'Ed Murray' Seattle Mayor Resign After Sex Abuse Allegation

Seattle's Mayor Resigns After Fifth Allegation of Child Sexual Abuse

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray announced his resignation on Tuesday-mere hours after yet another sex abuse allegation was lodged against him, as reported by The Seattle Times.

"I just think it is so sad to see it end this way and also sad that we have out there, potentially, these victims who have come forward and whose pain also needs to be addressed". Despite calls for his resignation, Murray made a decision to stay on. "How many victims will it take for the Mayor to step down?" Durkan had not been among them until Dyer's accusations were publicized today.

Ed Murray has been the mayor of Seattle since 2014.

In a statement obtained by KONG, Harrell said he intends to make an announcement within five days, after he consults with his family and other members of the Seattle City Council.

Dyer is now the fifth man to publicly accuse Murray of sexually abusing him as a child since April.

After months of battling accusers who said he had molested them as children, the mayor of San Diego is resigning from his position. "I look forward to engaging in meaningful discussions with voters and my fellow candidates about the best ways to solve Seattle's crises so that we do not become a city of haves and have nots". While his caseworker believed him-as documents the Oregon Child Protective Service released to The Seattle Times showed-no charges were brought and the investigation was dropped because of Simpson's "emotional instability and history of manipulative behavior."




Murray, 62, claims the allegation stems from a split in the family, which began with a common-law marriage between his sister and Sottile's brother. And though the earlier allegations derailed his re-election bid, which he ended in May, he had committed to finishing his current term before Tuesday.

One of the most liberal mayors in the country, and a rising star for Democrats, is resigning his office effective immediately, the Seattle Times is reporting.

'It's clear that it is in everybody's best interest for him to resign.

Moon reiterated her stance Tuesday, saying the mayor's response to the allegations had been "deeply inappropriate and harmful, especially to survivors, LGBTQ people and young people everywhere".

Murray, 62, has worked for the Washington state legislature for almost 20 years, and a spokesman said that the Mayor would not field any questions from the press.
