Scientology loses its best fundraiser at perhaps the worst possible time - 2016-12-27
(Davie Lurie and his sister Charmaine Roger)
Word has gradually made its way out of Scientology's Florida headquarters — the Flag Land Base, in Clearwater — that a key figure there has died. One of the things "Flag" is known for is that it brings in more money than all the rest of Scientology's worldwide facilities combined. Flag is where wealthy Scientologists from around the planet come to spend huge amounts on high-level courses they can only get in Clearwater. And it's a special kind of Scientology Sea Org officer — the "registrars," called "regges" for short — who bring in that money by the millions, week after week.
And none of the regges was more well known, or more recognized for bringing in the really big money from Scientology's biggest "whales" than Charmaine Roger.
