Mayors in Dallas, San Francisco, and Winnipeg also were not amused to see their photographs, cities' seals, even campaign slogans on the covers, according to news articles. But when a Scientology center opened in Buffalo in 2003, Mayor Anthony Masiello approved distribution of the booklet with a picture of city hall and the city seal.

"Scientology is an abusive cult group, and any elected official who knowingly allows his office to be connected with the distribution of Scientology literature has betrayed the trust placed in him by the electorate," wrote David S. Touretzky, a Carnegie Mellon University professor and Scientology critic.
