VIDEOTAPED April 16, 1983
Gabe Cazares was the Mayor of Clearwater, Florida when Scientology entered the town under the assumed name of United Churches. Gabe was outspoken in his desire to get to the bottom of what this group was doing in his city. Scientology launched a vicious series of covert operations against him to try to destroy his political career.
Also seen in this interview is Wayne Shelor who was working at the time for the Clearwater Sun newspaper. The Sun was bold and courageous in their efforts to uncover the truth of what Scientology was doing. The Sun also faced a relentless assault from Scientology and ultimately folded.
Wayne Shelor later worked as the PR spokeman for the Clearwater Police and had to temper his views from what he says in this video.http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5704547942523554352
