If this guy had been a Republican he’d have been flayed alive in the media.
This is from his own website:
Terry Bean is a native Oregonian, successful real estate developer, and President and CEO of Bean Investment Real Estate, a private company that trades and invests in commercial real estate as well as large residential complexes. Along with these badges of honor, Terry Bean is often first recognized as a pioneer in the national civil rights movement, promoting full equality for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, queer/questioning communities. (GLBTQ)
Terry Bean is so well regarded as an activist that Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski declared August 23, 2008, to be “Terry Bean Equality Day” in recognition for the work he has done on LGBT rights causes since the 1970’s.
He loves himself. And the liberal elites love him too.
But he’s a nasty piece of work.
After a tip-off from an ex-boyfriend, Portland police tracked down a 15-year-old boy whose testimony helped lead to the sex abuse indictment against Bean. Prominent Democrat Terrence P. Bean and his former boyfriend, Kiah L. Lawson, are accused of setting up an encounter with the teen through the iPhone app Grindr, a mobile social network that helps men find “local gay, bi and curious guys for dating.”
The app advertises, “Meet the men nearest you with GPS.”
Bean, 66, and Lawson, 25, are accused of having sex with the boy at a Eugene hotel on Sept. 27, 2013.
A Lane County, Oregon grand jury indicted both on two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree sexual abuse
Bean donated over $500,000 for President Obama and the Democrats in 2012. He was rewarded with an Air Force One ride with Obama. As you can see in the video link HERE, the president also gave the developer a special shout-out at a fundraiser in Portland.
Conservative pundit, Michelle Malkin is spitting feathers:
While The New York Times has spilled gallons of ink on the campus rape epidemic, the GOP’s Mark Foley underage page scandal and the Catholic Church’s pedophilia problem, it has remained silent the past six months on the alleged child rape scheme of one of the Democratic Party’s most prominent campaign contributors and activists.
On Tuesday, the paper saw fit to run a 652-word A-section story on an obscure GOP aide who was forced to quit her job after criticizing Obama’s daughters on her Facebook page.
Nothing on Terry Bean.
She’s got a point.
