Following OC Weekly's Saturday night blog post coverage of protesters at the Orange County Democratic Party event featuring Barney Frank as keynote speaker someone left a death threat comment against the Massachusetts Democratic congressman.
The openly gay Frank, 70, appeared with his partner and without security guards at the local party's sold out annual Harry S Truman awards dinner in Buena Park.
R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club; been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists; and hailed by two New York Times Magazine writers for his “herculean job” exposing Southern California law enforcement corruption.
