OH DANG! Seattle’s Liberal Trump-Hating Mayor Just Got BAD NEWS!

Ed Murray was the man who took on the long campaign to legalize same-sex marriage in Washington state. He labored for just about two decades as a state lawmaker and achieved his biggest personal political triumph in 2013 when he unseated Seattle’s incumbent mayor by promising the extremist-liberal city that he would give them a minimum hourly wage to $15.

How’s that turned out for the city?

Anyways, that’s not the point of this article…the point is that when he took on the role of a high-profile critic of President Donald Trump and braced to launch a re-election campaign this last Thursday, he was hit with an alleged blast from the past — charges from three men that Murray sexually abused them back in the 80’s…

Of course on Friday, Murray held a short news conference to deny all the accusations in a lawsuit by one man, saying “they were very painful for me. It was painful for my husband.” Through a spokesman, he also denied any involvement with the other accusers.

He claimed that he will not be stepping down from his role as Mayor and is continuing on with his re-election campaign plans, yet declined to answer reporters’ questions, saying the case “is now a legal matter that is in the courts.”

Murray’s spokesman, Jeff Reading, previously recommended that the unnamed Murray enemies were strictly behind the false claims:

“It is not a coincidence that this shakedown effort comes within weeks of the campaign filing deadline.”

There were many phone calls to city council members earlier on Friday to ask about the mayor and what outcome the accusations could mean for his political future. All of them were ignored by staff.

Murray, 61, had only a few comments for the media:

“Things have never come easily to me in life, but I have never backed down and I will not back down now.”

I guess we’ll just have to see if these claims prove to be true or not.
