SEATTLE (AP) – Three decades before Ed Murray was elected Seattle’s mayor, an Oregon child-welfare investigator found that he had sexually abused his foster son, prompting state officials to conclude that “under no circumstances” should Murray serve as a foster parent in the future.
The findings were reported Sunday by The Seattle Times , after Oregon’s Department of Human Services unearthed old records – previously thought to have been destroyed – at the newspaper’s request.
In a written statement Sunday, Murray said the child-welfare investigator never interviewed him. He said the allegations were fully investigated and prosecutors never brought charges.
Murray’s former foster son, Jeff Simpson, is one of four men who publicly accused him this spring of sexually abusing him long ago. Murray adamantly denies the allegations, but declined to seek re-election.
