You know what makes people feel good? Getting a certificate of achievement. You know what makes people feel better? When that certificate is signed by Handsome Mike Gatto. Don’t believe me? Then just ask this 4th grader at Ivanhoe Elementary School.
Well, Mike’s at it again. He’s signed a fresh batch of California Legislature Assembly Certificates of Recognition and sent them over to the Church of Scientology. But don’t worry — Mike hasn’t fallen victim to the dangerous and manipulative recruitment practices of the “Church” of Scientology. No, these certificates were sent to honor the winners of the L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers and Illustrators of the Future award. We all know Mike loves a good ‘writing piece.” Just ask this 4th Grader at Ivanhoe Elementary School.
Mike also sent this awkwardly written letter, which was read aloud at the cult’s annual awards show. “In recognition of the 29th Annual Writers and Illustrators of the Future, I congratulate L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers and Illustrators of the Future for its everlasting support to writers and illustrators. I commend the organization’s effort to keep L. Ron Hubbard’s dreams alive, to spark the imaginative within us all, and to provide new and budding writers and illustrators the opportunity to share their works with the 43rd district and beyond.”
