Petition Closed

Recent revelations from a high-ranking Scientology executive provide another glimpse into the greedy and corrupt atmosphere that permeates the so-called Church of Scientology, an organization accused of human trafficking, hate crimes, and widespread violation of U.S. and International law. The U.S. government is subsidizing an organization that destroys lives, and should follow the example of countries around the world in revoking tax-exempt status for this criminal organization.

Revoke tax-exempt status for the Church of Scientology

Recent revelations from a high-ranking Scientology executive provide another glimpse into the greedy and corrupt atmosphere that permeates the so-called Church of Scientology, an organization accused of human trafficking, hate crimes, and widespread violation of U.S. and International law.

Since late 2008 a significant number of former Church of Scientology senior staff members and executives have provided information to the FBI as internal whistle blowers. There is good reason to believe that Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige has used well placed Washington lawyers to cause the Department of Justice to delay and disrupt the FBI’s investigation. In the past, Miscavige’s Washington lawyers have included Monique Yingling, Esq. and her husband Gerald Feffer, Esq. who recently retired but who was a senior partner at the leading Washington law firm of Williams & Connolly. Previously he was at the Department of Justice as an assistant deputy attorney general for tax matters.

The U.S. government is subsidizing an organization that destroys lives, and should follow the example of countries around the world in revoking tax-exempt status for this criminal organization.
