A major Dem donor who was found with a dead male escort in his residence has been cleared of all charges. Fox News reports:
Prosecutors have declined to file charges against major Democratic donor Ed Buck in the case of Gemmel Moore, a male escort who was found dead inside Buck’s West Hollywood home last summer.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said the “admissible evidence is insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt” that Buck gave Moore drugs or is responsible for his death in a document dated July 26, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Moore, 26, was found by police on July 27, 2017, inside the apartment of Buck, 63. Buck, a well-known figure in LGBT political circles, has given more than $500,000 to a range of Democratic groups and candidates — including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
The document reportedly cited an inadmissible search and seizure, but did not provide details.
Not attempting prosecution only fuels speculation that Buck was too well connected to be charged.
