LOS ANGELES — A dead man was found early Monday in the Los Angeles-area apartment of the Democratic fundraiser Ed Buck, authorities said — the second time a body has been discovered in his home in the last year and a half.

The dead man, whose identity wasn't disclosed, was found at 1:05 a.m. (4:05 a.m. ET) in Buck's apartment in West Hollywood after someone called 911, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Charles Moore, who said that while the Homicide Bureau was investigating, the cause of death remained unknown.

Federal election records show that Buck, 63, who has advocated for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues for decades, has donated more than $53,000 to Democratic candidates and to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee since 2008.

In July 2017, authorities cleared Buck in the death of Gemelle Moore, 26, a gay male escort whose body was found in the same apartment after investigators declared his death to have been the result of an accidental overdose of crystal methamphetamine.

Investigators reopened the case last year after Moore's friends and family raised concerns that his political connections might have contributed to the decision. Prosecutors declined to bring charges in July, saying there was insufficient evidence. Buck resigned last year as a member of the steering committee of the Stonewall Democratic Club, a Los Angeles LGBT political group, in the wake of the questions surrounding Moore's death.

The sheriff's department said Monday that Buck was present during both incidents and that investigators were reviewing the 2017 case again.

Buck's attorney, Seymour Amster, told NBC News on Monday that Buck wasn't in custody and hadn't been charged in connection with Monday's death. He said the man was a "longtime friend" of Buck's who asked to come over.

"Ed was reluctant, but the friend was insistent, so Ed allowed the friend to come over," Amster said. A short time later, the man "began exhibiting bizarre behavior," which prompted Buck to call 911, Amster said.

Buck first came to prominence in Arizona during the 1980s, when he led the successful drive to impeach Republican Gov. Evan Mecham, who had been widely denounced for remarks critical of the LGBT community and members of racial minority groups. Mecham was removed from office in 1988 in connection with allegations of misuse of campaign funds but was acquitted at his criminal trial later in the year.

Buck made headlines again in 2010 when he heckled Meg Whitman, a Republican candidate for governor of California, at a rally in Los Angeles. Chris Christie, then the governor of New Jersey, who was at the rally, stepped off the stage and confronted Buck. In an interview with MSNBC at the time, Buck called Christie a bully who was trying to intimidate him.

He donates money and stands up for the LGBT loudly. That may be his saving grace.
What does that mean? That he let rent boys OD in his home, but he can't be all bad because he works for lgbt causes and donates money to politicians?
Because he looks like a sordid character to me.

It means its not what you know its who ya know. Whose ass you kiss, donate money too and knowing when to speak up, to who and what is going to get people most worked up about. He did all those things in just the right order and carried each task out as if it was second nature.
That is what is going to save his ass. That is my opinion of how he will yet again get away with it. Has nothing to do if I think its right or wrong.

One corpse and they could spin the narrative or pretend it didn't happen.
But after the second corpse..... even politicians will reject this toxic guy.

Hillary donor is pictured with skeletal homeless young black drug addict he called 'n****r', ordered to wear white long johns and injected with meth for $300 - as cops probe TWO deaths at his home
  • WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
  • Edward Buck, a Hillary Clinton donor, is being investigating by LA County Sheriff's Department over the deaths of Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean, who both overdosed at his apartment within an 18-month period
  • An image obtained by DailyMail.com shows Buck smoking meth with a thin, drug-addicted homeless black man in his apartment - a partner he found on the street and offered $300 to carry out his 'fetish' requests
  • It shows the 63-year-old wearing tighty-whities and sitting beside the man he paid while they both watch porn on a television screen in the living room of the wealthy donor's West Hollywood apartment
  • The picture was taken in 2017 at the end of three years of encounters between Buck and the 30-year-old in which the older man would call him 'my n****r buddy', 'my straight n****r buddy', 'and 'black boy'
  • The man, who has since died of an unrelated illness after his encounters with Buck, left a detailed account of what happened between them in a series of encounters which he said turned him into a meth addict
  • DailyMail.com heard the recording in which Buck engaged in degrading sex practices, including watching the man defecate and once choked him when he refused to get out on Buck's orders
  • Buck had an area he called 'the gates of hell' near the doorway to his apartment where he would photograph the men he paid for sex, and trawled Los Angeles' Skid Row to pick up black men calling one 'my crack baby'

So did he force the men to come to his home?
Does it matter ? Does it make him any less of a predator ? Do white collar criminals use force when they prey on people ... ? No they don't ... they find a weak spot and exploit it and this guy is no different. He picked marginalised victims ... drug addicts and corner cowboys. He's like any other trick, and tricks are looking for either affection or someone to demean and abuse.

It does matter. Not cause I care, or you care or if anyone cares. I wasn't questioning if he is a predator or criminal or anything. I simply asked if he forced them to come to his home. I was simply asking cause I figure his high priced lawyer will use that... nevermind.

Remember, the ignore feature is your friend ..
Once I started using it, I couldn't stop .. :hilarious:

I rarely, if ever, read any of those over the top, annoying, idiotic posts unless they're made by someone I haven't yet put on ignore ..

I think y'all are missing something. He doesn't get away with shit because of his political ties. It's because he's RICH. The wealthy will always come out on top; it doesn't matter which party they donate to.
Just look at the amount of corruption on both sides. No rich guy ever gets convicted. Just saying.

Does force always involve violence ... ??? Does abuse always involve physical force ?
But for the sake of argument lets say they went willingly ... the victims are still marginalised, there was still illicit sex (not gay, but paid for) and there are drugs and corpses. Plural ... now.
I think he is going to get a few years.

And i never respond to idiotic posts ... Oh wait ... yes i do !!! The ignore button is for weak ... thin skinned people ... or otherwise snow flakes who melt when they read a post on a internet forum. We (not you) were just talking about this the other day. Nice try though !
