The Boston Globe published a deep look at the Lt. Gov. Tim Murray's relationship with the embattled former head of the Chelsea Housing Authority, Michael McLaughlin. McLaughlin resigned under pressure after it was revealed he was earning $360,000 a year, more than the state said he was reporting. The Globe story presented strong evidence that McLaughlin was raising money for Murray, and that it was possibly done in ways that could violate campaign finance laws.
Also in state news, Gov. Deval Patrick released his spending plan Wednesday for the fiscal year starting July 1.
