Disgraced Dem megadonor convicted in drug deaths

Ed Buck, a longtime, high-dollar donor to Democrat candidates and groups was convicted earlier this week in the overdose deaths of two men to whom he administered methamphetamine in exchange for sexual favors, as Fox News reports.

Buck, 66, who is known for donating significant sums to a host of liberal California politicians over the years, including Reps. Adam Schiff and Ted Lieu, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and Gov. Gavin Newsom, was found guilty on nine federal charges stemming from the deaths of Gemmel Moore in 2017 and Timothy Dean in 2019.

According to prosecutors, Buck made it a practice to lure young, poverty-stricken Black men to his Los Angeles apartment in order to carry out a sexual fetish that involved injecting them with drugs.

As Assistant U.S. Attorney Linsday Bailey described Buck’s conduct during closing arguments in the trial by saying, “He would find desolate, vulnerable victims and push meth on them over and over…until they went unconscious,” adding, “That’s what he liked about it – the power gave him sexual gratification.”

Following Moore’s death in Buck’s apartment, Fox News further noted, activists sought action from local prosecutors, but charges were slow in coming, a fact which family members of the victims attributed to the high-powered donor’s political connections and monetary resources.

After roughly four hours of deliberation, Buck was found guilty of two counts of methamphetamine distribution resulting in death, four counts of methamphetamine distribution, a count of maintaining a drug-involved premises, and two counts of enticement to travel in interstate commerce for purposes of prostitution, according to Los Angeles television station KTLA.

The convictions on the charges of drug distribution resulting in death carry mandatory minimum sentences of 20 years in prison, with the maximum possible sentence being life imprisonment with no change of parole, outcomes that are welcome news to the victim’s families.

“This man did some terrible things to human beings,” said Joann Campbell, sister to victim Timothy Dean. “Ed Buck will never harm anyone else, and I thank God for that,” said another of Dean’s sisters, Joyce Jackson, as NPR reported.

Activist Jasmyne Cannick, who fought for years to bring Ed Buck to justice, is relieved that he was convicted on all charges this week, says that when it comes to any real reaction from the California Democrats who received the predator’s monetary largesse over the years and arguably enabled his crimes, “The silence in Los Angeles is deafening.”
