Another Woman Accuses Wyoming Official of Misconduct

A second woman has accused Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Murray (R) of sexual misconduct, the Casper Star Tribune reports.

“Theresa Sullivan Twiford said that nearly 30 years ago, when she was 18 years old and babysitting for the Murray family, Ed Murray forcibly kissed her in front of his house… Twiford, the daughter of former Wyoming governor Mike Sullivan, decided to share her experience following the allegation made last month by a Colorado woman. The woman, Tatiana Maxwell, said that Murray sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s.”

Murray, who was widely considered a front-runner in this year’s race to replace Gov. Matt Mead (R), said he will not seek re-election or seek higher office.
