Prominent Dem donor ran drug den: prosecutor

A prominent Democratic donor, Edward Buck, has been arrested and charged with running a drug den at his home in West Hollywood.

The 65-year old businessman is a well known activist in Californian politics.

He's donated to both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Prosecutors have accused him of injecting methamphetamine into a 37-year-old man who overdosed in September.

The man lived, but Buck is facing charges of battery, administering the drug, and operating a drug den.

Buck's home has been under scrutiny for drug use twice before.

In March NBC News, citing the Los Angeles Sheriff's office, reported that a man was found dead at Buck's residence of a methamphetamine overdose.

And then in 2017, another man was found dead at the home of meth overdose. NBC said both incidents were ruled accidental.

LA County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement, quote, "I remain deeply concerned for the safety of people whose life circumstances may make them more vulnerable to criminal predators,"

If convicted, he could face over five years in prison.

Buck's attorney, Seymour Amster, told Fox News that he would not comment on the arrest.
