Seattle's mayor resigns after 5th sex abuse claim emerges

https://www.yahoo.com/news/relative-ex-seattle-mayor-5th-accuse-him-abuse-192330721.html

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Mayor Ed Murray announced his resignation Tuesday after a fifth man — one of his cousins — came forward and accused him of sexual abuse decades ago.

Murray, who had already announced that he would not seek a second term even as he denied the claims, said he would step down effective 5 p.m. Wednesday

The Democrat said in a statement had "become clear to me that in light of the latest news reports it is best for the city if I step aside."

Murray made the announcement after the Seattle Times reported on the allegations by the mayor's first cousin once removed, Joseph Dyer.

10. Another criminal Mayor Agains Illegal Guns, joins the roster

Bloomberg's big push for Mayors to support his gun grabbing agenda is suffering from a host of convictions over the past few years.

This isn't even the first pedophile he's lost either. Maybe they have a special "Mayors only" NAMBLA chapter?

Coaldale, Pa. Mayor faces child pornography charges
Brownsville, TX Mayor has third DWI arrest
Sheila Dixon, Baltimore Mayor resigns after pleading guilty to stealing from the poor
Detroit Mayor Kilpatrick sentenced to four months

The list goes on and on, with over 40 of the mayors convicted and serving time from both large and small cities
