This is Ed Buck. He is a liberal democrat mega-donor and he has a problem.
Black men keep dying in his home. In August of 2017, Gemmel Moore was found dead in the Buck home:
A 26-year-old man was found dead at the home of a well-known Democratic party donor late last month of a drug overdose.
The incident occurred on July 27 around 7.22pm at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a high-profile political activist and wealthy contributor to the California and Los Angeles County Democratic Party.
The Los Angeles County Coroner declared Gemmel Moore’s death an ‘accident,’ due to a ‘methamphetamine’ overdose, the WeHo Times publication reported. But Moore’s family believes that foul play was involved in the hours between Gemmel’s arrival at Buck’s home and his fatal overdose.
During a phone interview with the WeHo Times last week, Gemmel Moore’s mother, LaTisha Nixon, said that her son had been involved with sex-work for the past few years.
Buck has quite a high profile among democrats- white democrats:
Buck has given hundreds of thousands of dollars of Democratic causes and candidates over the years. His Facebook page boasts dozens photos of him with everyone from presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to Governor Jerry Brown and even Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. One look at the list of political contributions from Buck to Democrats and it’s easy to see that while he may have a penchant for young Black men–that liking doesn’t extend to Black politicians of whom only one handful have received donations.
And they happily take his money. Here’s Hillary with Buck
And of course, Adam Schiff:
And even Governor Moonbeam himself
I’m not claiming a thing here, but this is allegedly from Buck’s Facebook page
From Red State:
Despite his entrenchment with gay activist communities it seems he has soured those relationships. The Advocate boldly declared that Buck is “a prominent Democratic donor who allegedly has a fetish for drugging sex workers.” The Los Angeles LGBT Center issued a statement requesting the Sheriff’s Department “fully investigate this tragedy and aggressively seek justice wherever the investigation might lead.”
Sadly, a second black man has died in Buck’s home
Protests erupted Tuesday outside the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck, with activists calling for Buck’s arrest after a man was found dead in the apartment early Monday — 17 months after a deceased male escort was discovered there.
“Arrest Ed Buck, prosecute Ed Buck, and then a jury needs to convict Ed Buck,” activist Jasmyne Cannick said to the crowd gathering outside the California apartment Monday night. “This man has had two dead bodies in his house, and he is still in his house.”
Said another demonstrator: “This man is a danger to our community.”
Neighbors of Buck’s, who were drawn out of their homes as a result of the protest, said they have the same questions as everyone else and have made their own calls to police, according to FOX11.
It seems unlikely Buck will face charges:
In July of last year, prosecutors declined to file charges against Buck in the death of Moore. According to a coroner’s report, Buck’s apartment was full of drug paraphernalia, including 24 syringes containing brown residue, five glass pipes with white residue and burn marks, a plastic straw with possible white residue, clear plastic bags with white powdery residue and a clear plastic bag containing a piece of crystal-like substance.
Despite Moore’s writings:
In a December 2016 entry, Moore wrote: “I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that. Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth it was very painful, but after all the troubles, I became addicted…”
In his final entry, on Dec. 3, 2016, Moore wrote: “If it didn’t hurt so bad, I’d kill myself, but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now.”
It’s good to be a democrat with powerful democrat friends, you know? I’m trying to imagine a scenario involving a Republican that would remain this quiet.
Will they give the money back? Anyone see Kevin Spacey lately?
