More Scientology orgs and missions got Covid bailouts than we knew: The detailed breakdown - 2020-12-03
This summer when the Trump Administration first released limited information about which businesses had received Covid bailout loans, we reported that among them were three Scientology churches — the New York and DC 'Ideal Orgs,' and the Belleair, Florida mission — as well as two Narconon drug rehab entities and Scientology's nuttiest front group, Citizens Commission on Human Rights. We also pointed out that four Scientology-affiliated schools received PPP loans, including Scientology's "Hogwarts," its premier boarding school in Oregon.
Now, the administration has released more detailed information about the exact dollar amounts of the PPP loans, and it turns out that several more Scientology entities are on the list. We have the full breakdown for you, which includes not only dollar amounts but also the identity of the lenders involved.
"It's insane," Leah Remini told the Daily Beast when she was asked about Scientology getting Covid bailouts of taxpayer money in July. "Mike [Rinder] and I have tried to meet many times with the IRS, and the IRS knows what they've done. They've known that they've cleared the way for Scientology to misappropriate their money. It's run like a business for profit. And this just says that!"
