Sharron Angle leads while hiding Scientology connections; Su

http://community.livejournal.com/ontd_political/6359901.html

Surging Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle has had to defend her support of a prison program that her opponents linked to Scientology. Trying to head off that theme, Angle has eliminated from her campaign website mention of prominent members of the church, whom she worked with on other legislative efforts.

Angle has removed the claim that she, along with actresses Kelly Preston and Jenna Elfman, approached Sen. John Ensign to sponsor legislation prohibiting school employees from requiring students to take psychotropic drugs, such as anti-depressants.

Preston and Elfman are high-profile members of the Church of Scientology, which does not believe in the use of psychiatric drugs.

Instead, Angle’s website, sharronangle.com, says only that Ensign sponsored a bill “at Angle’s request.”

More at the source in the headline.

So, week-old news is old, right? Not entirely. It turns out that Sharron Angle is now leading Sue Lowden.

Nevada GOP Senate Candidate Sharron Angle & Scientology

http://www.opposingviews.com/i/nevada-gop-senate-candidate-sharron-angle-scientology

Sharron Angle was the big winner Tuesday night of the Nevada GOP Senate primary. She's earned the right to oppose House Majority Leader Harry Reid in the fall. If taking on one of the most powerful Democrats in the country isn't hard enough, the former state legislator will have to do it while battling claims she has ties to Scientology.

During the GOP campaign, an opponent ran a television ad highlighting Angle's support for a massage program for Nevada prisoners -- a program that was designed by the Church of Scientology............

Angle’s Scientology Problem

http://www.frumforum.com/angles-scientology-problem

It’s early days yet, but it does seem we can acquit Sharron Angle herself of belonging to the Church of Scientology. But she did forcefully advocate introducing Scientology backed programs into Nevada prisons. Why?

A group of Scientology critics offer this explanation:

In the early years of [the 2000s], there were efforts in the Four Corners states to place Scientology front group programs into prisons at taxpayer’s expense. Sharron Angle, a Nevada legislator, worked very hard to convince her fellows on the legislature that a Scientology front group called Second Chance would be a good program for Nevada prisons. Second Chance is another Scientology entity which sells the dangerous Purification Rundown. After an email campaign to inform the legislators of the truth behind Second Chance, it was nearly unanimously decided that public money could be better spend [sic] elsewhere. Only Sharron Angle was still supporting it, expressing her bewielderment [sic] at the Legislature’s refusal to adopt it into their state prisons. Had Ms. Angle done any research outside of listening to Scientology representatives, her confusion would have been easily cleared up.

Interestingly enough, Ms. Angle is a member of the National Foundation of Women Legislators, an organization which has been around since the 1930s. However, the NFWL’s current treasurer is Bruce Wiseman, a Scientologist and president of the Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights, a Scientology front group aimed at discrediting and destroying psychiatry and mental health programs. Also on a NFWL board is Joy Westrum, Scientologist, and president of Second Chance.

It is no coincidence that Scientologists are on the board of the NFWL. It gives them an opportunity to connect with legislators from all over the country. The NFWL claims to have several thousand members nationwide, and some of them wind up supporting and endorsing Scientology’s fraudulent programs.

So the good news for Nevada Republicans is that Angle is not personally a member of the notorious Church.

The bad news: She seems to be a gullible person, easily deceived by persons with sinister agendas. Thanks, Tea Party!

Tea Party Candidate Supports Scientology

http://www.xenutv.com/blog/?p=4864

The GOP has themselves a Scientology problem on their hands. The Tea Party candidate for Nevada senator won the Republican nomination on Tuesday. One of the attacks thrown against her in the primary is gaining more attention now that Sharron Angle is facing off against Harry Reid in the Fall.

In this fun ad, she’s attacked for her support of Scientology’s Criminon program.

Okay, backrubs with scented candles is not exactly the major problem surrounding Scientology’s front group but it’s good to see that Scientology’s stank is stinking to Angle as she continues her campaign.
