Dem mega-donor Ed Buck was sentenced last week to 30 years in prison for “giving two men fatal doses of methamphetamine at his West Hollywood apartment”:

From the New York Times:

Ed Buck, a onetime Democratic donor and activist, was sentenced by a federal judge in Los Angeles on Thursday to 30 years in prison for giving two men fatal doses of methamphetamine at his West Hollywood apartment, prosecutors said.

The sentencing concludes Mr. Buck’s extraordinary turn from a prominent activist to a predator. The two men, Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean, died 18 months apart at what the Justice Department had called “party and play” sessions at Mr. Buck’s apartment. Prosecutors said he lured men to sex-fueled parties and drugged them from 2011 to 2019.

Judge Christina A. Snyder of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California sentenced Mr. Buck, 67, after he was found guilty in July 2021 of nine charges connected to methamphetamine distribution resulting in death, prostitution and maintaining a drug-involved premises, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California said in a statement on Thursday.

We suspect Buck’s race — white — and that of his victims — Black — and the recipients of his donations — Adam Schiff, Ted Lieu, Hillary Clinton — would have made it into the headlines IF this had been a GOP scandal:

It’s not even clear the New York Times article ran in the print edition:

And LOL at the “political donor” characterization:

Take note, New York Times.
