Time for candor from Tim Murray
Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray has a chance to level with voters. As the Globe reported on Wednesday, federal and state investigators probing possible misdoings involving his former political confidant Michael McLaughlin have sought a sitdown with Murray. There’s nothing to keep Murray from revealing to the public the questions asked and answers given in such a session. Don’t look for Murray to be publicly forthcoming; he has taken a tight-lipped stance. But if he’s to revive his political prospects, he’ll eventually have to convince voters he’s been honest about McLaughlin.
