Court documents say the men arranged a $200,000 payment to a 15-year-old boy to make sex abuse charges against Bean go away.Welcome to Portlandia. The attorney for the 15 year old victim and Bean's attorney worked to make the victim disappear in Bean's criminal trial (with a $200k settlement). I am not surprised by the alleged corruption to bury a crime with a connected rich Democrat--but that prosecutors in Oregon are bringing charges stemming from witness tampering related to the underlying settlement. I speculate that the authorities might be getting cooperation from the 15 year old's attorney (who is obviously in the bite of the line too--but not named in the story).
Terry Bean, a Portland-based high-profile Democrat donor & pioneering LGBT activist has been arrested. Prosecutors accuse Bean of paying $200k to a 15-year-old boy to make sex abuse charges go away. Bean co-founded America’s largest gay lobby group @HRC. https://t.co/F7YBFBXy6T pic.twitter.com/YMv9IYZR4f— Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo) November 2, 2019
