Seattle Mayor Resigns Amid Sex Abuse Allegations; Media Plays Dumb

Written by  Brian Thomas

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray announced on Tuesday that he will be resigning, after a fifth man has come forward, saying that Murray sexually abused him.

Many news sources seem altogether reluctant to report on Murray’s allegations.

MSNBC included the story as a “mini report” on their website, saying only ““Seattle Mayor Ed Murray (D), embattled by child sex abuse allegations, will resign his post Wednesday. Murray’s spokesman, William Lemke, told The Washington Post that the resignation takes effect at 5 p.m.”

MSNBC was more than happy to run the full length article, Seattle elects its first openly gay mayor in 2013.

Other sources have a questionable manner of reporting on sexual assault.

CNN‘s Emanuella Grinberg reports:

Murray denied the allegations, as he has in the past. Previously, he called them part of a political effort to stymy his progressive agenda and support for LGBTQ and immigrant rights.

“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,” he said in a statement.
