The Top 25 People Enabling Scientology, No. 10: Political shills - 2020-10-31
No US politician has ever paid a price for speaking at a Scientology event like Karen Bass did this summer.
You know the story. Joe Biden was supposedly serious about Los Angeles US Representative Karen Bass as a possible VP candidate when Breitbart pointed out that she had shilled for David Miscavige at a 2010 "Ideal Org" grand opening.
When asked about it, Bass, who was a state senator in 2010, said she spoke at the event for the simple reason that it took place in her district. But we then looked up the old district maps and pointed out that this wasn't true. She'd crossed over a couple of district boundaries to give her speech extolling L. Ron Hubbard at the LA Ideal Org grand opening. Bass had to correct her statement, and it turned out she hadn't even written the first one. It was a series of stumbles at exactly the wrong time for her.
