Church infiltrated the Clearwater Sun - 1980-01-09
When the Church of Scientology came silently and secretly into Clearwater near the end of 1975, June came with it.
She took a job at the Clearwater Sun and when, on Jan. 28,1976 a Scientology spokesman announced that the church was the new owner of the Fort Harrison Hotel, she was already bustin" out all over.
But a church document -- one of several recently released by a federal court in Washington that detail her activities -- show that the Guardians were worried about her future.
Jimmy Mulligan, the commodore staff guardian assistant for information, wrote Dick Weigand, deputy guardian for information U.S., that a private investigator "gave info to the DEA last November implicating June Byrne (one of our AMA plants) in drug dealing; and causing her to be wanted for questioning by the DEA."
