Wyoming Secretary of State Accused of Assault
Written by Andrew-Rossi on December 15, 2017
Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Murray is denying a woman’s claim he sexually attacked her over 35 years ago.
Tatiana Maxwell of Boulder, Colorado, said in a Facebook post Monday she worked with Murray and he invited her to their Cheyenne law office after hours. Maxwell alleges Murray, then a recent law school graduate, wrestled her to the ground and sexually attacked her. Maxwell says she told friends what happened but otherwise kept quiet for decades.
Murray denies the allegation first reported by KGAB, a Cheyenne radio station. He says in a statement that there is “no basis to this falsehood whatsoever.” Murray has been considering running for governor in 2018.
Maxwell is a significant Democratic Party donor but says her decision to speak out is not political.
