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. politi.co/3gxmRin 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.
