Major Hillary Clinton donor and all-around Democrat backer Ed Buck has been arrested for operating a drug house and providing meth amphetamines after one of his victim’s overdosed.
Turns out, Buck was a real sleazy character, as this is the third homeless man connected to him that has overdosed with meth, the other two died.
Somehow, Ed Buck never faced charges despite the whole world knowing about his sick predilections.
No word on if the Democrats still welcome his money, but they must have known the guy was a creep for years and said nothing as this is a long-term pattern of misbehavior.
ABC reported that Democratic donor Ed Buck, who has been subject to protests and calls for prosecution in the overdose deaths of two men at his West Hollywood home, was arrested on Tuesday in connection with a third overdose, police reports say.
Prosecutors are seeking his bail be set at $4 million.
A bail motion from the Los Angeles district attorney’s office states that Ed Buck is “a violent, dangerous sexual predator. He mainly preys on men made vulnerable by addition and homelessness.” According to the documents, Buck personally administered “dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims” and is “a predator with no regard for human life.”
Activists have been calling for his arrest, claiming that he is responsible for the deaths of Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55. Both black gay men were found in Buck’s West Hollywood’s apartment less than two years apart. The coroner ruled that both deaths were caused by methamphetamine overdoses.
On Tuesday, District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s office said that Buck, 65, has now been charged with operating a drug house and providing meth to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week.
Buck was charged with one felony count each of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house.
Authorities say Buck injected the victim with meth on Sept. 11 at Buck’s home in the 1200 block of Laurel Avenue in West Hollywood. The man suffered an overdose but survived.
