    Government Corruption and the War Against Adult Entertainers

    Ed Buck is a wealthy, politically connected Californian who has been accused of having a dangerous sexual proclivity of hiring gay, Black men and then, perhaps without their knowledge, drugging them heavily. On July 27, 2017, Gemmel Moore, an escort, was found dead of a drug overdose and probable poisoning in Ed Buck’s home. Then, on January 7, 2019, another victim; Timothy Dean, an adult film performer and escort, was found dead under similar circumstances. Even though the available evidence seems to point to a pattern of abuse and possibly even murder, the investigations into these deaths have been criminally negligent.

    This may be because of Ed Buck’s history of donating to powerful politicians including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jerry Brown, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee as well as to human rights groups that should have been calling for thorough investigations – but failed to do so in the first instance and may be doing the same in the second. This strongly suggests government corruption abetting Ed Buck’s involvement in these deaths. This corruption made possible by the facts that adult entertainers are seen as disposable.

    The International Entertainment Adult Union (IEAU) demands:

        We demand an immediate and thorough investigation into the recent death of Timothy Dean. Those representing adult entertainers should be a part of this investigation.
        We demand an immediate re-opening of the investigation into the 2017 death of Gemmel Moore. Those representing adult entertainers should be a part of this investigation.
        We demand an immediate investigation into the handling of the original investigation of Gemmel Moore’s death by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Specifically, to answer why solid evidence and the past sexual patterns of Ed Buck were seemingly ignored. Those representing adult entertainers should be a part of this investigation.
        We demand an immediate investigation by the California Attorney General’s office as to how political corruption might have influenced both investigations into these deaths. Those representing adult entertainers should be a part of this investigation.
        We demand an end to government attacks against adult performers that de-humanize those involved in these industries. These attacks are usually described as ‘anti-trafficking’ measures but, in fact, are simply attempts to stereotype and degrade, arrest and punish, those involved in these industries. This includes measures like FOSTA/SESTA and others.
        We demand the addition of adult entertainers to the list of protected classes under the Hate Crime laws of the federal government.
        We demand that all of Ed Buck’s political donations be disclosed and that politicians who have received donations from Ed Buck turn that money over to charitable causes that support the rights of adult entertainers.

    The IEAU is a federally recognized labor union representing performers in industries where one must be over 18 to participate.
