Pervert dem megadonor Ed Buck guilty of 9 felonies

Conviction of far-left darling of the hypocritical Arizona Republic unworthy of mention on its pages

Earlier this week, a Los Angeles federal jury, deliberating only four hours following a two-week trial, convicted wealthy democrat donor Ed Buck on charges that he injected indigent gay men with methamphetamine in exchange for sex, leading to two deaths and other overdoses, in the mattress-lined living room what was described as his Hollywood “house of horrors.” Court documents portray Buck as a “violent, dangerous sexual predator, who uses the bait of drugs, money, and shelter to lure men struggling with addiction and homelessness into his home, where he manipulates them into participating in his sexual fetishes.”

Buck, 66, was found guilty of nine felony counts including providing and injecting the drugs that led to the overdose deaths of Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55. A sentencing date has not yet been announced.

Arizonans will remember Buck (a name he altered from Buckmelter), as detailed in this 2019 post titled. “Deviant Dem megadonor Ed Buck finally arrested after 3rd man overdoses & Update.” Buck’s nefarious anti-Republican career took root in Phoenix, where he received ongoing praise and celebratory status in the local newspaper for being the driving force to take down newly elected Gov. Evan Mecham prior to his January 5, 1987 inauguration to his contrived impeachment conviction on April 4, 1988. The far left Arizona Republic cheered on Buck’s efforts against the former state senator, decorated World War II fighter pilot and POW, and a successful businessman. Evan Mecham was a devoted husband, father of seven, and active in his church, but he was a political conservative making him deserving of the wrath of the radical local newspaper, which daily vomited its multi-pronged, anti-conservative, vicious spew on him.

Governor Mecham was Donald Trump decades before President Donald Trump appeared on the political horizon.

Ed Buck lavished campaign donations on prominent state and federal (be sure to read the entire lists). Democrat candidates — Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Adam Schiff, were among the recipients of Buck’s generosity. Congressman Schiff, who represented the district where Buck lived was known to visit his home.

Buck has given more than $500,000 to a wide array of democrat groups and candidates, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (who Biden just nominated as the U.S. Ambassador to India), Gov. Gavin Newsom (currently facing a recall election) and L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey — obviously attempting to curry favor with powerful office holders who could influence his fate. His scheme worked. While in office, Lacey twice refused to prosecute Buck.

The DCCC reportedly received at least $5,000 from Buck. AZ Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s PAC, Getting Stuff Done, (GSD-PAC) was a recipient of Buck’s generosity, separate from his donations to her campaign, which she ultimately returned.

Those on the long list of leftists who willingly accepted Buck’s generosity remain mute, as does the duplicitous Arizona Republic, which couldn’t praise him enough when he led the impeachment against conservative Republican Gov. Evan Mecham. Now Buck’s conviction is unworthy of mention.

    The Arizona Repulsive is not a newspaper. It’s an arm of the dimocrap party

    Expecting any news on the convictions of the democrat funding pervert it adored is expecting too much. It’s been hemorrhaging subscribers faster than any other national Gannett newspaper for a reason. It’s unreliable and biased to the extreme. Why would anyone pay for leftist editorials and day old propaganda passing as news? I get my news from a wide variety of sources that don’t insult my intelligence, and I carry in my pocket.Tucker Carlson and Mark Levin round out my sources.

    Imagine the coverage if Ed Buck was a Republican!! It would rate full front page coverage. Try to imagine the editorial discussions about how to play down the guy they played up for so long. Hypocrites ALL.

  3. Trevor says:

    I’m sure Ed Buck loved Super RINO Burton Barr who loves tax increases and also loves that daughter of his who worked for John McCain and Janet Napolitano while she was Governor. And wasn’t Karrin Taylor Robson’s father thrown out of office by the voters for impeaching Governor Mecham?

    • Seen It All says:

      Your memory serves you well, Trevor. Carl Kunasek received a well deserved heave ho from the voters after his vote to impeach Gov. Mecham, on the flimsiest of trumped up charges.

    Arizona still has a print newspaper? You could have fooled me. I jog early every morning. Haven’t seen evidence of any newspapers in driveways in my neighborhood in a very long time.

    The fact that the Ed Buck story is covered up tells how this farce operates.

  5. Ms. Turley says:

    Gov. Mecham was such a “threat,” the democrat led hate machine came after him with a simultaneous recall, impeachment and contrived criminal trial in which he was found not guilty. Gov. Mecham was a patriot who was defamed for political gain. My father was so enraged, there were actually discussions about leaving Arizona. We ended up staying because my mother’s family was here and dad finally acquiesced to her desire to be close to them.

    I wonder if Hillary, Obama and Schiff will send Buck care packages in prison? He was certainly a help to them. I was amazed looking through those state and federal donor lists.

    • toughterry says:

      Buck will be Epsteined; he has many enemies inside and outside The Big House. Prison justice will kick in.
