumored to run, made it official Wednesday when she filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to run as a Democrat in the state’s 3rd congressional district.

She will run for the seat currently held by Democratic Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, who is running for Senate in 2020.

Plame’s identity as a CIA operative was leaked by an official in President George W. Bush’s administration in 2003 in an effort to discredit her then-husband, Joe Wilson.

Wilson is a former diplomat who criticized Bush’s decision to invade Iraq.
