'''Lawrence E. "Larry" King Jr.''' ran the Franklin Community Credit Union of Omaha,_Nebraska and was a prominent fundraiser for the GOP before pleading guilty to Embezzlement. He was alleged to have been involved in, or the leader of, a child-sex group in Nebraska in the 1990s.
A television documentary on this topic, ''Conspiracy_of_Silence'', was produced in 1994 but never aired, apparently due to concerns about liability for Defamation.
In February, 1999, a U.S._District_Court awarded a plaintiff, Paul_A._Bonacci, $800,000 in damages against King for various Tort claims, including physical, mental, and sexual abuse. The award followed a Default_judgment.
