Help us dig through this financial disclosure by Scientology's sneaky front groups - 2018-03-18
Once again our great tipsters came through with a cool new document, and we're looking forward to our smart commenters digging through it for us.
What we're talking about is the newly available 2016 tax return from the Association for Better Living and Education. ABLE is a Scientology entity that runs many of the various sneaky front groups that try to forward L. Ron Hubbard's ideas in schools (Applied Scholastic), in drug rehab (Narconon), in prisons (Criminon), and for handing out anodyne little booklets to convince the public that Scientology has an actual moral code and isn't an unethical pack of narcissists who will say anything for the purpose of Keeping Scientology Working (The Way to Happiness Foundation).
ABLE is run entirely by Sea Org lifers who wouldn't tie their shoes unless David Miscavige told them to. But the front groups try to pretend that they have only a tenuous tie to the Church of Scientology itself.
