Good riddance - 30 years in the slammer

| No Comments

An odious piece of work.  From the Los Angeles ABC affiliate:

Ed Buck sentenced to 30 years in prison in overdose deaths of 2 men at his West Hollywood apartment
Former Democratic donor Ed Buck was sentenced Thursday to 30 years in federal prison in connection with the overdose deaths of two men at his West Hollywood apartment.

Buck was found guilty last year of supplying methamphetamine to Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean, who died in separate incidents in July 2017 and January 2019, respectively.

Buck, now 67, lured young Black men who were often experiencing homelessness, addiction, and/or poverty to his apartment for sexually charged sessions in which he would inject them with methamphetamine and drug them with sedatives, with and without their consent, federal prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memorandum.

Down towards the end was this:

Buck -- who has donated more than $500,000 to mostly Democratic causes and served in 2016 as one of California's Electoral College members -- was convicted of two counts of distribution of controlled substances resulting in death.

"more than $500,000" - it was a lot more than $500,000 - the guy was a major bundler and fundraiser as well as money-man. Deeply involved. Doubt he will serve more than a couple years but it's a start...
