Lee Baca shilling for Scientology at an event in November On Tuesday, Scientology's Director of Public Relations for its Las Vegas "Celebrity Center," Devon Newman, was arrested for her part in a bizarre plot to kidnap, try, and execute a local police officer to make a political point for the "sovereign citizens" movement.
Tonight, Scientology's Celebrity Center in Hollywood holds its 44th annual gala, and besides the usual church celebrities who are expected to show, we've been told that Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca plans to make an appearance early in the evening.
For years, Baca has been an enthusiastic supporter of Scientology, showing up at many church events. But this time, we're wondering if any press covering the event will dare to ask him about the Celebrity Center employee who was planning to kill a cop, or about Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavge, who hasn't been seen in public in six years.
