That could be called a move towards genocide. [...] 1939 called...

Thanks for admitting defeat, via the well-known corollary to Godwin's Law. That saves me any further trouble here. (Also, thanks for admitting how much being nailed as a fake liberal bothers you. Homosexuals like Murray were one group targeted in that actual genocide, you ignorant and insensitive fool.)

Since you are still unclear on this point, I'll do you the favor of informing you: the issue was never Murray's homeless policy, tax policy, rainbow-crosswalk policy, or anything else of actual substance. The issue was whether we here in Seattle allow smears, promulgated by persons who are not citizens of Seattle, to dictate our political choices. You're all for it and I'm completely against it, and the smear merchants won this round, with your enthusiastic help. Please let us know when your self-righteous indignation subsides to the point where you can see how smear politics is never a valid way to choose leaders or make policy.

Oh, and won't you please think of the kids, and stop sodomizing the goats before you sacrifice them? :-)

Tensor, there are no "facts" in Murray's case. That's up to a jury or a judge to determine, not you.

You're confused. Simpson is not a party to the lawsuit against Murray. Unless he joins the suit, or is called to testify, the claims he made to The Stranger will not be evaluated by a jury.

The facts to which Mtn. Beaver and I referred were in The Stranger's reporting on Simpson. He and I chose to believe The Stranger's reporting; you're free to not believe it if you so choose. I was merely noting that Mtn. Beaver commented as if Simpson's claims concerning Murray were entirely true, even though Simpson has made demonstrably false statements in his account.

"...lashing out on chronic alcoholics..."

You misunderstood my little piece of fiction concerning trolling the drunks in Pioneer Square. It was merely to illustrate how easy it could be to concoct allegations against you, which, by your logic, would then be attached to you forever. You seem not to like that very much, even as you assail Murray with the same tactic.

@8:

The Stranger seems to have accepted your "alturnative" view of spelling pretty well.

(What's the problem -- are you slobbering over cute young boys again, and can't understand why the rest of us don't find that topic to be as compelling as you do?)

@15:

In my comment, I noted that Simpson has made at least one false statement, and had at least one known tie to a local anti-gay activist. You responded by assuming Simpson is telling the truth, and that the only person who had maliciously influenced him was Murray.

Why do you base your comment on claims not proven, instead of upon facts?

I stand by my original comment: the most interesting parts of Simpson's story are the ones we don't yet know, and it's far more than mere coincidence that at least three of Murray's four accusers have known ties to local anti-gay activists.

"The local gay community knows Ed well enough to take the stand that is appropriate."

Cowardly abandonment is not a "stand", it's a "fall."

"That is not the same as the entire community being accused."

Your naïveté would be charming if it were not so painful.

"#1 Murray ran himself out of town."

The chronic inebriates in Pioneer Square to whom I offered future payouts from a lawsuit against you all agreed you sacrifice goats to Cthulu, but differed on whether you molest the goats before you sacrifice them. Should I ever file suit on these bases, you'll just have to admit you ran yourself out of town.

"...allegations' impact on Seattle's LGBT community, which is a rich and worthy angle to mine..."

Indeed, the cold, callous, and shameful abandonment of Murray by the very "community" he had devoted most of his adult life to uplifting has been largely ignored in local coverage of this story.

Things were not always thus. Twenty-five years ago, when anti-gay bigotry struck hard in Oregon and Colorado, local LGBTQ activists banded together to fight it here. Hands Off Washington (of which I was an early member) united Washingtonians against bigotry and saved our local LGBTQ community from the domestic terrorism suffered in the other states. (See the documentary film, "Ballot Measure 9," for the impact on Oregon of the bigotry there.)

The anti-gay bigots of that day used the stereotype of the gay man as the soulless sexual predator, attempting to ban gays from adopting their own children (!). We fought those attacks effectively then; watching our local LGBTQ "community" abjectly surrender in the face of them now makes for a depressing, disheartening spectacle of needless failure and squandered opportunity.

"Simpson's story is pretty compelling..."

The parts left untold were the most interesting. How did he go from having amicable (if apparently infrequent) communications with Murray to accusing him of rape? Rabidly anti-gay preacher Ken Hutcherson was part of that trajectory, as was a 12-step program which Simpson falsely claimed was the basis for his going public against Murray.

I think it is far beyond mere coincidence that at least three of Murray's four accusers have direct connections to local anti-gay activists.

"I would assume you understand how you get from 61% to 3%."

No, that was me suggesting you do the math to get from the 61% you claimed to the 3% the restaurant claimed. That was not me saying you get to assume the very thing you need most to prove.

"It isn't for me to decide whether it is a big hit for that business or not."

Well, that was quick:

"The reality is this is a huge hit..."

You two can fight that out amongst yourselves, 'K?

"...my competitors are all closing."

"Why does the court let Beauregard do anything with this in the absence of some shred of a theory why it's relevant?"

Because victim. Must believe.

"Let it go.
"You won."

No, Murray has not been driven from office, bankrupted, harassed into suicide, or whatever other penalty anti-gay bigot Jack Connelly hath decreed for our state's most successful gay politician. Loony-tunes Lincoln Logs Lawyer Beauregard T. Justice will keep demanding everything until that happens, or until his client suddenly dies in a mysterious trash-compactor accident, after which Heidi Groover will write a post telling us that Murray's alleged abuse of D. H. left him accident-prone, nothing to see here, move along.

"Why do we still care about any of this?"

Indeed, why did we ever care at all?
