A prominent gay activist, frequent White House visitor, and the co-founder of the radical Human Rights Campaign, was arrested in his Oregon home last week after being charged with sexually molesting a 15 year-old boy.
The Washington Times is reporting on the story of Terrence P. Bean, 66, a big Obama supporter who raised more than a half million dollars for the president’s 2012 re-election campaign and who was arrested along with Kiah Lawson, the 25 year-old boyfriend he met on a gay dating site. Authorities in Oregon have charged both men with two counts of third-degree sodomy and one charge of third-degree sex abuse of a 15 year-old boy.
Bean, who visited the White House six times since June, 2012, is rumored to be the person who persuaded the president to change his view on same-sex marriage.
Although the White House will not disclose the purpose of Bean’s most recent visit to the White House, it occurred on May 30, the same day that the president held a meeting of his “My Brother’s Keeper” task force which is an initiative aimed at finding mentors for minority boys.
This isn’t the first time Bean’s indiscretions have made headlines. Last June, Willamette Week reported on how Bean was paying the much younger Lawson a weekly allowance and had brought him to high-profile events such as to the White House where he also met the president. But the relationship took a turn when Lawson learned that Bean had a hidden camera in the smoke alarm above his bed which he used to make sex tapes of his various trysts with Lawson and others.
Lawson, who has a drug problem and a criminal record, allegedly asked Bean for money after learning about the sex tapes. Bean attempted to settle with him for $40,000 in exchange for Lawson turning over the tapes he had taken and for refraining from disclosing Bean’s private indiscretions. However, this deal apparently went south and Bean’s attorney, Kristen Winemiller, told the local District Attorney that Lawson was guilty of extortion and was involved in other criminal activities. The case is under investigation by Portland police.
Although Bean has taken a leave of absence from his post at the Human Rights Campaign, the organization is currently in league with the ACLU and the Gill Action Fund to push through a Michigan law that could one day be used to protect and promote pedophilia. Known as The Sexual Orientation Expansion to Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Act, the bill is intended to elevate sexual orientation to a protected class. This could open the door for the future protection of pedophilia if efforts – which are already underway – are successful in having this condition reclassified.
In the meantime, Bean’s lawyer is insisting that her client is the target of an extortion ring and that “no allegations against Terry Bean should be taken at face value. We look forward to the opportunity to clear his name.”
As usual, the mainstream media – which is devoted to protecting the president much more than the people it’s supposed to serve – is barely covering the huge scandal surrounding Bean and his nefarious homosexual trysts and intrigues.
According to Catholic League president Bill Donohue, “The AP ran one story totaling 133 words, CNN ran a couple of clips, and Fox News gave it a brief mention” with some of these stories failing to mention Bean’s role as co-founded of the radical HRC.
The public may seem to be growing more accepting of homosexuality, but this is only because the press routinely presents them in a favorable light and hides anything that reflects badly upon their lifestyle including the many dire physical and emotional ills that trouble this population. No wonder the people support this warm and fuzzy fantasy!
But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that when one builds their support upon a foundation of false narratives and a mountain of carefully hidden dirty secrets, that support is on borrowed time. Sooner or later, one strong wind will blow it all away.
