It's primary day in Florida, and here's how Scientology will be voting - 2018-08-28
Today voters in Florida will be casting ballots in local elections and party primaries, and just in time we have your Scientology Voters Guide!
We've pointed out in the past that Scientologists tend to lean right, and there's simply no doubt that they receive instructions for how to vote in specific races. Proof of that was pretty dramatically demonstrated by the Los Angeles Times, which found that the only precinct in Los Angeles to go for Donald Trump was the one that includes Scientology's "Big Blue" headquarters.
We've also found examples where Scientologists were told how to vote in Clearwater, Florida — the other place, other than Los Angeles, where there are enough Scientologists to make an impact on local races.
This time, it was Pat Clouden who sent the word out on how to vote in today's elections. Clouden's name often pops up in Scientology fliers and initiatives cited here and at Mike Rinder's website. He's been involved in Scientology since 1975, and he's a big donor after striking it rich in Florida's energy deregulation, like other wealthy church members.
