Seattle Mayor Ed Murray resigns after fifth child sex-abuse allegation



It took five allegations before he finally resigned, his cousin was the fifth to accuse him of sexual abuse.

For five months Seattle Mayor Ed Murray rejected calls for his resignation

Re: Seattle Mayor Ed Murray resigns after fifth child sex-abuse allegation

I don't have to read the article to know that Murray is a Dem; mspmms would never post the story otherwise, and we don't have the usual suspects in here defending the guy.

Dem does something horrible.
Left-leaning posters: "I hope they throw the book at the guy."

Republican does something horrible.
Cons: "He didn't do it, innocent until proven guilty, it's really not a big deal anyway!"

Right, it's a big local story but I was wondering why it deserved a thread here. Then I saw who posted it.

What I said when I saw who posted it: "I bet he's a democrat".

It feels like most of mspmms's posts has the goal of trying to make democrats look as bad as republicans, while at the same time trying to defend republicans actions.

I'm Canadian and have no dog in this fight - so I'm looking at this forum pretty objectively.

Was it a federal crime? Maybe it can fall under Jerry Brown?

Oh stop it. It depends on projected 2020 election results! Can he win the pedophile vote without losing the Christian conservative, white supremacist, and mainstream Republican vote? And will the pedophile vote give him another four years in office? These are the questions being asked!

That's a fair point. Obvious why I'm not in charge of Presidential races - I would have suggest opposing such groups.

One of reasons is that I wanted to use this joke:

He was part of the "Fight for Fifteen".

I always thought it was dollars - not years

I also recall some posters here who repeatedly and obsessively tried to slam particular regions based upon their own personal biases and psychological needs to attack specific forum members.

Funny that when something happens in their neck of the woods, geography isn't a concern.

Oh, well. Expecting consistency in an internet forum is a fool's errand.

According to this link, Seattle is the 21st most populous city in the country...far ahead of places such as Atlanta and Miami.

Most people would say that qualifies as newsworthy, especially when some representative from Palookaville who gets caught in a scandal will get his/her own thread.

I'd be a fool to pass up the opportunity ... isn't the pedophile vote entirely made up of christian conservative, white supremacist, and mainstream republican voters?

I'm kidding damnit, just trying to lighten the mood around here.

Well, the possibility that the mayor of Seattle would be a Republican is about the same as the pope being a Buddhist.

On the other hand, there was an outstanding chance of his being a pedophile!

(Sorry...just following Kurtie's "too good an opportunity" example...right down to the spoiler).

Re: Seattle Mayor Ed Murray resigns after fifth child sex-abuse allegation

Why didn't this mayor's crimes come to light during his campaign? Why did it require him to ascend to mayor before his victims took action?
