Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is stepping down following allegations that he sexually abused young boys, some of whom he paid. Murray’s former foster son alleges Murray began sexually abusing him when he was 13.
The main point of the story is how very, very sad it is that the first openly gay mayor of Seattle won’t be able to run for re-election.
The NYT didn’t get around to mentioning the creepy pederasty allegations until paragraph six, though I noticed they did jump right on the “he grew up Irish Catholic” in paragraph eight.
And though the story discusses Murray’s political aspirations and political career at length, they never once name his political party affiliation. One guess what party he belongs to.
