Loretta Sanchez Gave Certificate of Congressional Recognition to Orange County Church of Scientology in August
But for being just plain pendeja, I don't think anything can top what she did in August: not only visit the Orange County Church of Scientology Ideal Org (the mothership, for us non-Xenuans), but reward the place with a certificate of congressional recognition.
Does Loretta even know about the horrors of Scientology? What's next--giving Barbara Coe a lifetime achievement award for her work in diversity?

The snafu happened last August, while Loretta was taking a tour of businesses in downtown SanTana at the invite of Downtown Inc., the controversial group whom some say is leading the "renaissance" of the area while others blame for gentrification. While Loretta visited other businesses that day, her detour to the Ideal Org is simply bizarre. Who's the pendejo aide who told her this would be a good idea?
