Marty Rathbun, the former high-ranking Scientology official who last brought us news that a Vanity Fair writer spent 20 years as a secret Scientology spy, has dug into his archives again to find a memo offering a rare glimpse into the cult's campaign against Leiby, whom it regarded as an enemy and "suppressive person" for his reporting. The 2006 memo, printed in full below, details the cult's efforts to gather information on Leiby's separation from his wife, including searching her garbage for "any specific data as to why she kicked him out, what he is planning on doing, etc." The spying campaign was apparently sparked by a reporting call Leiby put in to the church.
