Seattle mayor resigns after 5th child molestation charge comes from cousin

Seattle mayor resigns after 5th child molestation charge comes from cousin

Murray has denied all allegations and said that this is part of a plot to bring him down due to his progressive views and stance on gay rights, and the latest allegation is from an estranged member of his family.

"I am announcing my resignation as mayor, effective at 5 p.m. tomorrow".

Murray also is an opponent of President Donald Trump. "I have had enough, '" he said, as quoted by the Seattle Times.

Dyers' signed declaration is part of Heckard's lawsuit against Murray.

Several public officials have been calling for Murray's resignation for several months.

"My sadness was about another victim coming forward, and sadness over leaders like Ed Murray who are unable to face the truth, remain in their positions", she said.

Lloyd Anderson, another man who met Murray in Portland as a boy, has backed Simpson's allegations, and said Murray also paid him for sex when Anderson was a teenager. But after the report of a fifth complainant on Tuesday, Ms. Durkan, who is openly lesbian, said the time had come.

Before being elected mayor in 2013, Murray, 62, was a long-time state lawmaker who led the campaign to legalize same-sex marriage in Washington state.

"There would be times when I would counterfeit dozing in light of the fact that I didn't need him touching me", Dyer told the daily paper.

The mayor stayed in his office Tuesday and didn't address his staff at large before his resignation announcement, according to a source.

Greg Nickels was Seattle's 51st mayor, between 2002 and 2010. Meanwhile when actual abuse of child occurs, they lie about it, they whitewash it and they help keep it going. He chose to do so, and I think that was the right decision. "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".

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

It was Murray's cousin, Joseph Dyer, whose accusations that the mayor sexually abused him while they were sharing a room in NY in the 1970s, that resulted in Murray's decision to resign.

"Survivors of sexual assault must be believed and treated with respect", Moon said in a statement.
