Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has announced plans to resign following multiple accusations of sexual abuse after a fifth accuser -- who is the mayor's younger cousin -- came forward and alleged that Murray repeatedly molested him in the 1970s.

Murray, 62, announced Tuesday that he will step down effective 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The mayor had already said that he wouldn't seek a second term.

Accuser Joseph Dyer, who is a dialysis technician and Air Force veteran, says the molestation occurred in New York when he was a teen, according to The Seattle Times.

The 54-year-old Dyer — Murray's first cousin once removed — told the newspaper that he wants the mayor punished for the alleged actions, saying, "I have had enough. ... Something has got to be done."

Murray has denied the accusation, attributing it to a longstanding family schism.
