Officials of the Church of Scientology in New York City claimed they had received a bomb threat and the federal government subsequently indicted her for sending it. Then the government charged her with perjury for denying it.

Cooper's friends, family, lawyers and publisher have alleged in interviews and in a court suit that it was the Scientologists who mounted this campaign, an allegation th church vehemently denies.

According to informed sources, FBI agents have found in church records evidence that the Scientologists framed Cooper by stealing her stationery and sending the bomb threat to themselves.
