Scientologist pair running for office double down on their denials about church involvement - 2018-04-24
We have a little follow up for you in regards to a story we did last week. Our veteran readers know that for several years we've kept an eye on Nevada politician and Scientologist Brent Jones, who served a single term as a state assemblyman, and is now running for lieutenant governor, with a Republican primary scheduled for June 12.
A reader alerted us that Brent's wife, Aimee Jones, is also running for office, hoping to win the Assembly seat that her husband held until he was defeated in the 2016 election. Curious about her involvement in Scientology, we found a church publication which listed that she had completed the "L11 New Life Rundown" — a very expensive auditing level only performed at the Flag Land Base in Clearwater, Florida, which would have run Aimee about $24,000. Brent also has the L11 experience under his belt, according to Scientology's own publications. Only very involved Scientologists have the chance to experience something like the L11 rundown, our experts told us.
But Aimee's campaign manager, Laurel Fee, denied that Brent or Aimee were Scientologists, telling us that the two of them had only taken some courses because they use L. Ron Hubbard's "admin technology" in their business, Affinity Lifestyles, which sells "Real Water," alkalized drinking water with added electrons.
