The mayor of Puyallup, Wash., publicly apologized after two women accused him of inappropriately touching them in the workplace. But he insisted the interactions were not sexual.

“I am truly sorry and embarrassed,” said Mayor Rick Hansen at a city council meeting on Tuesday.

Following an internal investigation, the city issued a report that detailed the complaints of one woman who said the mayor had touched her in a “playful” and “flirtatious” way that she believed crossed the line. A second woman, former council member Nicole Martineau, came forward at the meeting to allege the mayor had also touched her in an inappropriate manner by putting his hands on her shoulders and shaking her back and forth. Martineau’s complaint was not part of the city’s investigation.

The first incident of unwanted touching occurred last April as the woman, who was not identified and currently works for the city of Puyallup, struggled with a copy machine, according to the city’s report obtained by ABCNews.com.

“[She] had her back to the copier and Mayor Hansen touched her shoulder and leaned in toward her. He allegedly said, “What would you say if I told you I was a little bit afraid of you?” according to the report.

Five days later, the mayor allegedly “put his flat, open hand on [her] hip toward the front, close to her abdomen,” the report said.

Hansen didn’t deny the two “touching” interactions but said they were not meant to be sexual. The first one, at the copy machine, was “just small talk,” the mayor told ABC News’ Seattle affiliate.

“That really was about her exercising, that she’s a strong person,” he said.

In the second instance when his hand touched the woman’s hip, Hansen told the affiliate he was only indicating that the purple in the woman’s shirt matched the color of the cancer-awareness ribbons at city hall.

Council members released a formal admonishment of Hansen on Tuesday, calling the mayor’s behavior “inappropriate.”

The mayor said he had been through sensitivity training since the April complaint and understood that he had crossed the line.

“If there is anything I did that made anyone feel uncomfortable, I would hope they would come and tell me,” he told the station, adding that from now on, he’d stick to handshakes.

The San Bernardino City Council votes to file for bankruptcy. Facing a $45-million budget shortfall and the prospect of not being able to pay city workers, the panel Tuesday voted to file municipal bankruptcy, the third California city to do so in recent weeks.

The vote came shortly after the interim city manager recommended seeking bankruptcy protection, saying the city may not be able to make payroll over the next three months. “We have an immediate cash flow issue,” Andrea Miller told the mayor and seven-member council.

The dire fiscal situation remains even after the city negotiated $10 million in concessions from employees and slashed the workforce by 20% over the last four years.

If San Bernardino declares bankruptcy, it would be the third California city to do so in recent weeks, joining Stockton and Mammoth Lakes. The council called special back-to-back budget meetings Tuesday and Wednesday, which are expected to attract a packed house at City Hall.

A Santa Ana City councilman was arrested Monday afternoon on suspicion of 12 felonies, including sexual battery, stalking and six felony counts of false imprisonment.

Carlos Bustamante, a former executive manager with Orange County Public Works, resigned from the government post in October amid allegations of sexual misconduct, which he has denied.

The Orange County district attorney’s office said in a statement that no further information will be released until a news conference scheduled for Tuesday morning.

May 29, 2012        4:46 p.m.

Seattle software engineer Justin Ferrari had just picked up his parents from the airport for a visit, his two young children in tow, when a bullet slammed through a window of the family van and into his head. Ferrari died in his father’s arms.

“He just happened to be in the wrong place, wrong day. But now in Seattle, they’re shooting everywhere,” said Massaret Habeti, who ushered Ferrari’s distraught mother and young children into her restaurant immediately after Thursday’s shooting.

Ferrari’s death was one of several cases of bystanders cut down by gunfire across Seattle in recent days, shootings that have brought the city’s long-simmering gun violence problem alarmingly home to neighborhoods across the city.

On Saturday, 33-year-old teacher’s aide Ryan Burr was waiting to cross the street near the Space Needle when a bullet — apparently aimed at someone else during an argument — struck him in the leg. The gunman fled into the crowds at the nearby Folklife Festival, underway at Seattle Center, where police later arrested a suspect.

“I never saw any fight that preceded this. I never even saw the person,” Burr, who was treated at the hospital and released, said in an interview.  “What I heard was that somebody bashed the guy’s face with a skateboard, and it escalated from there.”

Police also were investigating four drive-by shootings early Sunday morning, including the case of a teenage girl who had to duck behind a dresser as a hail of bullets hit her bedroom.

That same night, a home invasion left a man with a life-threatening gunshot wound to the chest. And three people were arrested early Tuesday after multiple reports of gunshots fired at a park along Lake Washington.

These incidents happened in a city already reeling from a shooting April 22 in Pioneer Square, adjacent to the city’s downtown financial and shopping districts. In that incident, Nicole Westbrook, 21, a culinary student who had just moved to Seattle, was killed by a shot from a moving car while walking home with her boyfriend.

In all, more than 60 rounds were recorded in the city over the Memorial Day weekend, Deputy Police Chief Nick Metz said at a briefing for the Seattle City Council on Tuesday. “We’re absolutely much better than this. So this is really a sad thing to see,” he said.

The violence, especially in the case of Ferrari’s death, Metz said, has  “created a great deal of concern throughout the city because of its randomness — and the fact that it could have been just about anybody at that point in time.”

Violence appears random

Police suspect gang involvement in at least some of the shootings. Seattle, like most urban areas, has been troubled with gang violence over the years, but its overall homicide rate has been among the lowest in the country. The recent shootings, though — 15 murders so far, compared to 21 in all of 2011 — threaten to put a dent in Seattle’s record, City Councilman Nick Licata warned.

“If we continue at the rate we’re going this year, it’ll be about a 20% increase. Which is not good,” he said.

One of the most troubling features of the recent incidents is that on at least two occasions, police responding to incidents were greeted by hostile crowds who did not immediately allow officers to do their work. In one case, on May 16, medics were delayed reaching the victim of a shooting at a south Seattle fast food restaurant after several young men at the scene stripped off their shirts and challenged police officers to a fight.

There have been long-standing complaints, especially among minorities, about heavy-handed police tactics. The U.S. Justice Department announced in December that it had found a “pattern or practice of excessive force” in the department, though it did not find a clear pattern of bias. Federal authorities have been in discussions with the city for how to resolve the issue.

Tuesday’s City Council discussion dwelled heavily on the problem of getting citizens to cooperate with police to identify suspects and make arrests, and Licata suggested that reforms initiated as part of the Justice Department review could help improve the community’s perceptions.

“I think the sooner we move in with a strong and fair agreement with the [Department of Justice] and the community sees that, I think that’ll help give them confidence,” he said.

Police said they are already stepping up patrols, with a number of officers working overtime through the weekend, and are working with community groups and schools on anti-violence initiatives.

“We want to make it clear that we’re there, and if you’re going to be stupid enough to commit violence, you’re going to be arrested, and you are going to go to jail,” Metz said.

May 19, 2012

The two brides — one in a cream-colored pantsuit, the other in a floor-sweeping gown — walked down the aisle to the strains of Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen.

In a room bedecked with wildflowers, and sprinkled with a who’s who of New York elected officials, Christine C. Quinn, the speaker of the New York City Council and a leading candidate to be mayor, married her longtime partner, Kim M. Catullo, on Saturday evening, in one of the most prominent same-sex weddings of a public official to date.

The wedding, coming a year after the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York State and a year before a mayoral election in which Ms. Quinn is aiming to be the Democratic nominee, has been the buzz of New York political circles in recent weeks and has brought Ms. Quinn the kind of celebrity-style coverage rarely enjoyed by a local candidate for office. As she has talked about the fun of trying on dresses and the stress of writing her wedding vows, it has also provided her an opportunity to soften her sometimes tough image and to remind New Yorkers that she would be both the first female and the first openly gay New York City mayor.

The wedding took place in the early evening at the Highline Stages, an event space in the meatpacking district, before an audience of nearly 300 guests, including friends and family as well as dozens of prominent officials. Among those in attendance were Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo; Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg; New York’s two senators, Kirsten E. Gillibrand and Charles E. Schumer; New York City’s police commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly; the first deputy mayor, Patricia Harris; and several members of New York’s congressional delegation, including Charles B. Rangel, Joseph Crowley, Carolyn B. Maloney, Jerrold Nadler and Nydia M. Velázquez. There were also several members of the New York State Legislature and a dozen members of the City Council.

Ms. Quinn and Ms. Catullo, both 45, walked down the aisle on the arms of their fathers. Ms. Quinn was wearing a sleeveless gown by Carolina Herrera with a beaded waistband, Ms. Catullo a made-to-measure cream-colored Ralph Lauren suit. Ms. Quinn’s bright red hair was pulled back with a hair comb that she had had made from two enamel brooches that had belonged to her mother, pansies with a little diamond in the center of each.

Audra McDonald, the Tony Award-winning actress and star of the Broadway musical “Porgy & Bess,” sang George and Ira Gershwin’s song “He Loves and She Loves,” with a slight tweak to the lyrics. The couple played a video they had made about their relationship, in which they talked about having bonded, soon after meeting a decade ago, over having both lost their mothers to cancer as teenagers. In her vows, Ms. Quinn said that she could not imagine life without Ms. Catullo.

New York’s former chief judge, Judith S. Kaye, who in 2006 wrote an impassioned dissent to a court ruling rejecting the right of same-sex couples to marry, officiated. According to guests, when she pronounced the words — “In accordance with the laws of the State of New York, and the authority that has been vested in me by the people of the State of New York, I pronounce you completely, absolutely and permanently married” — the crowd stood up and burst into applause.

“It’s an incredibly personal moment, but it’s just also very powerful in terms of progress we’re making here in America toward equal justice,” the New York State attorney general, Eric T. Schneiderman, said afterward.

“Walking down the aisle was very emotional, and the video was a real hoot,” said Jimmy Van Bramer, a councilman from Queens who attended the wedding with his partner, Dan Hendrick, whom he plans to marry in July. “But it also really revealed who they are and why they love each other.”

After the ceremony, guests dined on a buffet dinner of spring pea risotto, roast chicken and grilled swordfish. Everyone, including both New York senators — though not the mayor and the governor, who had left — joined the first dance, to Neil Diamond’s “I’m a Believer.”

In addition to the cake, which was five tiers of chocolate chip and chocolate custard layers, covered in white chocolate butter cream icing, guests were also treated to a surprise: The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, which offers flavors including “Bea Arthur,” drove up to the sidewalk outside to offer the crowd ice cream cones and milk shakes.

Ms. Quinn met Ms. Catullo, a products liability lawyer, in 2001, when they were set up by mutual friends. Last year, as Governor Cuomo was leading a push to legalize same-sex marriage, Ms. Quinn traveled to Albany to personally lobby lawmakers, invoking her and Ms. Catullo’s wish to marry while their fathers were still alive. When the bill passed, Ms. Quinn described the experience as “one of the best feelings I have ever had in my life.”

Ms. Quinn and her advisers took a cautious approach to dealing with public interest in the wedding. On Saturday, no news media were allowed inside, but Ms. Quinn’s staff gave out several photographs, as well as details about the décor and what the couple were wearing.

In a sign of how much attention the wedding has captured, by late afternoon Saturday a phalanx of television cameras was stationed on the sidewalk outside the entrance to the venue.

Mr. Schumer, speaking to reporters, who were penned behind a police barricade, said that that the country was “moving fast” on the issue of same-sex marriage, adding, “It’s not a question of if but when — everywhere.”
