Columnist, TV veteran, and self-described rabble rouser Meghan McCain has found some highly explosive rabble to rouse. McCain has amplified, without adding any of her own commentary, materials revealed by actress Leah Remini, a former Scientologist who has been highly critical of the organization, pertaining to the bombshell allegation against former TV star Danny Masterson.
Remini’s bombshell post features what she says is a never publicly revealed portion of a 2004 letter addressed to Scientology head David Miscavige. (There is no evidence that it was sent.)
The actress claims that she is breaking new ground by publishing the letter’s content, allegedly written by the mother of the person identified as Jane Doe #1 in Masterson’s trial. Remini writes: “For the first time, I am publishing an internal Scientology communication that Jane Doe #1’s mom sent to David Miscavige seeking justice for her daughter…”

The poorly written letter includes redactions and is otherwise steeped in Scientology lingo, but Remini’s characterization of the situation is not ambiguous. She writes of the letter’s result and the victim’s plight: “Instead of protecting her, Miscavige tried to destroy her.”
Remini has nearly 900K followers on Twitter, and McCain’s share catapults her message out to an additional 800K. Remini, the author of Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, is writing more about the ongoing trial of the accused celebrity Scientologist here.
