Devin Nunes' wineries received $1M to $2M loans, while three Church of Scientology locations got at least $150k each.

According to data released from the Small Business Administration, Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) wineries and the Church of Scientology were among the recipients of loans from the Paycheck Protection Program.

  • USA Today reported that Nunes “listed on his 2018 public financial disclosure forms roles as a limited partner with investments in Phase 2 Cellars in San Luis Obispo, California, and Alpha Omega Winery in Saint Helena, California.”
  • Data released from the SBA shows that those “wineries received loans of $1 million to $2 million.”
  • The Independent reported that “Church of Scientology locations in New York, Washington DC and Florida were also cleared to receive loans between $150,000 (£120,000) and $350,000 (£278,000) each.”
  • The Church of Scientology “is reported to be worth at least $1 billion,” the publication noted.

The SBA program was passed in March in an effort to help sustain America’s small business as the coronavirus pandemic began wrecking the economy.

This is TOTALLY UNEXCEPTABLE. Churches don't pay taxes so they definitely should not get anything and anyone who works for our government should be exempt from receiving it also. They should have to pay every penny of it back.
