Rathbun: 'Scientology never endorsed anyone where there wasn't a clear self-interest' - 2014-07-01
One of our tipsters had forwarded to us a mailer that was not meant to be spread outside the church, showing that several high-level Scientologists were organizing the event at the luxury Clearwater condominium of wealthy church members Michael and Liz Baybak. The fundraiser is scheduled for tonight, and attendees are asked to donate at least $1,000 each to Bondi's campaign.
Bondi is a Republican and former prosecutor who was endorsed by Sarah Palin when she first ran for election and won in 2010. Most recently, she's been in the news for announcing that she would be vigorously defending Florida's ban on gay marriage in the state and federal courts.
