Another major Democratic donor is engulfed in a shocking scandal involving prostitution, drugs, and black men dying — and his connection to the Clinton family makes the entire thing that much more sickening.
Two young black men have been found dead in the past 18 months inside the apartment of Ed Buck, a 64-year-old white millionaire who has spent decades donating serious money to prominent Democrats.
Buck has donated over $116,000 in the last decade to Democrats — including $1,500 to former President Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns and $4,850 to Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 bid.
But his donations aren’t the issue, it’s the fact that two black men have been found dead in his home after they were hired as prostitutes and allegedly died from crystal methamphetamine overdoses in his home.
In July 2017, Buck bought a plane ticket for a 26-year-old man named Gemmel Moore to fly from his home in Texas to his apartment in West Hollywood, California.
Within 24-hours, Moore had died of an overdose.
Moore’s body was found beside “multiple syringes with brown residue, a scale, several lighters and torches, a straw with white residue and burn marks, plastic bags with whiter powdery residue and a clear plastic bag containing a crystal-like substance,” according to the complaint and an autopsy report.
Police say the death was an accident, but Moore’s mother, La Tisha Nixon, is going public with some shocking evidence.
In her 12-count civil complaint against Buck, Nixon added new charges this month against the Democratic donor: human trafficking and distribution of private sexually explicit materials.
The added causes of action claim Buck “knowingly utilized interstate commerce for the purpose of recruiting, enticing and transporting” Moore from Texas to Los Angeles, for the purposes of “commercial sex acts.”
“They claim Buck paid for Moore’s transportation and promised to pay Moore for his time. The complaint also alleges Buck violated Moore’s right to privacy by distributing a sexually explicit video recording of him to one of several unnamed defendants in April of 2019,” reports The Daily Beast.
Several gay prostitutes have claimed that Buck often used the same strategy: he would lure poor black men back to his apartment and reportedly inject them with dangerous levels of crystal meth before their sexual encounter.
Buck “would excitedly encourage (Gemmel) to increase his dosage by saying, ‘more, more, and I’ll give you $500 more,’” Nixon said.
At the height of the 2016 election, Moore called his mom and told her one of Hillary Clinton’s donors “shot me up with something I don’t even know what it is.”
Moore showed her a journal that said, “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.”
Moore was so depressed, he wrote, “If it didn’t hurt so bad I’d kill myself but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now.”
Immediately after Moore died, police ruled it was an “accidental overdose.”
In January 2019, less than 18 months later, another black man died in Buck’s apartment the exact same way.
Buck paid a 55-year-old man named Timothy Dean to come to his apartment for another escapade, and it ended with the black man dying in the exact same way — an overdose.
Dean’s roommate told authorities, “I’ve never seen him on drugs, ever.”
Nixon, the mother of the first black man who died, thinks the police are letting Buck “get away with it” because he is prominent and wealthy.
“I just think they don’t care,” Nixon said.
The heat is on the Democratic Party — and a few politicians are trying to distance themselves.
In addition to donations to Obama and Clinton, here are just a few of the top Democrats that Buck has donated to:
- $7,900 to California Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu over a period of time. (Lieu gave the money back after both black men died).
- $26,100 to Arizona Democrat Sen. Krysten Sinema over the years. (She returned three of the donations, totaling $7,800).
- Buck gave $2,700 to California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff.
- Buck also donated to former Democratic Congressman Barney Frank, former Democratic Sen. Joe Donelly, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Will every single Democrat give back Buck’s filthy money and condemn him?
