A 46-year-old plaintiff, identified as D.H., claims that he met Murray on a bus and Murray allegedly “propositioned” him for “private visits” at his apartment. D.H., who says he was 15 and addicted to drugs at the time, claims Murray allegedly requested he perform sexual acts in exchange for $10 to $20 dollars. According to the Seattle Times, the alleged victim is coming forward as part of a “healing process”:
“I have been dealing with this for over 30 years,” the man, now sober for a year, said in an interview with The Seattle Times. He said he was coming forward as part of a “healing process” after years of “the shame, the embarrassment, the guilt, the humiliation that I put myself through and that he put me through.”
A spokesman for Murray declared he will “vigorously fight these allegations in court.” Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that the Seattle mayor allegedly sexually abused others “as children”:
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, a nationally famous champion of gay rights and progressive causes, has been accused by three men of having sex with them as children…
The unnamed plaintiff and two other men gave interviews to the Seattle Times — all telling similar stories about a politico in his late 20s and 30s, who befriended street kids, paid them and had his way with them.
“I don’t necessarily think that he destroyed my life,” Jeff Simpson told the newspaper after describing years of molestation from age 13 on. “But I believe a lot of the problems I have stemmed from this.”
The lawsuit states that Murray met a homeless, addicted 15-year-old, ‘D.H.’, on a bus, which began with a friendly interaction. It quickly turned into the teen doing whatever Murray wanted him to do for $10 or $20. In the interview with The Seattle-Times, ‘D.H.’ said that he would be doing whatever sexual act Murray wanted him to do, and that he would tell him to stop but he wouldn’t stop.
The statute of limitations for charging Murray with rape of a child has run out, so a lawsuit was the only option. The lawsuit mentions explicit details of the sexual encounters between Murray and ‘D.H.’, and matches details given by another teen, who did not sue, with the last name of Anderson.
Anderson said that Murray would give him $30 and some marijuana.in exchange for oral sex.
Another teen who is now grown, who did sue, with the last name of Simpson, said that he lived with Murray off and on for several years. He also said that he reported the molestation to his group home manager once, after an argument in 1984, but nothing came of it. Police investigated a report of sodomy also in 1984, but the investigation was dropped for unknown reasons.
