In an arrest that surprised nobody, former Smallville actress turned sex cult lieutenant, Allison Mack, was arrested for trafficking women for sex and cheap labor to her cult guru, Keith Raniere. Raniere was arrested several weeks ago in Mexico for luring young actress wannabes into his meditation classes slash exploitation of naive women centers in various remote places across the North American continent. At the time of his arrest, Mack and other senior lady leaders of the NXIVM cult chased after the police car taking their dubious leader away. Quite a sight.
Every evil cult leading male needs a friendly female face to bring in the ladies and Mack was that woman for Raniere. According to arrest indictment for Mack:
Allison Mack recruited women to join what was purported to be a female mentorship group that was, in fact, created and led by Keith Raniere. The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants’ benefit.
Well, that’s not good. Mack was clearly under the spell of Raniere, for whatever defense merit that will be worth when used in court to try and keep Mack from doing really hard time. She and Raniere apparently had matching tattoos signifying their Six Sigma executive dedication to this raping of young women cult. The women themselves in the cult were also summarily branded about the pubic area. Imagine that isn’t a pleasant feeling, but a solid reminder of the very stupid thing you did when young and not so smart.
Mack isn’t the first Hollywood ingenue to become a chief proselytizer of some cunning mad man’s cult. Fortunately, people weren’t slaughtered in this one, though the damage was still extensive. Do not wait around for Mack to be part of the Smallville reunion show.
