The Trump administration has been receiving a lot of pushback from “sanctuary cities” because, by definition, sanctuary cities limit their cooperation with the federal government in order to protect illegal immigrants from deportation.
President Trump has threatened to pull federal funding to combat the lack of cooperation, which includes approximately 300 different cities, counties and states.
One of those includes Seattle, Washington whose Mayor is currently being accused of atrocious and despicable acts.
“A lawsuit alleges Seattle mayor Ed Murray, who has defended the city’s policy of refusing to turn over illegal alien criminals to federal authorities, raped drug-addicted, teenaged boys.
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.’”
Of course Murray is denying the allegations, and a spokesman for the Seattle Mayor declared he will, “vigorously fight these allegations in court.”
The lawsuit was filed because criminal charges are now off the table because it’s been so long that the statute of limitations no longer applies.
The Washington Post reported on the specific details of the lawsuit:
“It describes the apartment’s floor plan. It also describes intimate physical descriptions of Murray that match the account of another accuser who did not sue: Lloyd Anderson.
Anderson told the Times that he met the future mayor as a teen in the early 1980s — when he and Simpson were both living in a group home in Portland.
Murray invited Anderson home and gave him $30 and some marijuana in return for oral sex, he told the newspaper.
Simpson told the Times he lived off-and-on with Murray for years, having sex regularly, and reported the molestation to his group home manager after an argument in 1984 — though nothing came of it.
Authorities pursued a sodomy investigation against Murray that same year, according to the Associated Press, but dropped it.
Anderson and Simpson took their accusations to the media and Washington lawmakers in 2008, the Times reported — when Murray was a state senator known for championing same-sex marriage and other gay rights causes.”
And even though Anderson and Simpson took their accusation to the media and Washington lawmakers in 2008, publications like The Seattle Times didn’t report on it because the liberal media was protecting Murray while he worked to discredit their character.
The Washington Post concluded:
“’Murray denied the accusations to reporters and hired an attorney, who worked to discredit the men largely based on their criminal pasts,” the paper reported.
‘Neither the Seattle Times nor other media publicly reported the allegations, and Murray’s political career continued to rise.’
He won the Seattle mayor’s office in 2012, wooing liberal voters with a promise to raise the minimum wage.
This year, Murray became a leading voice in the West Coast resistance to Trump’s agenda — particularly the president’s promise to target undocumented immigrants.”
His persona as the face of resistance against Donald Trump apparently nullifies these abhorrent allegations that were swept under the rug for nearly 8 years.
And that’s disturbing.
