I rarely talk about Scientology but given that I wrote a book on this, Bass's explantion is total b.s. -- Very few Los Angeles-area pols have backed this "church" - and its scandals were well known long before the 2010 event. via @politico
2) The CoS owns a tremendous amount of Los Angeles real estate. They have a modicum of local power and they have long made outreach to politicians as part of a larger strategy to “infiltrate” society, tho to what end - turning everyone u to Scientologists - is kinda dumb.
3) but the kind of speech #KarenBass gave ... I can’t see #KamalaHarris ever giving that speech. It is *highly* disingenuous to claim ignorance about a group all Californians with any power know all about - and often laugh about. Should it matter politically? Eh...
The question journalists should ask here is not whether Bass is a secret Scientologist but why she and her staff were so naive as to somehow buy the CoS phony messaging about civil and “human” rights - the latter being a cover for their anti-psychiatry agenda.
