Church of Scientology works behind the scenes against Clearwater Marine Aquarium - 2015-01-03
Does the Church of Scientology just want downtown Clearwater all to itself?
That's the question people are asking now that Scientology, the biggest property owner downtown, is working behind the scenes to fight the Clearwater Marine Aquarium's plans to move there.
The campaign has become increasingly aggressive. The church has brought in an accountant, an economist and an investigative reporter to dig into the nonprofit aquarium's financial projections and its animal-care history, according to aquarium supporters.
