Seattle Mayor Resigns after Another Victim Speaks Out
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray resigned after his cousin stepped forward as the fifth man to accuse Murray publicly of sexually abusing him as a minor.
After the accusations of sexual abuse earlier this year, Murray denied wrongdoing but announced he would not seek reelection.
City Councilman Bruce Harrell will become mayor and has five days to decide whether to fill out the remainder of Murray’s term.
