Former Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and others are calling for Seattle Mayor Ed Murray to resign after reports revealed that an Oregon child-welfare investigator concluded in 1984 Murray sexually abused teenagers.
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray so far is holding onto office despite disturbing claims he sexually abused four teenagers, including his foster son, in the 1980s – though calls are growing for him to resign ahead of November’s election.
Former Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and current mayoral candidate Jessyn Farrell have joined those demanding Murray step down following a blistering report in The Seattle Times. The article revealed an Oregon child-welfare investigator concluded in 1984 that Murray sexually abused his foster son Jeff Simpson when he was a teenager.
“The time for denials and victim blaming is over,” McGinn, a Democrat, tweeted Sunday.
