Week in Review: Murray suit, Seattle income tax, Goodbye Safeco Field

Jun 16, 2017

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is leaving the door open for a write-in campaign after a Kent man drops a civil lawsuit alleging Murray sexually abused him three decades ago.

The state constitution says Seattle can't tax the rich, but the City Council still wants an income tax for people making more than $250,000 a year.

Jeff Bezos buys Whole Foods Market and asks Twitter where he should donate to charity.

And the Seattle Mariners won't be playing at Safeco Field after 2018. The team announced this week that its 20-year naming rights deal will expire after next season.

Listen live on Friday at noon and talk to us on Twitter using #KUOWwir. Audio from the show is posted later in the day.
