Now that a fifth allegation of sexual abuse has been leveled against the gay "married" mayor of Seattle, Ed Murray, the beleagured Democrat and prominent LGBT leader announced his resignation, effective today. Murray announced earlier this year, as sexual abuse claims mounted, that he would not seek reelection but would serve out his term.
Murray, 62, has denied all allegations of sexual abuse of boys but yesterday his own cousin, Joseph Dyer, came forward and claimed that Murray allegedly had repeatedly molested him in the 1970s, as the Seattle Times reported.
In the 1970s, Murray shared a bedroom with Dyer in the home of Dyer's mother in Medford, New York. "There would be times when I would fake sleeping because I didn't want him touching me," Dyer, who was 13 at the time of the alleged abuse, told the Seattle Times. Joseph Dyer is now 54, married, has children, and is an Air Force veteran.
