Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Resigns After Child Sex-Abuse Allegations

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray announced he will resign Tuesday after several accusations of sexual abuse after a fifth accuser – who is reportedly Murray’s younger cousin – claimed he sexually assaulted her decades ago.

Murray’s cousin is the fifth individual to officially accuse the mayor of child abuse since the first lawsuit filed against him back in April.

Murray, Seattle’s first openly gay mayor, announced his resignation would take effect at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Joseph Dyer, Murray’s first cousin once removed, told The Seattle Times he was sexually molested by Murray in New York when he was a teenager.

Dyer told the Seattle Times he wants Murray punished for the allegations, adding, “I have had enough …something has got to be done.”

Dyer said the events occurred when he was 13-years-old, adding that he would “fake sleeping because I didn’t want him touching me.”

Four other men previously accused Murray of sexually molesting them. Murray has denied the allegations, adding that he believes the accusations are a political effort against him in part because of his progressive agenda and support for LGBTQ community.

Several prominent names like Donald Trump Jr., President Donald Trump’s eldest son,have questioned why it took so long for Murray to resign.

“It took 5? Also: Ed Murray (Democrat) for your information,” Trump said.

“While the allegations against me are not true, it is important that my personal issues do not affect the ability of our city government to conduct the public’s business,” Murray said in a statement.

“To the people of this special city and to my dedicated staff, I am sorry for this painful situation,” he said.

In the interim, Council President Bruce Harrell will assume the mayor’s office following Murray’s resignation.

Murray was elected as mayor in 2014 after spending 18 years as a state lawmaker.

He announced in May he would not seek reelection after a lawsuit accused him of repeatedly raping a man roughly 30 years ago.
