A second young black man has been found dead in the home of huge Democratic party donor Ed Buck, the second in 18 months.

“The man died in Buck’s Laurel Avenue apartment between midnight and 2 a.m., Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster,” said according to Los Angeles Times. His name has not been released.

Amster reportedly said that the man died of an accidental overdose in Buck’s West Hollywood home, but was intoxicated before arriving at Buck’s.

“Buck previously was investigated for the death of another young man of color in his apartment — the 2017 overdose of Gemmel Moore, 26,” the report said. “Moore died of a methamphetamine overdose in Buck’s apartment in July 2017, according to a Los Angeles County coroner’s report. Paramedics found him naked on a mattress in the living room, which was littered with drug paraphernalia,” according to the report.

Moore’s mother questioned whether Buck’s position of power within the elite sphere of the Democratic party kept him out 0f legal trouble. A homicide investigation was opened, but charges were not filed as authorities cited lack of evidence.

Police recovered a journal among Moore’s possessions after his death, in which he wrote about his drug use at the hands of Buck.

“I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that,” Moore reportedly wrote. “Ed Buck is the one to thank, he gave me my first injection of chrystal [sic] meth. I just hope the end result isn’t death…. If it didn’t hurt so bad I’d kill myself but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now.”

Since at least 2011, Buck, a retired model, actor, businessman has donated thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and PACs. He donated to Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Calif.), Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, also a Democrat.

Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment

Birds of a feather flock together.

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
