Major Obama, Bonamici funder arrested for sex abuse


by NW Spotlight

Nigel Jaquiss at Willamette Week is reporting that Terry Bean “was arrested today on charges of sex abuse in a case involving a 15-year-old boy.” Bean “will be charged with two counts of sodomy in the third degree, a felony, and sex abuse in the third degree, a misdemeanor.”

Bean is a very prominent Democratic figure in Oregon and nationally.

WW reports “He has also been a central figure in national Democratic politics. As WW reported in June: ‘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.'”

Terry Bean has also been a big supporter of Oregon’s U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D) – who can’t seem to distance herself from sexual predators. That support included a fundraiser for Suzanne Bonamici in Bean’s Portland SW Hills home back in January 2012. Bonamici was photographed there with former Oregon Gov. Barbara Roberts and the two were labeled a “Power Duo.” Bean was with Roberts and Bonamici again on election night 2012.

    Bonamici’s House District is so BLUE, embarrassed and angry red faced constituents just get swatted like a shoo fly high from Dem pan dandies.

      I’ve never understood why people think that because a single politician is a problem that the constituency should immediately change their entire political affiliation. Also unless Bonamici was procuring youth for corruption you are taking a personal crime and smearing others. Truly poor arguments.

        Wu unto you. Bonamici’s district is so Dem intonated, Kitzhaber could pardon Gary Haugen to ‘officiate’ the Kitz-Pajamas/Hayes-Cedes nuptials at the Temple of Nike and what’s Left of WASHCO would spill out onto the streets like a Will/Kate celebration.

    So, when does this come out in Blue Oregon? I guess they’re too busy covering Al Sharpton’s IRS troubles???

      Probably about as often as you see articles about Republicans, who are having problems, on here.

        Spready on the Left, insteady of what’s common sense on the right, Commence firing all the demzits formatting what’s left of Oregon. Immediately if not sooner.

    Oh the horror! A DEM homo “outed” as both a pedophile and “boyfriend” to a 20-something meth user. Too bad the ugly truth about you and your private lifestyle are becoming public. Here’s hoping you serve some time for your vile behavior.

    Wait a minute. Not that long ago, Oregon Catalyst had a post about the presumption of innocence.

    Apparently they only care about the presumption of innocence when the perpetrator is a police officer and the victim is an African American.
