Denver's police honcho, Robert White We recently brought you footage of Sacramento's mayor, former NBA player Kevin Johnson, gushing about Scientology at the opening of an "Ideal Org" in that city.

Since that fancy new building opened in California's capital, additional celebrations have occurred in places like Orange County and Denver, Colorado.

We've written extensively about the Ideal Org program, which is Scientology's cynical way of trying to convince the public that it's thriving and expanding -- by opening unneeded large facilities when it's actually been losing membership for years. A key component of this scheme is roping in local politicians for the grand opening events to help contribute to the illusion that the church is actually a benefit to the local community.
