Wow … the Seattle Times reports Tuesday that Mayor Ed Murray has resigned after a fifth person — this one a younger cousin — came forward to accuse the mayor of sexual abuse. Murray will resign his post at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Being a Democrat, Murray unfortunately will have to face that difficult media environment that Hillary Clinton spoke of Tuesday — the same national media that has let charges of child sex abuse fly under the radar since April.

THAT’S NOT FUNNY … OK, it’s pretty funny.

Let’s see …

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.

Murray attributed Dyer’s claims to bad blood between two estranged wings of the family.
