Clintons are back in the news but this time with somewhat if a twisted link.
Hilary Clinton’s donor for her previous election campaign has been charged for being part of the drug den.
Ed Buck, a one-time fashion model and well-known LGBT activist in Los Angeles, has allotted thousands to Democrats comprising Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Rep. Ted Lieu (Calif.). Lieu said before this year he would donate more than $18,000 in donations he obtained from Buck to LGBTQ and African American civil rights institutions.
Until the initial man’s death at his residence in 2017, Buck attended to on the Stonewall Democratic Club navigating committee, and also operated for West Hollywood City Council, CBS Los Angeles documented.
Campaign donor and activist in California politics, Edward Buck, was incarcerated Sept. 17 after an apparent methamphetamine overdose in his house. It would ensue two disastrous occurrences encompassing his property.
Buck, 65, is indicated in court documents of being a “Rude, dangerous sexual predator” who targeted men “made vulnerable by addiction and homelessness” by distributing them large amounts of narcotics as part of his “sexual fetishes.”
Prosecutors continued that he continued to inject men with drugs in spite of the two deaths that took place at his residence, which happened on July 2017 and January 2019.
After the most current overdose, Buck is accused of sustaining a drug house, battery causing severe injury and distributing methamphetamine, all felonies.
The two deaths continue to remain still under-identification and investigation, a Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office spokesman claims via email.
In the first case, 26-year-old Gemmel Moore perished of a methamphetamine overdose in Buck’s flat in July 2017.
He was found nude on a bed in the living room with syringes, sex toys and other drug equipment nearby, prosecutors wrote in Tuesday’s court papers.
The death was eventually ruled incidental — but Moore’s mother, LaTisha Nixon, drew scrutiny to the case after challenging that Buck might have administered the drugs to her son.
In his diary, the Los Angeles Times noted, Moore seemed to write: “I’ve become addicted to drugs and the terrible one at that. Ed Buck is the one to thank. He provided me my first injection of crystal meth.”
Almost one year after Moore’s death, prosecutors declared they did not have sufficient evidence to file tolls against Buck.
The 2nd man died after six months in January 2019.
Timothy Dean, 55, too was found in absurdly similar conditions, half-naked with his legs resting on a living room mattress and the rest of his body on the floor. As in Moore’s case, syringes, sex toys, and other drug equipment were found strewn around the room, prosecutors said.
