Elder Patriot – Another longtime Democratic donor is at the center of a sex scandal that has resulted in the deaths of at least two black male prostitutes.
On July 27, 2017, Gemmel Moore, then 26, was found dead at the home of Ed Buck, longtime Clinton supporter and Democrat donor.
The L.A. County Coroner’s office ruled Moore’s to be the result of an overdose of methamphetamine. A coroner’s report said drug paraphernalia was found in the home, along with sex toys and clear plastic bags containing what was suspected to be methamphetamine.
The L.A. County District Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute Buck saying the evidence is “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore. Likewise, the admissible evidence is insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that suspect Buck furnished drugs to Gemmel Moore or that suspect Buck possessed drugs.”
The Advocate has reported:
Since Moore’s death was classified as an accidental overdose, numerous young black gay men have alleged that Buck has a fetish for shooting drugs into black men he picks up off the street or on hookup sites. Moore had written about Buck injecting him with dangerous drugs before his death.
In December of 2016 Moore made this entry in his personal journal:
“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 of crystal meth.”
Earlier today, the body of another young black man was seen on a gurney being removed from the West Hollywood apartment of Ed Buck causing community activists like Jasmyne Cannick to accuse Los Angeles officials of failing to prosecute Buck back in 2017 because of his contributions to powerful politicians like Hillary Clinton, California governor Jerry Brown, L.A. mayor Eric Garcetti, and numerous local West Hollywood council members.
Now, another member of that community is dead.
