September 13, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Seattle’s homosexual mayor Ed Murray is stepping down after a fifth man, Joseph Dyer, accused his older cousin Murray of having sexually molested him when Dyer was a boy.

Murray’s resignation takes effect today (Wednesday) at 5 p.m., The Seattle Times reported.

Murray had already been accused by four men of molesting them when they were boys, as LifeSiteNews reported. That list includes his former foster son, Jeff Simpson.

In May, Murray, a former state legislator, dropped his bid for re-election as the homosexual sex-predator scandal deepened.

Then, in July, a 1984 document from Oregon Child Protective Services (CPS) mysteriously resurfaced that backed up Simpson’s current claims against Murray. The document shows that Simpson was a young teenager when the alleged sexual abuse began. Murray was Simpson’s last foster placement, and by the latter’s account he manipulated the runaway boy into performing oral and anal sodomies.

“In the professional judgment of this casework … Jeff Simpson has been sexually abused by … Edward Murray,” the document stated.

“Something had to be done”

The Seattle Times reports that Dyer, 54, said he was 13 when “Murray forced him into sex for about a year while the two shared a bedroom in Dyer’s mother’s home in the Long Island town of Medford, New York.” Dyer, a veteran, is now married.

Murray is denying all of the sex-abuse allegations, and characterized Dyer’s claims as the outworking of a family feud.

But Dyer said he’d “had enough” and “something had to be done.”

“I have come forward after these years to stand in support of Delvonn Heckard, the other accusers, and all sex abuse victims,” Dyer said in a statement in support of Heckard, whose sexual abuse claims against Murray “first brought long-whispered allegations against the mayor to the fore” reported the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

“I am offering this declaration to rebut Murray’s claims that he never molested a child and/or the allegations against him were concocted as some sort of right-wing conspiracy,” Dyer said. “I do not know any of the other victims mentioned in this statement, and I am not part of any conspiracy.”

‘I didn’t want him touching me’

In an interview with The Times, Dyer recalled:

“There would be times when I would fake sleeping because I didn’t want him touching me. And that’s when he would molest me. And my mother would be right there in the house, she’d be in the living room … watching TV, at that time it was probably “M*A*S*H.” And my sisters would be in their rooms, sleeping. And I would be in my room, and he would be in there, molesting me.”

Former homosexual Joseph Sciambra noted that it is common for “gay” men to have been sexually used as a minor. “Typically almost everyone had a first lover that was older, experienced, and reassuring,” Sciambra wrote.

Though “gay” activists vehemently deny any serious or causal connection between pedophilia and homosexuality, examples of sex between adult homosexual men and underage boys are easy to find. Many homosexual men testify to having been involved sexually with adults when they were still teenagers.

Even “gay” icon Harvey Milk, honored by President Obama as a “civil rights” hero, reportedly had a sexual relationship (“marriage”) with a 16- (or 17-) year-old runaway boy while Milk was in his early 30s. (And Milk himself was the victim of homosexual molestation as a young boy, according to his homosexual biographer, the late Randy Shilts.)

The Seattle Times reported that “Murray, 62, a former Democratic state legislator, has repeatedly denied that he sexually abused anyone, contending the accusations are part of a political takedown targeting him for his progressive politics and record as a gay-rights champion.”

One conservative, “Sally Yates' Neck,” sarcastically tweeted today in response to Murray's resignation: “Let's elect a homosexual. What could possibly go wrong?”
