Murray decries story on US bribery case indictment

Senate President Therese Murray’s office pushed back Thursday against a Globe article about a federal indictment charging the state’s former probation commissioner with 17 counts of bribing state legislators.

Murray’s spokesman, David Falcone, called the article “misleading and irresponsible,” pointing out that no lawmakers have been charged in the case against John J. O’Brien, the former probation chief. The article stated in its third paragraph that legislators had not been charged.
