Thanks to the last investigative reporter in New York, confirmation that the actions outlined in the OSA (Corporate Scientology’s terror and harassment arm the Office of Special Affairs) memoranda I published in the above referenced posts have been confirmed by an independent witness.
Tony “the last investigative reporter in NY” Ortega of the Village Voice followed up on this particular OSA memorandum posted here three days ago:
Re: South Park
Eric Sherman (then-corporate Scientologist writer), who is good friends with Lloyd Kaufman (independent film maker), contacted him about South Park. Kaufman knows Trey Parker and Matt Stone and has been friends with them for years.
Ortega reported today on his interview with Kaufman, Ortega interview Kaufman. Kaufman, clearly an unwitting target of OSA operative Eric Sherman’s advances, confirms that Sherman indeed pumped him for data on Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
Kaufman was also asked about this OSA report I posted two days ago:
OSA Invest DR 3 May 06
SOUTH PARK: A PI met with a young filmmaker who recently graduated college (who was a student of Eric Sherman). The filmmaker recently did an interview with Lloyd Kaufman, a friend of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. He has agreed to assist to establish some comm lines in the South Park Studios and to try and get intelligence on their plans with regard to Scientology. He is going to approach Kaufman to see if Kaufman can get him an introduction to Parker and Stone and either possibly get a job as an intern there or as a writer (he has seen every episode of South Park).
Since Kaufman said he has been approached by so many film students so can’t recall whether anyone connected to Sherman followed up with him, the need for Eric Sherman to step forward increases. So far Sherman has remained true to my prediction in an earlier post, he’s gone AWOL.
