Riverside supervisor got Scientology contribution

March 14, 2009

Palm Springs television station KESQ ran a five-part investigation into Scientology.   Given the lack of media coverage of this notorious organization where allegations about many of its labor practices not to mention religious beliefs have been ignored, I commend this station for this work. 

They also unearthed new information about Riverside Supervisor Jeff Stone and a $600 contribution he received from Scientology public relations person, Catherin Fraser.  I knew he received $5,400 from Scientology’s lawyer Sam Alhadeff.  Supervisor Stone spearheaded the constitutionally dubious ordinance banning protesters from getting within fifty feet of the Scientology’s compound in Hemet.
