If you are a member of the party of the leftist amoral Democrats then you too can have a scandal and nobody will hold you accountable. That is the way it is working in Seattle. In that city, Mayor Ed Murray has had mutiple accusations of sexual perversity leveled at him. At first he declined to resigne. Now the number of charges have grown and he is stepping down. Has the Democrat Party members condemned him? Crickets. Why is that?
As Written By Allen B. West:
The left is always looking for their next gimmick candidate for the national stage. What do I mean by that? Well, they are always seeking to have the “first this or that.”
Barack Obama was the first black President — technically speaking he was half-white, but we will let that slide. Hillary Clinton was supposed to have been the first woman President. What happened? Easy answer: she sucked as a candidate, and was totally corrupt — reflecting that which we all despise about Washington DC.
Now, you hear the left potentially going back to that well with Senators Elizabeth Warren or Kamala Harris. Good luck with that: both are wacky progressive socialist leftists — but, they could pull it off. Doggone, they are even talking about recycling an Obama: this time around it’s Michelle.
Then there is the possibility of the first Hispanic President, Julian Castro, or even his brother, who is a US Representative.
Then, there’s another gimmick angle: the first gay President.
Former Mayor of Houston, Annalise Parker was in the running, but, then she lost her mind subpoenaing pastors to turn over their sermons. But, there was another hope along this front, and he came from that oh-so very popular, far left, liberal, progressive city of absurd policies: Seattle.
His name is Ed Murray. But — oops — that train just got derailed, as reported by the Washington Examiner:
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, a Democrat, announced Tuesday he is resigning after allegations arose that he sexually assaulted his younger cousin in the 1970s.
This would be the fifth instance where a man has publicly accused Murray, who is openly gay, of sexual abuse.
“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,” Murray said in a statement.
Murray’s cousin, Joseph Dyer, claims Murray forced him to have sex when they shared a room together at Dyer’s mother’s home in Medford, N.Y, according to the Seattle Times. Dyer said he was 13 when this occurred.
Murray said the claims were not true. He said the families were estranged and likely harbored negative feelings. The scandal had already prompted Murray to opt not to seek re-election, but until Tuesday he had declined to resign.
Murray has been head of a city that has come up with a few policies that are doozies, for sure. For example, the gun violence tax that we shared with you, that imposes a tax on any gun or ammunition purchases in the Seattle city limits. It basically shut down gun stores, save a few in the city. Or the recent “wealthy tax” — yes, a targeted tax on the so called “rich.”
Murray has served in the Washington State House, Senate, and is openly gay. Doggone, he had all the tickets punched to be a future national spotlight leader for the liberal progressive left!
But, something tells me that having a complaint filed with Oregon Child Protective Services for same-sex child molestation — complaints coming from individuals under his watch while a social worker, from his own foster son, and now his younger cousin — ain’t nothing to whistle Dixie about. (For you leftists, that is a Southern saying…it doesn’t mean I am a black white supremacist).
The only good thing for Murray is that all of these allegations are beyond the statute of limitations, so nothing will be criminally done to him. But, without a doubt, his reputation is tarnished, or maybe not. After all, “it’s the economy stupid,” so if Gorgeous Bill Clinton could get away with his known philandering — including lascivious acts in the White House Oval Office — perhaps Murray can disappear for a few years and make a comeback? Nah, I want to believe that even the characterless liberal progressive left does have some semblance of ……..
