Supervisor’s close ties to Scientology lawyer

Its turns out that Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone who is pushing a restrictive ordinance favoring the Church of Scientology, has a long history with the church’s lawyer, Samuel Alhadeff.   Mr. Alhadeff’s law firm has represented Mr. Stone is several matters and has also donated money to his campaign.  When questioned about this, Mr. Stone said,

“I have paid Mr. Alhadeff’s firm tens of thousands of dollars on many different issues that I have been involved in long before I was on the board of supervisors. He happens to be a very prominent attorney in southwest Riverside County.”

Supervisor Stone could easily eliminate any question of impropriety by recusing himself from voting on matters related to the Church of Scientology.   So far, he hasn’t done that.
