WEST HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) — Prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ+ political activist Ed Buck was charged Tuesday with running a drug den out of his West Hollywood apartment and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who suffered an overdose last week, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office said.

Buck, 65, was charged with one felony count each of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house.

According to the DA’s office, Buck was accused with injecting the victim with methamphetamine at the defendant’s apartment in the 1200 block of Laurel Avenue in West Hollywood. The man survived.

The charges come after two other men died of drug overdoses at Buck’s dating back to 2017, prompting community outrage and calls for his arrest.

Can you be an LGBT activist if you keep pumping them full of drugs and killing them?

I remember Ed Buck as the the guy who ran the campaign to impeach Gov. Evan Mecham.  He inherited his money, and spends it on kooky projects.  He was Republican until 1988, and switched to Democrat in 1988, as a result of Republican intolerance of LGBT's.

He's not much of a political donor.  For a member of the posh elite, he has donated under $500,000, if that.  That wouldn't cover a window in his West Hollywood home.

He's prominent enough that his arrest made the news. How many other arrests made the news yesterday?

He does tend to be flamboyant, doesn't he.

So it was his flamboyancy that made it newsworthy?

Was he wearing a feather boa?

I suppose. He's done little that is really noteworthy. He's one of those guys who is just a character that the media likes.
