SEATTLE, WA — Seattle Mayor Ed Murray resigned on Wednesday after the left leaning mayor’s cousin came forward to allege that Murray had molested him as a child.
Murray makes the eleventh city mayor to be implicated in child sex crimes (http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/13/at-least-11-mayors-accused-of-child-sex-related-crimes-since-2016/) since Wikileaks, the anti-secrecy group run by Julian Assange, leaked a wealth of documents belonging to the DNC in 2016 that purported to show a connection between child sex rings and high ranking politicians in the Democratic party (https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/). The release, later to be known as PizzaGate, was eventually blamed in part for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s loss to Republican challenger Donald Trump.
Former Ohio mayor Richard Keenan, also a Democrat, was sentenced to life in prison last April after being convicted of raping a 4 year old girl. As reported by WFMJ (http://www.wfmj.com/story/35230216/former-hubbard-mayor-richard-keenan-receives-life-sentence-for-child-rape), Keenan avoided trial for his crimes after pleading guilty to eight charges of gross sexual imposition, eight charges of rape, and four of attempted rape. Despite his guilty plea, Keenan claimed no wrong doing in the matter as he insisted that the four year old child was a “willing participant” in her rape (https://patch.com/ohio/cleveland/former-hubbard-mayor-charged-rape-claims-child-was-willing-participant)
Christopher Wright, mayor of Dawson, Georgia, was arrested in March after prosecutors say he raped a 12 year old girl and forced her to perform oral sex on him (http://www.wtoc.com/story/31244361/dawson-mayor-implicated-in-molestation-of-12-year-old).
In August, Anthony Silva, then-mayor of Stockton, California and self proclaimed “champion for children”, was arrested after prosecutors alleged he provided children at a camp for under privileged kids with alcohol and recorded them playing a game of strip poker (http://abc13.com/news/prosecutor-mayor-gave-alcohol-to-teens-played-strip-poker/1457787/).
In a case very much similar to that of Seattle mayor Ed Murray, Stillwater, New York Mayor Rick Nelson also resigned earlier this month after being arrested for possession of child porn. Nelson also faced a wealth of other related charges including that of child rape and sodomy of a minor (http://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Embattled-Stillwater-mayor-faced-past-rape-12168099.php).
The arrests are just the latest in a quite war the Trump administration is waging on child sex crime. Trump, who vowed during his campaign to do all he could to protect children from child sex crimes if elected, has ordered Justice Department officials to crack down on loopholes that had allowed child sex offenders to escape justice in administrations past.
Within the first two months of the Trump administration, more than 1,500 pedophiles had been taken into custody according to published reports (http://www.worldtribune.com/unreported-1500-pedophile-arrests-have-been-made-nationally-since-trump-took-office/). The need to protect children from sex trafficking is an issue that Trump has clearly been passionate about.
“Got to do something about these missing children grabbed by the perverts. Too many incidents – fast trial, death penalty,” Trump tweeted on October 8, 2012, years before announcing his candidacy
Despite that fact, the mainstream media has continued to ignore the arrests.
“This should be one of the biggest stories in the national news. Instead, the mainstream media has barely, if at all, covered any of these mass pedophile arrests. This begs the question – why?” Liz Crokin wrote for Townhall.com on Feb. 25 (https://townhall.com/columnists/lizcrokin/2017/02/25/why-the-msm-is-ignoring-trumps-sex-trafficking-busts-n2290379).
According to Unicef, An estimated 1.2 million children are victims of child sex rings each year (https://www.unicef.org/protection/57929_58005.html).
