Murray’s Accuser Says He’s Ready to Tell His Story Under Oath

But first, his lawyers want to know about ‘the noted mole.’

A lawyer for D.H., the Kent man accusing Mayor Ed Murray of molesting him when he was a troubled teenager in the 1980s, has sent a letter to Murray’s lawyer inviting him to interview his client under oath.

The letter, from Lincoln C. Beauregard, also makes a request: “Prior to D.H.’s deposition, it would be appreciated if you could confirm that Mayor Murray has the noted mole.” That would be the mole that D.H. claims he saw on Murray’s penis, and which another accuser says he saw on his scrotum.

Lawyers asking other lawyers about the details of the mayor’s genitals may be an early indication of how ugly this affair could get.

In the letter, Beauregard references a press conference given by Murray’s lawyer, Robert Sulkin, in which Sulkin said Murray wants to “pin” D.H. on his story. Beauregard says they welcome the opportunity, and would like the deposition conducted “ASAP—perhaps next week.”

“D.H. is anxious to respond to your public allegations of wrongful motive,” he writes.

The lawsuit also called for Murray to be deposed within 90 days.

The letter can be found here.
