Terry Bean, the co-founder of the Human Rights Campaign, has been indicted on child rape charges in Oregon, Gotnews.com has learned.
Bean, 66, is a prominent Democratic fundraiser who has helped elect Democratic congressmen, senators, and even presidents. And now he’s accused of raping a 15-year-old boy.
The indictment charges Bean with two counts of third-degree sodomy, a felony, and one count of third-degree sex abuse, according to OregonLive.com.
Bean came out strong for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, according to PQ Monthly.
“Another standout moment was the election of Barack Obama — because I knew from the beginning what an important advocate he would be for our community. Maybe it’s because I knew him personally from the start of his campaign, but nothing he’s done on behalf of our community has surprised me, and it’s sometimes been frustrating to hear naysayers among us criticize him for not doing everything right away.”
