One would have had to have been sleeping under a rock for the last year to not be aware of the unsavory exploits of major Democrat donor Ed Buck, who is currently in jail awaiting trial on drug charges related to the deaths of two men in his home, according to Fox. Buck is a “violent, dangerous sexual predator,” prosecutors said, according to Breitbart.
As such, people did a double-take when Buck’s name showed up on a list of supporters for 2020 Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). Warren’s campaign says Buck’s inclusion was “a mistake” and blamed “volunteers” for letting it slip through.
Who is Ed Buck?
Democrat mega-donor Ed Buck has long had a reputation as someone who uses his power and money to lure young black men into his inner circle.
He has been accused of plying them in with drugs and alcohol, then reportedly drugged them against their will with a rather ample supply of narcotics so he could do whatever he wanted with them.
In July 2017, a young man named Gemmel Moore overdosed in one of Buck’s love shacks. In Moore’s journal, he cited Buck as the originator of his eventually fatal addiction to crystal meth. However, Buck was never charged in connection with Moore’s death.
Then, in January 2019, another man was found dead from an overdose in Buck’s home. This man, Timothy Dean, was older than Buck’s usual prey, but his lifestyle fit the mold of where Buck generally did his hunting.
During his bail hearing, the prosecutor characterized Buck as someone who “mainly preys on men made vulnerable by addiction and homelessness,” according to BuzzFeed News.
On Warren’s list
What’s getting all the attention is a list of over 200 Obama campaign and administration alumni who have endorsed Warren rather than Obama’s VP Joe Biden.
After a reporter noticed that Buck’s name was on the list, Warren’s campaign stated the list had been put together by “volunteers” and put on Google Docs.

After becoming aware of the situation, the Warren campaign quickly had Buck’s name removed.
“This was a mistake considering Ed Buck was not staff or an alum. This was put together via Google Docs by some Obama alums, and they caught some non-staff that populated the list, but obviously, they missed one. They are removing it,” a campaign spokesperson told the Washington Examiner.
