The progressive liberal bastion of Seattle has finally decided how many accusations of child sex abuse and rape it takes to get a Democrat to resign in this city.
FIVE. And if you look carefully, there’s a sixth allegation wrapped into the fifth.
The allegations of child rape and abuse against soon-to-be-resigning Seattle Mayor Ed Murray have stretched back for decades. Actual accusers appeared in 2008 and their story was deemed “not credible” by the local press – who later had to explain their decision. This last April, a civil lawsuit was filed by a third victim. Murray, a well-known progressive gay Democrat, denied all the allegations. His legal team took great care to point out that all three accusers led troubled pasts, filled with criminal records and drug problems.
