Man jailed over threats against Murray, Sawant

A 32-year-old Seattle man accused of threatening Mayor Ed Murray and Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant was ordered held on $600,000 bail during a probable-cause hearing this afternoon.

Mitchell Munro Taylor was booked into the King County Jail on Thursday night for investigation of malicious harassment after threatening, anti-gay postings from his account were left on Murray’s Facebook page. One post said “Mayor, meet Harvey Milk,” a reference to slain San Francisco Board of Supervisors member Harvey Milk. Milk, who was openly gay, was murdered in 1978.

Other posts said “death to socialist council member” and “feminists must get raped and die.”

Sawant, a socialist, was elected to the Seattle City Council in November.

Murray’s office declined to comment. Taylor has no criminal history.
