Bradley Manning is now Chelsea Manning
WASHINGTON — The person who got hit with a crushing prison term for opening governments is having gender reassignment surgery soon.
Bradley Manning, through her lawyer, says that she would like to be referred to as Chelsea Manning for the balance of her time on this Earth.
She was recently found guilty of ensuring the American people had a right to know what the government was doing with our tax dollars.
On Wednesday, she was sentenced to 35 years in prison. It is not immediately known whether she plans to appeal the conviction, the jail term or both.
