Has he been in contact with the lawyer representing DH?

@51, I think he's talking about domestic partner legislation which was sent to the voters. Or marriage equality which was also sent to the voters. Or any number of other issues Murray picked up and won against the likes of Connelly.

Obama should have stepped down because of Birther assertions he is Kenyan. The fact he stoopped to showing us his birth certificate (be it late) proved nothing. I'm not saying he isn't born in the U.S., I'm just saying that argument was a distraction.

@8, you could also be consistent on withholding judgment until more facts are clear. It's totally possible to not like Trump or the Mayor and wait to see what unfolds. Totally possible to withhold judgement while not dismissing accusers, who have every right to be encouraged to take a stand.

@6, I believe the press conference was in response to the accusations made against him and a request from the prosecuting attorney to disprove the claims made about his junk. I highly doubt the mayor wants to talk about his junk in public.

With headlines like this one, seems like he's going to be guilty for not responding and guilty for responding. I think it's also important to realize, the mayor has not been convicted of anything. He's been accused. It might be worth considering that the emotions of Seattle citizens, especially those who've tragically experienced sexual abuse, might possibly be getting preyed on here.

He has every right to prove his innocence. This is a hard place to be in though. Dismissing accusers is obviously not ok and one never wants to piss off the media. But if an accuser has a long criminal history of lying, identity theft, serious drug abuse etc, it does not mean they aren not telling the truth but those are relevant facts. Particularly in light of the Faith & Freedom Network's involvement with the accuser and the accuser's claims.

This story is being perpetuated by outlets that describe one accuser as "a teddy bear of a man" while asserting the mayor should step down (but they're not rushing to judgement).

There are some sketchy details to this case and I'd hope The Stranger would do more investigative journalism rather than just post what the court of public opinion thinks. The city deserves at least that much. Simply telling the mayor to step down, especially if innocent, does the city no good in the long run.

Not exactly solid journalism here. The theme is consistent with The Stranger's inability to cope with this mayor winning the election over their pick. This makes them a little untrustworthy in a Foxish kind of way.

It actually does kind of look like a way more fit version of the pre-legislator Murray.

I think they all used a teleprompter. What do people have against teleprompters?

Maybe The Stranger should hire someone who does, or maybe you should take a vacation, Goldy.
