Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has been beset by multiple claims of raping children and finally, after the fifth man has come forward, the mayor has resigned. But, while CNN is fully ready to report the story, the cable network can’t seem to remember that Murray is a Democrat.
Murray announced he is resigning after a fifth man came forward to say that the mayor raped him when he was younger. Shockingly, the fifth accuser was the mayor’s own cousin.
But, while many other news outlets did properly note that the homosexual mayor is a Democrat, CNN seemed unable to mention the man’s party, Daily Wire revealed.
“Nowhere in CNN’s initial report did writer Emanuella Grinberg mention the fact that Murray is a Democrat nor were the terms “Democrat,” “Democratic,” or (D), even used,” Daily Wire wrote.
CNN was the only major left-wing news outlet that failed to identify Murray’s political affiliation – NBC News, ABC News, CBS News, MSNBC, New York Times, and Washington Post all identified Murray as Democrat.
Daily Wire also noted that left-wing sites such as Vox and Slate hadn’t even bothered to report the story at all.
Despite the growing list of accusations of rape and sexual abuse, Murray has insisted he is innocent.
“While the allegations against me are not true, it is important that my personal issues do not affect the ability of our City government to conduct the public’s business,” Murray said.
Since last year, Murray has seen a sit of accusations that he molested young men in the 1980s. He initially denied the claims, but as the accusations grew Murray dumped his re-election campaign. But he also said he would never step down.
Mayor Murray is an extreme left-winger, too, so his resignation will be no loss at all.
As Breitbart News reported this year:
Until the onslaught of accusations of sexual molestation, Murray was a poster boy for far-left policies. He has been a staunch defender of the city’s sanctuary city status and has a long history of fighting for progressive causes. When he was in the state legislature, for instance, he led the fight for the state to recognize gay marriage. And once elected Seattle’s mayor, Murray launched a campaign to push the city’s minimum wage to $15 an hour. Murray has also been a leading opponent of President Donald Trump, favoring efforts to torpedo the president’s immigration policies.
Yep, his resignation won’t be any loss at all!
