This is an excerpt from a post from Chuck Beatty on ARS:
I heard from several people, people I trust, who stated they called
Bitty, and asked Bitty point blank about Rinder "being with Ronnie and
Bitty" and these two persons stated their impression was that Rinder
had either visited or stayed with Ronnie and Bitty at some point.
What I meant to convey in my recent post was that AFTER Mike was out,
that at some point he visited or stayed with Ronnie and Bitty.
I have heard subsequently that Mike's first contact once he
"blew" (escaped unauthorized) was to call his old friend/colleauge in
Florida, Tom DeVocht. Tom was working as car salesman, and I've heard
that Mike is doing the same.
Little Bear Victor, please go through his posts, he and blownforgood
have talked on the Mike Rinder and Tom DeVocht friendship
Little Bear Vicotr's posts on Clambake
blownforgood's posts on Clambake
BTstoFree's posts on Clambake.
There is excellent unprecedented historical material within these 3
men's above posts on Clambake!
I recommend people periodically read these three men's Clambake and
ESMB posts of these people!
Also, ex Sea Org members can go onto XSO chat site and ask questions
of the former Dir of Inspections and Reports of CMO Int!
Things are OPENING UP. Jenna wishing her letter to get picked up and
publicized is REAL.
The latest on Mike is he's working car sales with his former friend/
colleague Tom DeVocht.
I hope Mike finds his feet as a normal citizen again. It takes time
to unwind from Scientology, especially the top ranks administrators
who are entrusted with executing the FULL lineup of Hubbard's ideas/
I personally hope the younger generation like Jenna, also inspire
their parents, like Mike's generation, to over time speak up on the
record. (Realize Mike is a second generation Scientologist himself,
so Jenna is 3rd generation "Sea Org" offspring essentially!)
Tom DeVocht is a well liked good friend and long term colleague of
MOST of the ex top Scientology leaders. I don't know a single person
who has anything bad to say about Tom, he's a good guy.
There are some truly good nice people who suffered through a LOT of
bullshit in their decades of duty in the Sea Org.
That Mike chose Tom DeVocht as the first person to contact, upon
leaving, is important.
