ref: http://www.thedailybeast.com/author/john-connolly/John Connolly is a former New York City detective turned journalist. He is a contributing editor for Vanity Fair magazine, and is currently finishing a book called The Sin Eater on disgraced and imprisoned Hollywood private investigator Anthony Pellicano.
From Marty Rathbun:
John Connolly has been a Church of Scientology Office of Special Affairs informant for nearly two decades. He has infiltrated several journalists doing stories on Scientology during that time, posing as a like-minded investigative journalist working on a Scientology story. Journalists have apparently either not compared notes, or simply not noticed that Connolly hasn’t delivered on a Scientology story in the twenty years he says he’s been working on one. Connolly was originally recruited by Eugene Martin Ingram.
Here is an excerpt from a document authored by then-DCO External OSA INT (currently CO OSA INT – and at all times since the early eighties to the present Intelligence Chief OSA Int effectively) Linda Hamel. The document is dated, coincidentally, 14 February 2006 – five years ago, today. It reports on Connolly’s spy work against the author of the unauthorized biography of Tom Cruise, UK journalist Andrew Morton.
Welcome to the sunlight John Connolly.
