Seattle mayor Ed Murray denied accusations that he raped men in the 1980s, then paid them off to keep the crimes quiet.

Murray denies the accusations, pointing to some details in one lawsuit that he insists are lies. 

"We already know that one of the claims that he made about my anatomy was proven to be false," Murray said. "I had an examination and asked folks to pull up past records on my anatomy."

Murray's attorney says the accusations are politically motivated.
