Police investigating series of threats, hateful messages against Seattle mayor

SEATTLE (KOMO) — Police are investigating a series of incidents where homophobic slurs and hateful messages are being left outside the home of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.

Some seemed designed to intimidate or threaten.

Given that Durkan is the city's first lesbian mayor, a tag left scrawled on the street at her house Thursday night smacks of homophobia.

“This kind of vandalism, especially with the kind of misogynistic, homophobic language is completely unacceptable and crosses a line,” said Miri Cypers, the regional director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Pacific Northwest Office.
