Seattle Mayor Ed Murray resigns after fifth child sex-abuse allegation

Posted on Wednesday, 13th September 2017 @ 12:33 AM by Text Size A | A | A

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has announced plans to resign following multiple accusations of sexual abuse after a fifth accuser — who is the mayor’s younger cousin — came forward and alleged that Murray repeatedly molested him in the 1970s.

Murray, 62, announced Tuesday that he will step down effective 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The mayor had already said that he wouldn’t seek a second term.

Accuser Joseph Dyer, who is a dialysis technician and Air Force veteran, says the molestation occurred in New York when he was a teen, according to The Seattle Times.

The 54-year-old Dyer — Murray’s first cousin once removed — told the newspaper that he wants the mayor punished for the alleged actions, saying, “I have had enough. … Something has got to be done.”

Murray has denied the accusation, attributing it to a longstanding family schism.
