Letter from Scientologist to Senator Lawton Chiles (May 10, 1985)

FBI File No.: 62-116151-71
Lawton Chiles
U.S. Senate, Washington, D.C.
10 May 1985
Dear Sir:
I am writing to you as I find the recent data come to light in the video tape by the Church of Scientology regarding the FBI and IRS etc getting together and plotting to DISRUPT it from within to be totally and absolutely against the very foundation and principles and Constitution of this country. It is shocking that U.S. Government agencies could still be doing such in such a wide, multiple agency enterprise. I feel you must look into this yourself and then demand that a full scale investigation be done. Where there are indications like this actual criminality regarding constitutional rights of ours there must be more as well and I think a full investigation would find evidence of much more long term dishonesty than this It is VITAL for this to be done.
I remember some time in the early 70’s the FBI got its hands slapped for Counter-Intelligence programs such as this more recent one on the Church of Scientology. They promised to be good boys. Obviously this was a total lie. They need to have these current dishonesties found out about and HANDLED now. If this is not done forget about justice from the FBI and IRS, forget about honesty. It’s up to us, the people. I’m counting on you Mr. Chiles to do your job. See that video on the Church of Scientology sting operation on these guys. This really shows it. Then decide for yourself.
Thank you,
[name redacted]
