That said, her husband’s shilling for Scientology was pretty shameless.

And the most important thing to consider, of course, is that nine months into his first administration, in October 1993, Bill Clinton signed off on the IRS granting Scientology tax exempt status. But that distinction comes with a huge caveat.


The story sounds apocryphal, but there’s no doubt that Clinton did go out of his way to help the Church of Scientology, particularly when, soon after the IRS decision, Scientology began having serious problems overseas with a German government crackdown.


Scientology struck back in 1996 and 1997, spending “almost $725,000” with Federal Legislative Associates and its managing partner, David H. Miller, to lobby Congress about Scientology and the rough treatment it was receiving in Germany.


With the lobbying of Congress producing little and the open letter backfiring, Scientology had better luck turning for help to Bill Clinton, this time with the aid of actor John Travolta.


“The next day, I met with Clinton. He told me, ‘Your program sounds great’,” Travolta later said in an interview. “More than that [the president said] I’d really love to help you with your issue over in Germany with Scientology.”
