Nevada GOP Senate Primary Plays the Scientology Card

Candidate and former Nevada Assemblywoman Sharron Angle is taken to task by her opponent Sue Lowden (AKA The Chicken Lady) for a proposal to have a Scientology-inspired spas for prisoners.

Factcheck.org says it’s true:

Here are the facts: According to Nevada legislative records, Angle, a Nevada assemblywoman from 1998 to 2006, signaled her intent in late 2002 to draft legislation that would have created a demonstration drug rehabilitation program, the Second Chance Program, for state prisoners. The program, based on a similar program in Mexico, was developed by Criminon International, a California-based nonprofit affiliated with the Church of Scientology and its founder, L. Ron Hubbard. Criminon says on its website that it “utilizes the highly effective secular works of author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard to help inmates gain a new level of ability to study, to comprehend and to restore their integrity and pride.” The Associated Press described the program in a story about a March 1, 2003 trip to Ensenada State Prison in Mexico that Angle was arranging for her legislative colleagues and Nevada Department of Corrections Director Jackie Crawford.
