The body of another young black man found at the West Hollywood apartment of Ed Buck — a prominent Democratic donor who allegedly has a fetish for drugging sex workers. advocate.com/crime/2019/1/0…
Buck was investigated previously by authorities after the death of Gemmel Moore, who died of a methamphetamine overdose in Buck's home in July 2017. Moore's death was classified as an accidental.
“I honestly don’t know what to do. I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that” wrote Moore. “Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth it was very painful, but after all the troubles, I became addicted to the pain and fetish/fantasy”
His last entry, dated Dec. 3, 2016 reads: “If it didn’t hurt so bad, I’d kill myself but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now."

Local news showed video surveillance of Moore’s body being removed from Buck’s house as another young man was just arriving. Almost implying that Buck planned to keep on “partying” even after the death of Moore in his house.
Read that again, while Moore's body was being removed another young black man arrived. Authorities had to tell the young man to go away. How depraved is this? Watch the video in the above tweet if you haven't.
Buck has given hundreds of thousands of dollars of Democratic causes and candidates over the years. His Facebook page boasts dozens photos of him with everyone from presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to Governor Jerry Brownand even Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
Screenshots from online gay dating sites shows Buck using the word "n***er" freely.
Eric Bauman, chair of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party and California Democratic Party who claims to have been falsely accused of “engaging in inappropriate behavior with 14- and 16-year-old boys.” is seen here with Buck and Adam Schiff
The list of Ed Bucky political contributions to prominent Democrats is truly a list of who's who including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, Ted Lieu, Krysten Sinema and Raja Krishnamoorthi to name a few.
He gave to Gavin Newsom and Jerry Brown on the state level. Notice how nobody has returned any of his campaign contributions?
I'm quoting from Jasmyne Cannick's website. She's delved deep into the abyss of this man's depravity
Only a prominent Democrat contributor could get away with serial abuse and drugging of young gay black men and have virtually no mainstream media coverage

Here's confirmation of his political ties.
Look at the extreme right hand column, the names are surprisingly unsurprising.

This article goes into graphic detail including photographs of Ed Buck along with young black men. Some taken by black male sex workers. Read at your own risk.

West Hollywood Councilmember John D’ Amico with Buck.
And of course no photo journal would be complete without Governor moonbeam posing with the depraved and the criminally insane.
Steve Martin, former WeHo mayor, City Councilmember on Ed Buck: “You can quote me on that.  – If there was ever anybody in West Hollywood whose bed you expect a dead body to turn up in, it was Ed Buck.”

A petition for a restraining order filed by a marriage and family therapist who Buck came to see in 2002:
“…He talked of narcolepsy and seemed to want amphetamines,” the therapist, James E. d’Jarnette testifies in the court documents.
"When I told him I am not a medical doctor and could not prescribe medications, but could talk to him about his feelings and interpersonal relationships, defendant leaned forward aggressively, began shouting and behaved irrationally…”
D’Jarnette’s 2002 complaint further states that Ed Buck continued for days to harass him by posting strange fliers defaming him throughout his building, and by phoning him, allegedly at one point threatening to make the therapist feel his (Buck’s) pain.
Damar Love (pseudonym) was a commercial sex worker who details his last visit to Ed Buck’s house:
“I was at Ed’s house and I fell asleep. I woke up because I felt a prick on my arm. My arm was tied down and it was red."
" I got myself untied and I grabbed a taser Ed had on his table. He had two tasers and we both had one pointing at each other. He ran to the back of the apartment and I used his phone to get an Uber and got the hell out of there.”
Edward Bernard Peter Buckmelter (he changed his last name to Buck in 1983) was born into a middle-class family in Steubenville, Ohio, on Aug. 24, 1954. When he was six he moved with his parents, a brother and two sisters to Phoenix, Ariz.
Buck came out to his parents as gay at the age of 16 and, while attending college, won a three-month internship that took him to Yugoslavia. Buck stayed in Europe for 5 years, living in Paris and Amsterdam, where he worked as a fashion model and appeared in movies and magazines
He worked for the Arizona franchise of Rapid Information Services, a business owned by a friend that provided driver’s license information to insurance companies.
Buck bought it out of bankruptcy renamed it Gopher Courier and sold it for “more than a million dollars profit.”
Buck found new meaning in his life with the election in 1987 of Evan Mecham, a Republican, as Arizona’s 17th governor.
Buck launched a successful effort to impeach Mecham, leading the Arizona Republic to describe Buck as a “millionaire, self-acknowledged homosexual and registered Republican destined to go down in history as one of Arizona’s most unlikely political figures”

It also resulted in publicity about Buck’s arrest for “public sexual indecency” in an adult bookstore in 1983. Buck pleaded guilty, paid a fine, and the charge was dismissed. He claimed a cop had seen him grab the crotch of a friend,
Buck also was called out for trying to get a drugstore to fill a fake prescription for Percocet.
Buck said he had made a copy of an existing prescription and needed to fill it because of pain from a root canal.
Buck was indicted by a Maricopa (Ariz.) County grand jury on a charge of “attempting to obtain a narcotic through fraud or deceit.” A judge agreed to dismiss charges against Buck if he would be tested weekly for drug use for one year.
Notice the pattern emerge?
Buck switched political parties, hosting a fundraiser for the Gay and Lesbian Political Campaign Fund ’90 in 1989 at his Squaw Peak home, with openly gay U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) as a special guest.
Buck “retired” to West Hollywood in 1991.
In 2007 he made an unsuccessful run for a seat on the City Council. In that campaign, he teamed up with Steve Martin and Heavenly Wilson to challenge incumbents John Heilman, Abbe Land and Sal Guarriello, all of whom were re-elected.
Buck was featured on CNN and other news channels when he attended a town hall meeting and interrupted Meg Whitman, who was running as the Republican candidate for governor of California. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie went face-to-face with Buck and asked him to stop.
From Jasmyne A. Cannick: photos of
Gemmel “Juelz” Moore's journal.
This are the words of infinite sadness and despair.
Truly heartbreaking.
I realize this thread completely spiraled out of control. But I just had to exhaust my indignation with exertion in the hope that posting everything I could find would somehow help highlight the predatory depravity of a man who inexplicably roams free.
