Wyoming Secretary of State Won’t Run After Second Sexual Misconduct Accusation
Another woman has come forward to accuse Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Murray of sexual misconduct.
Theresa Sullivan Twiford, the daughter of former Wyoming Gov. Mike Sullivan, says Murray forcibly kissed her when she was 18.
Twiford says the alleged incident happened in front of Murray's house, after she baby-sat for his family on New Year's Eve 1988.
"I have absolutely no recollection of this incident whatsoever and, as such, will not engage in any conjecture about it in the media," Murray said in a statement Tuesday.
Murray also announced that he "will not seek reelection or run for higher office in 2018." The 59-year-old Republican had been considering running for governor.
Murray denies another woman's recent claim that he sexually attacked her over 35 years ago.
