California Democrat Ted Lieu has cut ties with his financial backer Ed Buck after a second dead gay black man was discovered in his house. The Free Beacon reports:
The campaign of Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu announced Tuesday night it would be distancing itself from $18,500 in contributions the congressman has received in recent years from liberal donor Ed Buck after the Washington Free Beacon inquired about the money.
The Advocatereported that an unidentified “young African American man” died in Buck’s apartment early Monday morning, marking the second time an individual has died in Buck’s West Hollywood apartment. Gemmel Moore, a male escort, died in Buck’s residence during the summer of 2017. Moore’s death was ruled an accidental methamphetamine overdose.
“I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that,” Moore wrote in his journal in December 2016. “Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth.”
The Los Angeles district attorney did not bring charges against Buck for Moore’s death at the time, claiming that there was “insufficient evidence” to do so. Buck has maintained his innocence for the death.
Calls for Buck to be arrested are already ringing throughout California and the country, and this could end up being a big point of contention between Establishment Democrats and Progressives.
What? He is not charged because he is a Democratic Doner? What happened to no one should be above the Law? If Buck gave that guy his first injection then he should be arrested for murder. He dealt the needle and the guy died? WTF? Murder plain and simple. Buck is a Billion air and a Democrat and that means he can go free???
All of these comments are so right about the charge that should be made against this man. There should be others that are blamed too,Pelosi lives in Ca.,she also should be focused on. I would think she got donations from him too,we have seen that Hillary did. This should be brought out as more blood on the D’s hands for not stopping the illegals,they help them to get these drugs in here.
I have thought for years that the cartels are paying off people in the Congress, mostly Demorats but probably others as well, like maybe Flake or any of a few more RINO’s. Demirats are totally against the wall because they know that it would drastically cut down on all these illegal and deadly drugs coming from south of the border. Those money trails need to be found and followed and when those that are guilty are found, they need to be indicted and tried and convicted and thrown into prison for MANY years. The same thing for all the human smuggling. No doubt a lot of the same people are guilty there as well.
