A former model and actor, he made a significant amount of money running and selling the data service company Gopher Courier. He became involved in politics after the election of Evan Mecham as Governor of Arizona in 1986; Buck, an Arizona native, led the effort to recall him from office due to Mecham's perceived racism and corruption, which ended in Mecham's impeachment by the Arizona Senate in 1988 on the basis of various charges, including misusing government funds, before a recall election could occur. The experience led Buck to change his party affiliation from Republican to Democrat, and he has since donated heavily to Democratic politicians. In 2007, he ran an unsuccessful campaign for the city council of West Hollywood, California.

Peter Maloney is a Canadian lawyer, businessman, activist and former politician, most noted as one of the first Canadian political figures ever to come out as gay[1][2] and as a prominent builder of Toronto's LGBT community in the 1970s and 1980s. Political career in early 1970s Maloney ran as an Ontario Liberal Party candidate in the riding of St. George in the 1971 Ontario provincial election, against incumbent MPP Allan Lawrence.[3] At the time, he was working as an economist at the Toronto Stock Exchange.[4] Although initially seen as a longshot due to the Liberal Party's weakness in the Toronto area at the time, as the campaign progressed he appeared to have built a stronger than expected chance of winning; however, he was defeated on election day.[5] Despite having run a modest, careful campaign, he was subsequently forced to file for bankruptcy, focusing significant attention on the Canadian political system and the challenges an electoral campaign can pose for a candidate who is not already independ
