Mary Bono Mack was critical of CoS's pressure on her deceased husband Sonny Bono, and I haven't heard her support any Scientology lately.
Mary was never that supportive of the cult. She was the supportive wife of Sonny Bono, the clueless Scilon. When he died, she filed a complaint with the FBI of harassment by Mike Rinder and the cult, which ended the cult's relationship with everything Bono.
Mary is a Republican that has often broken rank & voted for gay rights causes & has been very supportive of the HIV community. She maintains a home in Palm Springs, which allows her to run for office in that district, but she lives fulltime in Florida with her 3rd husband, Congressman Connie Mack.
On Monday night, I attended a reception honoring Chaz Bono, who is one of the Grand Marshals for this year's LA Gay Pride Week parade (this Sunday). Mary & her husband were there, as was Cher and her son (Chaz' brother), Elijah Blue Allman.
