The Mayor of Seattle Ed Murray has said that he won’t seek re-election after claims of his sexual relationships with juvenile boys. Murray denied such claims but they spoiled his reputation so he understands that there is no chance for him to be re-elected as the Mayor, his term is finishing at the end of the year. “The allegations against me paint me in the worst possible historic portraits of a gay man. The allegations against me are not true, and I say this with all honesty and with the deepest sincerity. But the scandal surrounding them, and me, is hurting this city,” the married gay mayor added. Bob Sulkin, Murray’s attorney, has stated that the allegations are “false” and insisted that “these types of lawsuits is now the cost of being a public figure.” “I don’t think it’s a coincidence that these allegations have occurred in the midst of a mayoral campaign,” Sulkin added.
