    A shocking tale of pedophilia is emerging in Seattle,
    Washington. Mayor Ed Murray, 61, is accused of raping teenage
    boys since the 1980s. A lawsuit was filed this week against
    Murray where a victim stated that the mayor first sexually
    assaulted him when he was just 15 and a high school dropout. The
    man, now 46, claimed that the mayor paid him $10 to $20 for each
    encounter that went on several times as he struggled with a
    crack addiction.

    The victim only identified by the initials D.H. in court filings
    stated to the Seattle Times, “I have been dealing with this for
    over 30 years,” and came forward recently as part of his healing
    process. But the allegations are not new against Mayor Murray.
    Two other men have also come forward with the same allegations
    and one even went to the police when he was a teen. The men,
    identified as Jeff Simpson and Lloyd Anderson, accused Murray of
    abusing them in the 1980s and paying them for sex and said
    they’d be willing to testify about it. Simpson, 49, said Murray
    — who he thought of as a father — raped him over several years,
    starting at age 13, and in later years, paid him.

    ‘I would really like for him to admit it and to take
    responsibility,” Simpson told media recently. In 1984, one of
    the victims talked to a social worker and to a detective about
    the abuse. At that time, charges of a felony third-degree sodomy
    charge developed but the prosecutors declined to bring the case
    forward. Because the assault occurred so long ago, all records
    from that era have more than likely been destroyed. Murray is
    running for re-election and his camp claims that the lawsuit is
    politically motivated.

    Murray’s personal spokesman Jeff Reading stated, “These false
    accusations are intended to damage a prominent elected official
    who has been a defender of vulnerable populations for decades.
    It is not a coincidence that this shakedown effort comes within
    weeks of the campaign filing deadline. These unsubstantiated
    assertions, dating back three decades, are categorically false.”

    Reading went on to say in a statement “The two older accusations
    were promoted by extreme right-wing anti-gay activists in the
    midst of the marriage equality campaign and were thoroughly
    investigated and dismissed by both law enforcement authorities
    and the media.”

    The age of legal consent in Washington is 16; having sex with
    anyone younger is considered rape of a child under state law.
    The statute of limitations on any crime would have expired.
