Seattle’s Democratic mayor has just been hit with his 4th teen-sex accusation.
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has officially been accused of paying for sex by a fourth person. To make matters worse, the fourth alleged victim was a teenage boy.
The “Seattle Times” reported the details of his accusations earlier in the week.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Maurice Jones, now a 44-year-old man, has sworn to a court that Murray sexually assaulted him decades ago. “He recalls at least two instances when, as a teenager, Murray paid (him) for sex. Once at Murray’s apartment and once in a car,” explained Julie Kays, an attorney involved in the case.
That claim echoes the recent accusations made by Delvonn Heckard, who claims that the openly gay Seattle mayor sexually assaulted him when Heckard was a minor. Two previous people have also made similar claims.
Murray’s counsel is trying to dismiss the accusations, claiming that they are fabricated
“As we’ve seen repeatedly from opposing counsel, this filing fits firmly into the category of sensational media stunt,” attorney Jeff Reading said.
“Mayor Murray does not know this person. This is an ambush, copycat, false accusation that is being made without any details, evidence, timeline or anything at all to substantiate its veracity,” Reading. claimed. “Mayor Murray has never had inappropriate relations with any minor, and Mayor Murray has never paid for sex.”
Murray’s counsel is claiming that all of the accusations are part of a smear campaign and that the majority of the individuals accusing Murray of sexual abuse have lengthy criminal records. In the case of Jones, he pleaded guilty to prostitution in 1988, when he was only 15.
