Seattle mayor is charged of raping a male teen


The gay city head denies accusations of sexual assault of the 15-year-old boy, he is believed to have committed many years ago. The plaintiff said he was a school drop-out and homeless at 15 in 1986, and it made him use drugs and sell his body, in part to the now-mayor Ed Murray. And sex with people under 16 is legally considered a rape. Details in the filing papers include descriptions of birthmarks, the layout of Murray’s old apartment and offers a description of Murray’s genitals. It claims there is a ‘unique mole on his scrotum’. It was only after the plaintiff’s father died that he decided to come forward. ‘These moments of reflection, and awareness that Mr. Murray maintains a position of authority, prompted the filing of this lawsuit in an attempt at accountability,’ the plaintiff’s lawyer wrote in the suit, ‘and to hopefully give courage for other potential victims to come forward and speak out.’

‘Unfortunately, defending these types of lawsuits is now the cost of being a public figure…’ the Mayor’s attorney said, ‘The allegations are false. He has not engaged in any inappropriate conduct with a minor, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that these allegations have occurred in the midst of a mayoral campaign… At the end of the day, we’re going to defend this lawsuit vigorously, the mayor is going to do his job for the city of Seattle, and this accuser is going to have to explain himself.’
