[Ed. – Ted Lieu is such a man of principles and high moral character!]
A California lawmaker said he’s ditching contributions from the deep-pocketed Democratic donor who was present when two men died in his home in separate incidents in under two years.
Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu said he would donate $18,500 in contributions from Ed Buck to not-for-profits that support African American and LGBTQ people such as the NAACP and Lambda Legal.
“I am deeply disturbed by the latest revelations of a second death by overdose at the home of Ed Buck,” Lieu said in a statement Tuesday.
“While we await the results of the law enforcement investigation, I am going to donate the contributions I have received from Mr. Buck to my federal campaign over the years.”
A 55-year-old man identified as Timothy Dean Thursday was found dead at Buck’s Los Angeles home early Monday morning, KTLA reported.
Buck’s lawyer said Dean had taken drugs before coming over.
In July 2017, a 26-year-old homeless man named Gemmel Moore, who worked as a prostitute died, of a methamphetamine overdose at the same apartment.
