    Christopher Brightmore JP - Magistrate and Town Clerk- Louth, Lincolnshire UK
    Town Clerk

    He is ex-Commissioner of Citizens Commission on Human Rights.
    He stood down as commissioner of CCHR on 1st Jan 2001.

    University Lecturer , Leicester University (not sure if he still has this post)

    Christopher Brightmore was a lay person on the UK's General Medical Council fitness to practice panel. He was sacked for not declaring his involvement with CCHR as a conflict of interest since his role included assessing/passing judgement on psychiatrists' fitness to practice. (This is a landmark case in the UK in regard to scientology/ Conflict of Interest).
    Brightmore was on the GMC panel from 21/9/2001 - 21/6/2004

    Previously he was Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Brightmore of the City of London Police (see also Kevin Hurley and Chief Superintendent Ken Stewart, Special Branch).

    Lord and Lady McNair - UK.

    McNair was a scientologist - so the cult encouraged him to take up his hereditary peerage. Not sure if he's still a lord. (Rumoured links to Liberal Democrat Party - dox anyone?)

    Lady Mc Nair is a scientologist and is the Executive Director of CCHR UK. She's involved with parliamentary groups.

    For anyone googling themselves and finding themselves on this list:

    Scientology is an extremist group that is committed to gaining power through non-democratic tactics. Befriending and influencing people in public office is one of these specific tactics.

    Do some research before you are cynically used to promote scientology via their various front groups that claim to help people.

    Should we also add sheriffs and others in law enforcement, firemen, ect... like Lee Baca of CA?
    Also, how about people like Jeff Stone, who sided with them, but not really "promoted" the COS?
  10. Anonymous Member

    Anyone who is paid out of public money was the idea of this thread - so yes.
    Scientology involvement or affiliation of any kind should have to be declared as a conflict of interest by anyone in any publicly funded job..

    No - because some are knowingly shilling for the cult, others have just been flattered and simply haven't done their research (The reasons for various officials being involved with scientology are fully discussed in other threads). All are being used. The idea is that any/all for whatever reason just need to be listed here with relevant links for the public record.

    Can we try to keep this thread as a list with links - change the title if you like, not too bothered - the list is what is important.

    Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard:
    Church of Scientology of Pasadena on Sunday, July 18, 2010: “With this beautifully restored structure in Old Pasadena, the Church represents not only a growing religion, but an important factor in the future of this city. So, it is a pleasure for me to extend a cordial welcome to you and this extraordinary Church of Scientology of Pasadena with its long history of service to the community.”

    Paul Littile Pasadena Chamber of Commerce President and CEO
    Paul Little addressed Scientologists and guests at opening ceremonies of the new Church of Scientology of Pasadena on July 18, 2010: “You are always there. Your devotion to the people of this city, your ability to enhance the quality of our life wherever you work—that's what I've come to know as the hallmark of the Church of Scientology. You have made a profound and lasting statement of your dedication to Pasadena and to the great society we know we can be.”

    Old but relevant: Chief Superintendents Kevin Hurley and Ken Stuart of City of London Police, spoke at the opening of Scientology building in London 2006

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2008/may/20/1

    The City of London police came under fire two years ago when it emerged that more than 20 officers, ranging from constable to chief superintendent, had accepted gifts worth thousands of pounds from the Church of Scientology.

    The City of London Chief Superintendent, Kevin Hurley, praised Scientology for "raising the spiritual wealth of society" during the opening
    of its headquarters in 2006.

    Last year a video praising Scientology emerged featuring Ken Stewart, another of the City of London's chief superintendents, although he is not a member of the group.

    Not government officials, but doctors receiving public money working for the NHS:
    In the UK there is the Critical Psychiatry Network. "The 'Bradford Group' of psychiatrists first met in Bradford in January 1999. The group provides a network to develop a critique of the contemporary psychiatric system".


    Joanna Moncrieff is a chairperson of this group. She is quoted by CCHR and has never publicly stated she disagrees with them using her status to validate them.


    Here's a list of members of CPN from their website:

    Phil Thomas
    Rhodri Huws
    Duncan Double
    Chandrashekar Gangaraju
    Nazlim Hagmann
    William Hopkins
    Begum Maitra
    Sami Tamimi
    Charles Whitfield

    BBC Open University Documentary 2009:
    Joanna Moncrieff consultant psychiatrist appeared in a biassed and emotive BBC Open University Documentary called 'Mental: A History of The Madhouse'. She is critical of use of drugs and questions the evidence that psychiatric illnesses have any physical origins.

    In the documentary CCHR logo was in the back of an interview with an abused ex psychiatric patient Maggie Chapman, there's shots of her holding up an award from CCHR - the commentary states "Maggie is now a successful campaigner for local community causes" -no reference is made to CCHR or scientology- The commentary should state "Maggie Chapman is being used by scientology front group CCHR".

    here is a shit load
    I would imagine a lot of these people are no longer holding these positions.
    This was copy pasta'ed from Tilman's page
    http://home.snafu.de/tilman/politics.html

    In 1993, the Baden-Württemberg state government refused to invite OT8 Chick Corea at a state-sponsored concert (contract negotiations were stopped). After that, Scientology made a lobbying effort, and several US politicians stood up and called the refusal to invite Corea a violation of the freedom of expression and the artistic expression. Chick Corea lost his lawsuit against the state of Baden-Württemberg twice (read the court decision in german).

    In 1997, 6 members of congress proposed H. CON. RES. 22, which failed miserably in a vote. In 1998, 53 members of congress proposed H.CON.RES.325, which died with the end of the legislative session.

    In 1999, 56 members of congress proposed H.RES 388IH and 3 members of congress proposed SRES 230 IS; in 2000, 3 members of congress proposed H.RES 588 IH. All three resolutions died with the end of the legislative session.

    In 2001, Rep. Gilman introduced H.R.3151 and Rep. Ros-Lehtinen introduced H.R.3145. Both resolutions died with the end of the legislative session.

    In 2003, Rep. Max Burns introduced H.R.1170("To protect children and their parents from being coerced into administering a controlled substance in order to attend school, and for other purposes"). The resolution died with the end of the legislative session.

    In 2005, Rep. Ron Paul introduced H.R.181("To prohibit the use of Federal funds for any universal or mandatory mental health screening program"). The resolution died with the end of the legislative session.

    In May 2009, 6 members of congress, led by Trent Franks (R-AZ), wrote a letter of protestto the Ambassador of France because they didn't like the MIVILUDES report that had been published one day before.

    • Bill Clinton, president of the United States. Travolta met him in 1997, and was delighted: "he said he wanted to help me with the Scientology situation in Germany." (Source: TIME 22.9.1997) Official reason: years ago, Clinton had a roommate who was a Scientologist and had really liked him. Actual reason: he wanted a positive portrayal of the president in the movie Primary Colors. Clinton assigned national security adviser (!) Sandy Berger to the Scientology problem. In New Year 2000, he sent a greetings message to Scientologists, thanking them for all your efforts to promote [religious freedom] and to build communities united in understanding, compassion and mutual respect."

      He also wrote an article for Freedom Magazine, Scientology's infamous propaganda magazine.
    • Hillary Clinton, at the time she was first Lady, greeted the members of the Scientology front group Hands of Hope, and received a quilt with a quote of L. Ron Hubbard. (The event was later appropriately named Clearwatergate).
    • Rep Howard Coble (R-NC): complained to the swedish parliament about publicly available NOTS packs. When asked about his letter later, he could not remember. Why kind of moron is this???
    • Rep John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI): Chick Corea incident, complained to the german ambassador and to the head of the CSCE delegation, and supports H.RES 388 IH.
    • Florida state representative Larry Crow introduced the CCHR sponsored H 0357: While its title Parental Consent/Medical Treatment seems harmless, the text shows that it would prevent schools to give children something as simple as an aspirin without prior parental permission; would forbid schools to provide health services if protested by the parents; would limit transportation to a hospital without parental permission in non-emergency situations. The law was obviously designed for children of Scientologists and members of other anti-intellectual cults. The law never made it to a House vote and died with the end of the legislative session in May 2001.
    • Chicago Mayor Richard Daley accepted the Ron The Humanitarian award from Scientologist Mike Zarnek
    • Sen Alphonse D'Amato (R-NY): chairman of the CSCE, continued where DeConcini stopped. Mother Jones magazine names him arguably the most corrupt politician in America and a self-evident crook. In September 1997 he arranged a hearing Religious Intolerance in Europe Today in which three Scientology celebrities (Isaac Hayes, John Travolta and Chick Corea) read prepared scripts. Another Guest was the Islamophobe "Reverend" Terry Jones, see Mike Enzi
    • Sen Dennis DeConcini (D-AZ), chairman of the CSCE. Chick Corea incident, and also used his position to include it in the CSCE reports in which Germany was critized for it. He should know it better, considering this excerpt from the 1980 St. Petersburg Times Pulitzer award winning series on Scientology:
      DeConcini is no longer a Senator; he retired because of his role in the S & L scandal (he was one of the "Keating Five").
    • Sen Chris Dodd (D-CT): in August 1996 asked Secretary of State Warren Christopher to investigate "religious discrimination" of Scientologists.
    • Gov Jim Edgar (R-IL): Noting that Scientology's founder "has solved the aberrations of the human mind," he proclaimed March 13 "L. Ron Hubbard Day." in the year 1991. He rescinded the proclamation in late March, once he learned who Hubbard really was.
    • Sen Mike Enzi (R-WY): Joined a press release and made a statement in 1999 in which he complained that "European countries are following the German example" and introduced SRES 230 IS. Enzi also claimed persecution of "Reverend" Terry Jones and his "Christliche Gemeinde Köln" (see also the Congressional Record of November 9, 1999, page 29166). In 1999, the state department admitted that it had been fooled ("The fact that the Church apparently violated tax law, and the authorities' voluntary reduction of the Church's tax liability, raise questions about the merit of the CCK's allegations of harassment."). Jones was convicted of a 3000 Euro fine in 2002 for using a bogus "Doctor" title. In 2008, the german church community gave Jones the boot and have started to apologize to former members. Jones is back to the US, where he runs the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville. According to an article, he runs that "Church" like a family business. He received worldwide fame by planning a public Koran burning on September 11, 2010.
    • Florida State Sen Mike Fasano (R) visited a Scientology event on 19.7.2003 at the Fort Harrison Hotelto promote Scientology's bogus anti-drug and anti-crime programs.
    • Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA): Chick Corea incident, complained to the german ambassador (page one, page two).
    • Rep Trent Franks (R_FL): wrote a letter of protest in May 2009 to the Ambassador of France because he didn't like the MIVILUDES report that had been published one day before.

    • Florida State Sen Dennis L. Jones (R) visited a Scientology event on 19.7.2003 at the Fort Harrison Hotel to promote Scientology's bogus anti-drug and anti-crime programs.
    • Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating congratulated Narconon Chilocco, Scientology's drug rehabilitation scam
    • Oklahoma State Sen Richard Lerblance spoke at a Narconon Arrowhead celebration on Sept 19, 2003
    • California Attorney General Bill Lockyer appears on a photograph (see bottom of the page) with Scientology cultists Bob Graves, Dennis McKenna and Don Pearson. McKenna is a former staff member of Scientology's Guardian Office. The caption (which did originally come from the Citizenship & Law-Related Education Center) makes it appear that they come from different companies; the truth is that they all work for the same company, which publishes Government Technology Magazine, which tries to promote Scientology "technology" to government entities. (More details on the company page)
    • Sen Richard Lugar (R-IN): praised the Scientology front group Concerned Businessmen's Association of America
    • Sen Connie Mack (R-FL), sent a letter to the White House, urging the first family to meet with the the Scientology front group Hands of Hope. (By the way, "Connie" is male). He lost his seat in the 2000 election.
    • Rep Cynthia A. McKinney (D-GA): joined H. CON. RES. 22 (see Donald Payne)
    • Rep Tom Lantos (D-CA), Chick Corea incident: he wrote to the head of the CSCEto complain. In 1988 Lantos had co-sponsored a "cult awareness week". Why the flip-flop? Maybe because his "Congressional Human Rights Foundation" (a private non-profit group) had a close relationship with Hill & Knowlton (they donated office space and handled phone calls), which had the worst human rights abusers, including Scientology, as clients.

      Lantos was involved in another propaganda activity. In 1991, before the first Gulf war, he claimed that the identity of "Nayirah" (the girl who claimed that Iraqi soldiers had taken babies from their incubators) would be kept secret "to protect her family from reprisals in occupied Kuwait". The truth came out after the war - Nayirah was the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the U.S., and Hill & Knowlton orchestrated her tour.
      In 1999 he co-wrote a letter to the European Council in an unsuccessful effort to prevent them from publishing a report critical on cults.
    • Rep Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) supported H.CON.RES.325 and H.RES 388 IH, and introduced H.R.3145. Here is an analysis of the Scientologist money flows (also here) to her. In August 7, 2004, she presented a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol in recognition of the Scientology Celebrity Centre’s 35th anniversary of "humanitarian and voluntary contributions", together with Rep. Brad Sherman.
    • Rep Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) wrote a letter of support to the New York Workers Detoxification Project, a Scientology front to advertise the unscientific "purification rundown".
    • Thomas Menino, Mayor of Boston, proclaimed April 22 to be World Literacy Crusade day. He explicitly commended volunteers using study methodology based on the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard to help improve reading and writing skills among inner-city youth. His spokesperson later claimed not to have known what was behind it. In 2001, he supported again Scientology's literacy scam and handed them money through the Safe Neighborhoods Youth Fund. His spokesperson later claimed not to have known of the Scientology connection.
    • Rep Carlos J. Moorhead (R-CA, Glendale district !): submitted a support-letter to the Drug-Free-Marshalls and complained to the swedish parliament about publicly available NOTS packs, and got an answer telling him – in very diplomatic form – where to stick it. Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Courts and Intellectual Property. Here's his profile. Luckily his term expired in January 1997. Who pays him? Scientologist Craig Jensen and his wife Sally Jensen.

    • Sen Carol Moseley-Braun (D-IL): in August 1996 asked Secretary of State Warren Christopher to investigate "religious discrimination" of Scientologists, and confirmed this in a letter to a netizen. Scientology is not the only cult she supports: she also signed an open letter asking for Lyndon H. LaRouche's Exoneration. Who pays her? Tom Cruise!

    Who pays him? Scientologists Craig Jensen, his wife Sally Jensen, Joseph Feshbach and Nancy Cartwright. It didn't help him - he lost his seat in the 2000 election. His Chief of Staff was Scientologist Greg Mitchell (more details here and here). Greg is now vice-president of Keelen Communications and also involved with the Scientologist group Citizens for Social Reform.

    • Rep Matt Salmon (R-AZ, LDS member): Introduced H.CON.RES.325 in 1998 condemning Germany for its activities against Scientology, and H.RES 388 IH in 1999, and H.RES 588 IH in 2000 (which condemns about every country in Western Europe for discriminating almost everyone). Joined a press release in 1999 which complained that "European countries are following the German example". Claimed to a journalist that Chick Corea couldn't get a permission to make concerts in Germany. When asked what kind of "permission" is needed, he answered: "That's what Chick Corea tells us". (Read the article online). Scientology likes him so much that they praised him in their propaganda organ. He lost his seat at the 2000 election.
    • Rep Jose Serrano (D-NY): Chick Corea incident, complained to the german ambassador and to the head of the CSCE delegation.
    • Sen Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) wrote a letter of support to the New York Workers Detoxification Project, a Scientology front to advertise the unscientific "purification rundown".
    • Rep Louise M. Slaughter (D-NY): Chick Corea incident, complained to the german ambassador and to the head of the CSCE delegation, also joined H. CON. RES. 22 (see Donald Payne).
    • Rep Christopher H. Smith (R-NJ), chairman of the CSCE: in 1999, he co-wrote a letter to the European Council in an unsuccessful effort to prevent them from publishing a report critical on cults.
    • Sen Gordon Smith (R-OR): As the chairman of the foreign relations committee's European affairs subcommittee he suggested at a hearing (around May 1st, 2001) to impose retaliatory sanctions against France, Belgium, Germany and Austria for "increased hostility toward smaller and newer religions", saying the US could choose to decline visas to European church groups and journalists.
    • Sen Olympia Snowe (R-MN): in August 1996 asked Secretary of State Warren Christopher to investigate "religious discrimination" of Scientologists.
    • Rep Brad Sherman (D-CA): On August 7, 2004, he presented a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol in recognition of the Scientology Celebrity Centre’s 35th anniversary of "humanitarian and voluntary contributions", together with Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. On 30.10.2009, he did this again for the "Founding Church of Scientology" in Washington DC.
    • Rep Dianne Watson (D-CA) (R_FL): co-signed a letter of protest in May 2009 to the Ambassador of France because he didn't like the MIVILUDES report that had been published one day before. As a California State Senator, Watson also supported Scientology in a 1996 "human rights" event (honoring Scientologist Isaac Hayes) at the Celebrity Centre.

    • Former CA Governor Pete Wilson (R-CA): submitted a congratulation to NARCONON and a proclamation to the Celebrity Centre
    • Rep Frank Wolf (R-VA) (R_FL): co-signed a letter of protest in May 2009 to the Ambassador of France because he didn't like the MIVILUDES report that had been published one day before. In 1998, Frank Wolf authored legislation (H.R.3151) to establish the "International Religious Freedom Office" at the State Department.

    • James Ridge, press chief of the CSCE about the report: "we stand by what is written"
    • Sen James Talent (R-MI): sent a letter of congratulation to the Church of Scientology of Missouri in December 2004

    We had a decent anon-wiki. but it went belly-up, and haven't been functional since. Unfortunately, I'm no techie, otherwise I'd help resurrect it myself.

    What's the Wiki in the title bar? It's already got the Big List, why can't it hold this one, too?
    I don't know from Wiki, but I'm willing to learn.

    No idea about wiki but a more searchable/ordered list somewhere would be good.

    A list of people in any country who are paid out of (or directly connected to) public money, who have been befriended by the cult and are
    -openly promoting scientology publicly or
    -pushing a specific agenda on behalf of scientology in their field of work.

    Scientology is an extremist group committed to gaining power through non democratic, clandestine means.
    Anyone in public office involved with scientology on any level should be obliged to declare their involvement as as a conflict of interests.

    Some relevant grandiose L Ron Hubbard Quotes:



    "You want to know what happens when you clear
    everybody in that neighbourhood, the only thing that
    [Scientology] center can become used for is a
    political center. Because by the time you've done all
    this, you are the government..."

    "Once the world is Clear - a nation, a state, a city
    or a village - the Scientology-organization in the
    area becomes its government! And once this has taken
    place the only policy accepted as valid is Scientology
    policy."

    from a lecture entitled "Future Org Trends" given
    January 9th 1962, L. Ron Hubbard said:


    "Somebody some day will say ‘this is illegal.’ By then be sure the orgs [Scientology organizations] say what is legal or not."
    - L. Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 4 January 1966, "LRH Relationship to Orgs"

    a nation or a state runs on the ability of its department
    heads, its governors, or any other leaders. It is easy to get posts in
    such areas unless one has delusions of grandeur or fear of it. Don't
    bother to get elected. Get a job on the secretarial staff or the
    bodyguard, use any talent one has to get a place close in, go to work
    on the environment and make it function better. Occasionally one might
    lose, but in the large majority, doing a good job and making the
    environment function will result in promotion, better contacts, a
    widening zone.

    The cue in all this is don't seek the co-operation of groups. Don't ask
    for permission. Just enter them and start functioning to make the group
    win through effectiveness and sanity.

    In the UK Scientology is not a recognised religion and has not been granted charitable status because it is deemed of 'no public benefit'. It adopted the title of 'church' purely to avoid immigration restrictions into the UK in the 1970's and for tax avoidance purposes.


    Scientology tries to influence and befriend councillors, police and government officials through bogus 'human rights' front groups and also via any 'interfaith groups' they can join or run:


    Scientology joining in with Westminster interfaith:

    http://www.westminsterinterfaith.org.uk/WIN/win62/62_11a_PilgrimageCL.htmlfrom



    Scientology Cult Member Tracy Coleman is head of PR for scientology in London, one of her jobs is to put forward an appearance of validity.
    She attends interfaith events in London and runs the cult's own 'community art projects' and 'inter-faith' events (including 'Peace Through the Arts') and a 'multi-faith' event on 'International Peace Day' on 21st September each year. Uninformed, well intentioned community rep.s from various London (real) faith groups are invited to the cult HQ on Queen Victoria Street in London.

    The cult consistently puts out press releases claiming success in human rights issues, volunteering, Scientology 'Say No To Drugs' youth football team in Camden with local police involvement etc.

    Note to self: Put foot in door, close door forcefully.

    Right, that wiki will do! The thing is we did actually have a fairly good wiki page on this stuff, see https://whyweprotest.net/community/threads/project-list-of-scientology-affiliated-policitians.58150/

    If I can only find a copy of the old page, I can put it in the new wiki.

    Edit: Found it! If anyone wants to contribute, here it is:

    Job Connections www.jobconnections.co.uk is a scientology run business that recruits nurses from overseas and places them in jobs in the UK - presumably as a nursing agency it supplies the NHS. The Way To Happiness scientology recruitment leaflet and links features on their website.

    Now
    Make sure you add to the wiki linked to in the top bar here.

    It's fairly easy to add stuff. I think you need to log inn, make a new account if you don't want your edits associated with your current user name. On any page, you will find a button named "Edit". Hitting it will open a editing window, where you can add stuff to your hearts content. It has a primitive but adequate WYSIWYG function, so it isn't really hard to get starting.

    If you want to experiment, you can start messing around with this page:
