Tom Cruise’s pimp is back at it in South Texas.
David Miscavige has been big pimping in the Lone Star State.
Miscavige has hired the most expensive legal mercenaries in this region in an attempt to handle what he directed his spokesperson to tell the Tampa Times were malicious fabrications and complete balderdash. That was corporate Scientology’s official, initial response to the lawsuit brought against Miscavige, RTC, and CSI in the San Patricio County District courthouse by former cult PI’s Greg Arnold and Paul Marrick.
It does not take Lamont Jefferson, Esq. out of San Antonio to handle fabrications and balderdash. But, that is who was brought in to represent Miscavige personally. Jefferson is often hired by the wealthy and plenty guilty because his brother is the Supreme Court of Texas’ Chief Justice. Rich, guilty people reckon that gives them a leg up in front of local judges. As you can see Jefferson has no problem making Miscavige out to be the victim (you read that right, victim) of big, bad, real attorney with a conscience Sugar Ray Jeffrey.
As to RTC, they have chosen Tony Canales of Corpus Christi to represent them. He is the local horse of choice by the drug dealers and con men of unlimited bread of the region. He has done more for the South Texas crime industry than perhaps any other man. He is arguing that RTC has never carried out ANY business in Texas. Prevarication has never been a problem in the past for Canales, and apparently still isn’t. A year ago, Canales himself was doing plenty of RTC/Miscavige business in San Pat County Texas by unethically lobbying the Sheriff and the office of the County Attorney to have me falsely arrested (a matter that exploded in Miscavige’s face when the false arrest was exposed by the Corpus Christi Caller Times).
What is worse are the sworn affidavits of Warren McShane in support of both motions (affidavits are attached to motions). As I have noted before, McShane has been retained as a Director of RTC by Miscavige for one reason and one reason alone, as per Miscavige’s own words: the only reason I keep Warren around is because he is such a good liar. In this case McShane is willingly and knowingly committing perjury by swearing RTC has had no NO contacts or operations in the State of Texas. As those who have followed this blog know, McShane, Miscavige, and RTC have been doing daily business in San Patricio County Texas every single day for four straight years.
To make matters worse, last week on this blog, I shared a glimpse of a wheelbarrow full of evidence I have demonstrating that those DAILY Texas contacts are of the most unconscionable sort.
Leave it to Miscavige to bring water pistols to put out a prairie fire. Leave it to Miscavige to pay $800/hour for the sleaziest con men money can buy to wield those pistols.
I hope he doesn’t, but my bet is that Miscavige pays off Marrick and Arnold before this ever gets to a hearing.
If he doesn’t, I’ll be right in the center of this storm.
Stay tuned to the weather channel.
