Part 2 – Terrence Bean
Here is his biography from his web site: Source: WintryKnight.com
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.
A pioneer in the movement, Terry Bean, started advocating politically for gay rights in the early 1970′s in Eugene, Oregon. Early successes resulted in the passing of a city gay rights ordinance, which, while was later overturned by voters, set the framework for grassroot organizations and strategies which quickly followed—establishing a pattern of victories which have continued well into the new millennium.
In 1979, Bean helped to organize the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, the first such highly visible effort to empower a minority while educating a majority.
After the march on Washington, Terry Bean turned his focus to the national level co-founding the Gay Rights National Lobby and the Human Rights Campaign Fund. These groups merged to become today’s Human Rights Campaign – HRC.
A life-long Democrat, Bean has been a major fund raiser for party candidates both nationally and locally in Oregon including President Bill Clinton, Oregon Governor Barbara Roberts and President Barack Obama. Bean has served on many Democratic committees; including on the DNC – National Democratic Committee, as chair for the Oregon Finance Committee for Obama and as a member of the National Finance Committee.
Washington Times – By Dave Boyer, November 25, 2014, “Dem fundraiser charged with child sex abuse met Obama often, flew on Air Force One”
In 1991 Mr. Bean co-founded the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, a political action committee to raise money for gay and lesbian candidates. He has hosted fundraisers at his Portland home for Mr. Obama, Bill Clinton and Al Gore. Terry Bean is a “bundler.” A bundler is a person that collects a lot of money from a lot of sources to help a politician win an election. Terry Bean was Obama’s most successful bundler.
Bean raised more than a half-million dollars for Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012, last visited the White House on May 30 when he met with the president, first lady Michelle Obama and political adviser David Simas. White House visitor logs show that Mr. Bean, co-founder of the Human Rights Campaign, a leading gay rights group, also has visited the White House on at least six other occasions since June 2012. On one visit in 2013, Mr. Bean brought along Kiah Lawson, described in news reports as his ex-boyfriend, who is also charged with sexually assaulting the juvenile.
Bean has been an influential supporter of Democratic candidates. Federal Election Commission records show that the real estate developer has contributed thousands of dollars to Democrats, including former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. He also has contributed to Republican candidates, including former Oregon Sen. Gordon Smith and former Rep. Jim Kolbe of Arizona, the first openly gay GOP lawmaker in Congress.
…November 19, 2014 . Authorities in Oregon charged Mr. Bean and Mr. Lawson last week with two counts of third-degree sodomy and one charge of third-degree sex abuse after his indictment by a Lane County grand jury indictment. Mr. Lawson, 25, was charged with two counts of third-degree sodomy and with third-degree sex abuse.The White House had no comment on whether the president still considers Mr. Bean an ally. Some observers have credited Mr. Bean for helping to sway Mr. Obama into supporting same-sex marriage two years ago. “He has the president’s ear,” former Oregon Gov. Barbara Roberts once said of Mr. Bean. (Other articles credit Bean with preparing and lobbying to Obama for bathroom rights. Some have stated that the wording of Obama’s information comes almost word-for-word from HRC information.)
KOIN Channel 6 News – November 19, 2014 –
A founder of the country’s leading gay rights organization was arrested Wednesday on charges related to an incident with a 15-year-old boy last year. The Portland Police Bureau’s Sex Crimes Unit took Terrence Bean into custody at his home in Southwest Portland following a Lane County Grand Jury indictment. But Jeff Warila, a longtime neighbor of Bean’s Hayden Island residence, said he saw Bean bring younger-looking men to the condo and said he is not surprised by the charges. Warila said he saw Bean engaged in sexual acts with young-looking men through his kitchen window.
Willamette Week – November 4, 2015, “Previously Unreleased Police Interview Transcripts Suggest Terry Bean Knew His Alleged Sex Partner Was Under 18. New information has emerged about the 2013 events in Eugene.”
(In a previous article dated November 19, 2014 Willamette noted the following as quoted on a blog site but no longer available for search: Source
The arrest comes after a six-month investigation that began with allegations Bean secretly made video recordings of men having sex in his bedroom. As WW reported in June, Bean accused a former lover, Kiah Lawson, of attempting to extort him over the discovery of a hidden camera. In the spring, Bean sought to keep the allegations secret and tried to reach a $40,000 settlement with Lawson.
Lawson told WW that early this year he had discovered a hidden camera in a smoke detector above Bean’s bed. Lawson claimed he was in more than one video that was made without his knowledge, and that video recording also captured at least a half dozen men “in a state of nudity engaged in intimate acts with [Bean].”)
Followed up by information added in this article:
The problem began with a dispute between Bean and his former boyfriend, Kiah Lawson. Bean told the Multnomah County district attorney that Lawson and others were trying to extort money from him. Bean’s complaint led to a six-month police investigation that ironically turned up allegations against him. Most damaging were police interviews with Lawson, now 26, and a teenager who told police that, at age 15, he had a 2013 sexual encounter with Bean and Lawson in Eugene. A Lane County judge dismissed the case Sept. 1, 2015 after the alleged victim refused to testify. Prosecutors expressed frustration, noting that Bean had earlier offered the alleged victim a substantial payment if he agreed to drop the charges.
I leave it to the reader to consider the information found in these two posts. But I see not only a pattern of behavior from all involved but reasons to explain several Obama executive orders and administrative actions from DOJ to FBI and other Democrat congressmen as well as Obama concerning this whole troubling situation over the years. I can also see why Democrats and others in DC are in such a panic mode over Trump and all that WikiLeaks and others have uncovered.
It is highly interesting that not only did the case against Beam get dropped and that the young man disappeared but most of the information that mentions this has been suppressed across mainstream media except for a CNN November 23, 2014 video newscast. It’s also interesting that only a few non-mainstream sites still have information available except the CNN report. I wouldn’t be surprised if all of the sites including the CNN report are deleted quickly.
It certainly paints the Clintons and Obama in a dark light not just for ugly allegations now but for many years in the past. People have made conjectures and posted a lot of things on off-key sites but this along with all we know coming out about Pizza Gate makes everyone involved in DC seem guilty on a grander scale of a lot of things they hoped would never be uncovered.
The ties that bind are there for people but they have to search in unsuspecting places because of the censorship of the clean up crews for these skags and skanks.
