Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Resigns Amid Multiple Child Sex-Abuse Allegations

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Resigns Amid Multiple Child Sex-Abuse Allegations

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray resigned on Tuesday only hours after a fifth allegation surfaced that he sexually abused a younger cousin decades ago in NY.

This time, it was a cousin that accused him of abuse, telling the Times that when the two shared a bedroom at a home in NY in the mid-1970s, Murray forced the then-13-year-old into sex.

Dyer told the newspaper he was 13 and that Murray was in his early 20s when Murray came to live with Dyer's family in Medford, New York, in 1975.

All five accusers say that they were teenagers when the alleged abuse occurred.

Finally, ValuEngine upgraded Delta Air Lines from a "buy" rating to a "strong-buy" rating in a report on Wednesday, August 2nd. The highest price DAL stock touched in the last 12 month was $55.75 and the lowest price it hit in the same period was $36.59.


Murray denied abusing Dyer and blamed the allegation on resentment between their families.

In his resignation statement today, Ed Murray 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". The Seattle Times broke the story shortly after 11 a.m. when Murray was expected to announce a plan for KeyArena.

One of the men filed a lawsuit against the mayor in April, alleging that Murray "repeatedly criminally raped and molested" him when he was a homeless 15-year-old in the 1980s.

"There would be times when I would fake sleeping because I didn't want him touching me", Dyer said. As a senator in Washington state's legislature, he championed legalizing same-sex marriage.

As a young man, he considered joining the priesthood and spent a year at a seminary in 1976 before studying sociology at the University of Portland, a private Catholic institution.

Anderson, Murray's mentor, died in 1995. Heckard's attorneys made a decision to withdraw the suit, saying they will re-file the case after the mayor is out the office to prevent him from using his position of power to further his side.

Murray kept his promise about the minimum wage increase. It also calls on Seattle's elected officials to "do what is right and remove Murray from office".
