Top Obama Bundler Arrested For Child Rape And Sodomy, Media Stays Silent

Free Republic

Prominent Democrat Terrence P. Bean has been indicted for sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy with his boyfriend in a hotel room. He was arrested at his home in southwest Portland on Wednesday and charged with two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree sex abuse. Portland police tracked down the 15-year-old boy whose testimony helped lead to the sex abuse indictment against Bean and his former boyfriend, Kiah L. Lawson. Bean and Lawson allegedly set up an encounter with the teen through the iPhone app “Grindr”. The popular app is a mobile social network that helps gay men find other local gay men or just curious men, for dating. The app advertises, “Meet the men nearest you with GPS.”

On Sept. 27, 2013, Bean, 66, and Lawson, 25, are accused of having sex with the 15-year-old boy at a Eugene hotel. Friday afternoon, Lawson pleaded not guilty to the three counts. Lawson’s attorney, Jeffrey Dickey, said “The surprising thing to me is Kiah was indicted in this case because it was Kiah who helped authorities find this kid.” He went on to say, “If someone is going to cooperate and be helpful for the police there should be some kind of reward for that. It could have a chilling effect on others coming forward.”

Bean’s attorney, Kristen Winemiller, said her client has been cooperating with authorities and that they look forward to clearing his name. It isn’t clear if Bean or Lawson knew that the boy was under age. The Lane County indictments follow an extremely unstable relationship between the two men. The problems allegedly started when Lawson found Bean was secretly videotaping his sexual encounters with Lawson and a handful of other men. Bean’s attorney claims Bean was not engaged in any illicit use of security cameras. She said, “Terry has a security system in the home which has been used for no purpose beyond the manner in which a security system is typically used, ” This story was first reported by the local press, and there have been vague references to sexual trouble for Bean and Lawson since June, but the national media has not picked it up.

Terry Bean is the co-founder of two of the biggest national campaign groups and raised more than $500,000 for Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election bid. Bean is a revered character among the gay rights activist community and with the Democratic Party. He helped to form the Human Rights Campaign and the Gay And Lesbian Victory Fund. A search of the Federal Election Commission’s campaign-finance database turns up thousands in donations every cycle by Bean to the Democratic Party’s most powerful leaders, including Hillary Clinton, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Sen. Dick Durbin, and Rep. Barney Frank, among others. Photos of Bean posted online show him flying on Air Force One with Obama.

Confirmed: Obama Bundler Caught Working With al-Qaeda Linked Group

Obama bundler Jodie Evans and Code Pink, the leftist group she co-leads, have been found to be working with a group whose leaders have recently been declared terrorists and al Qaeda supporters by the Treasury Department.

This is not the first time the Democratic Party allied group has been caught in bed with terrorists. As this writer has reported over the years, Code Pink works with terrorists, state sponsors of terrorists, the Democratic Party and President Barack Obama against the United States in the war on terror.

This most recent Code Pink tie to terrorists involves al Karama, a so-called human rights group. A report published this week by the Washington Free Beacon about Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) scheduling a meeting with a representative from the al Karama in November about the Obama administration’s use of armed drones to kill suspected terrorists prompted an examination by this writer of Code Pink’s alliance with al Karama.

Mohammad Al Ahmady, the Yemen director for Geneva-based NGO Al Karama, was expected to brief Reps. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), and Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) the morning of the Nov. 19, according to press release from Grayson’s office.

Ahmady, who also serves as a top official in an al Qaeda-linked Yemeni political party, did not attend because of visa issues. The State Department said it could not comment on visa matters.

Several Al Karama officials have faced terrorism allegations. Al Karama’s founder and current president Abdul Rahman Naimi was designated as a terrorist and al Qaeda supporter by the U.S. Treasury Department in December, along with the group’s Yemen representative Abdulwahab Al-Humayqani. Al Karama’s legal director, Rachid Mesli, is currently wanted for terrorism charges in Algeria.

Unreported by the Free Beacon was that the meeting was likely arranged by Code Pink, which has worked with Grayson in the past, and had hosted an anti-drone conference in Washington the previous weekend. Also unreported by the Free Beacon was Code Pink’s history of working with al Karama in Yemen.

The Free Beacon report keys off a press release by Grayson that listed the anti-drone delegation that was to meet with him, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL). Most of the delegation that was listed on the press release was also listed as speakers at Code Pink’s anti-drone conference.

WHAT: Congressional briefing on U.S. drone strikes in Yemen

A spokesman for Grayson told the Free Beacon Mohammad al-Ahmady did not attend the meeting and noted that the terrorist designation for al-Ahmady’s group al Karama was not in place at the time the meeting was scheduled.

Last June, Code Pink traveled to Yemen and met with the father of slain al-Qaeda spiritual leader Anwar al-Awlaki. While in Yemen with Code Pink, Obama bundler Jodie Evans sought donations for families of drone victims and Yemenis held at the U.S. terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Code Pink also worked with al Karama while in Yemen, according to report on al Karama’s website.

Yesterday, 17 June 2013, Yemeni and American activists organized a sit-in in front of the American embassy in Sanaa to protest against drone attacks in the context of American counter-terrorism policy, and to denounce the inability of the Obama administration to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. This campaign, launched under the slogan “Human Dignity” in April 2013 by Alkarama and other human rights organizations in Yemen, aims for the closure of Guantanamo and Bagram detention centers. Several members of Code Pink, a pacifist American organization, joined Alkarama and Hood yesterday to show their support to the families of Guantanamo detainees and pay a tribute to the victims of American airstrikes.

It is long past time the U.S. government designates Code Pink a terrorist support group for its work with terrorists, terrorist groups and state sponsors of terrorism.

It is also long past time President Obama and the Democratic Party are called to account for their ties to the al Qaeda tied group Code Pink.
