Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) knows no boundaries.
Murray has been in the hot seat for supporting former Seattle mayor Ed Murray, who is no relation but is however an alleged five time child sex abuser.
“The mayor, in office since 2014, agreed to resign on Tuesday after months of bombshell findings, including that an Oregon Child Protective Services investigator found in 1984 that he sexually abused his foster son. Hours before his resignation, a cousin said he was repeatedly molested by Murray as a teenager when they shared a room in the 1970s. Murray was in his twenties when his cousin says he abused him.
“Sen. Murray, yet to comment on the mayor’s resignation, helped put him in office, contributing the maximum allowed $700 to his 2013 mayoral campaign through her leadership PAC, according to local campaign finance records.”
Both Murray’s contributed to each other’s campaigns which makes this equally disgusting. The mayor claims he is innocent, even after a history of abuse allegations.
“‘While the allegations against me are not true, it is important that my personal issues do not affect the ability of our city government to conduct the public’s business,’ the mayor explained on Tuesday.
“He had already halted his reelection campaign earlier this summer. Jenny Durkan, the Democrat running to succeed Murray in Seattle, removed his name from her campaign website on Tuesday.
“‘It’s clear that it is in everybody’s best interest for him to resign,’ Durkan said. ‘As a parent, former public official, and openly gay woman, these allegations are beyond sad and tragic; no official is above the law.'”
Maybe both the mayor and senator should lose their jobs.
