Hi there,

If you think Democracy Now!’s reporting is a critical line of defense against war, climate catastrophe and fascism, please make your donation of $10 or more right now. Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Los Angeles: Dead Man Found in Home of Top Democratic Donor

HeadlineJan 09, 2019

Los Angeles police have found a man’s dead body inside the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck. The deceased man’s identity has not been revealed, but police have said he is black, making him the second black man to be found dead inside Buck’s home. In July 2017, 26-year-old Gemmel Moore was found naked in Buck’s living room after he overdosed. Buck was not charged in Moore’s death, but authorities now say they will review their investigation. Ed Buck has been a vocal supporter of various Democratic politicians and causes for years and donated to the campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
