Terry Bean, the 66-year-old co-founder of gay lobby group Human Rights Campaign and a major fundraiser for Barack Obama's presidential campaigns, has been charged with the sexual abuse of a 15-year old boy in Portland, OR as reported by Nigel Jaquiss for Williamette Week:
No Oregonian has raised more money for President Barack Obama. At a 2009 Human Rights Campaign dinner, Obama called Bean a "great friend and supporter." The president in 2012 hosted Bean on Air Force One, and when Obama visits Oregon, Bean has had the honor of greeting him as the president gets off his plane.
Bean "has helped raise over $560,000 for Obama and the Democratic National Committee since 2011," and "White House visitor records list Bean's name 33 times" as reported by Chuck Ross for The Daily Caller.
Police also arrested Bean's 25-year-old former boyfriend Kiah Lawson for his alleged role in the child rape.
The national media largely has refused to cover the story which "is politically convenient for President Obama as he tries to pull off one of his riskiest political moves ever with his amnesty executive order" as reported by Brett M. Decker for USA Today:
If one of President George W. Bush's bundlers would have been charged with child rape, make no mistake about it, the media feeding frenzy would have been uncontrollable -- which would be legitimate given the severity of the allegation. The silence surrounding Terrence Bean exposes the national media's partisan double standard in obscene detail.
