Currently, he is facing some major backlash after five men, including his adoptive son and one of his cousins, are accusing him of sexual abuse.
Another accuser, Lloyd Anderson, issued a statement Tuesday through his lawyer: "I feel victory, but saddened that it required another victim to come forward for him to resign". During Murray's tenure as mayor, Seattle sued Trump over his executive order cracking down on sanctuary cities that limit their cooperation with federal immigration agents. "Unfortunately, we know that there is another victim because I know that there are several more victims that haven't come forward".
Her rival in the mayor's race, Cary Moon, called for Murray to step down months ago.
Dyer purportedly said the occurrences happened when he was 13, while Murray, who was then in his mid 20s, imparted a room to Dyer in his mom's Long Island home. At the time he said he would stay on as mayor until his term expired at year's end.
Murray, who was first elected in 2013, suspended his re-election campaign in May when the allegations first came to light.
"There would be times when I would fake sleeping because I didn't want him touching me", Dyer, told the Times. While his caseworker believed him-as documents the Oregon Child Protective Service released to The Seattle Times showed-no charges were brought and the investigation was dropped because of Simpson's "emotional instability and history of manipulative behavior."
The accuser is now number five in total and each has a similar story of abuse.
Murray's younger cousin, Joseph Dyer, 54, told The Seattle Times that he was 13 when Murray repeatedly molested him for a year while they lived together in Dyer's mother's home.
"As a parent, former public official and openly gay woman, these allegations are beyond sad and tragic; no official is above the law", Durkan said.
The mayor dismissed the claims, saying that there has been a rift in the family for years.
"There are adults who are willing to stand up to even some of the most powerful people in office in our state to say enough is enough", she said.
Heckard filed suit against the mayor earlier this year accusing him of molesting him when Heckard was a teenager in the 1980s.
