Top Clinton And Obama Donor Ed Buck Arrested In Connection To Murder.
Ed Buck, a prominent Democratic donor and political activist, was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who suffered an overdose at Buck’s West Hollywood apartment last week, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said.
Prior to this time ,Buck is known as an animal-rights and LGBTQ activist who has donated to Democratic politicians such as Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Gov. Gavin Newsom, has also donated more than $500,000 to a range of Democratic groups. Buck came under investigation in January after 55-year-old Timothy Dean was found dead of an accidental methamphetamine overdose in his apartment. It was the second such death in two years, following the July 2017 death of Gemmel Moore, 26. The January episode prompted many Democrats to cut ties with Buck.
Despite Buck’s arrest, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama still aren’t saying what they will do with money they received from Democratic megadonor Ed Buck, even after he was charged Tuesday with running a drug house where two men died of overdoses and months after other top Democrats have tossed aside Buck’s contributions.
