That is to say, no one in Massachusetts believes him, as the Huffington Post reporter did and missed some major nuances in the coverage of the resignation of Lt. Govenor Tim Murray.
Money appears to have been a motivating factor for Murray. He earns less than $125,000 per year, while as head of the Chamber he is expected to earn over $200,000, according to the Globe.
In a press conference today Murray claimed he was approached by the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce and asked him to become the president and CEO. He said this was a great opportunity and he's taking it now because it wouldn't be available in a year and a half when his term ends.
The first question from a reporter called him on his fake story, asking if this has anything to do with his possible upcoming indictment for possibly breaking multiple campaign laws. He already dropped his bid for governor after his connections to salary-stuffed bureaucrat Michael McLaughlin were exposed.
That time his explanation was he wanted to spend more time with his family.
His worst excuse was after he crashed his car at 5:30 a.m. far from home and said he was in the area surveying Hurricane Sandy storm damage in the dark. It didn't help when he changes his story after police learned he had been driving at 108 m.p.h. He claimed he must have sped up after falling asleep at the wheel.
Sure Tim, sure.
Tim Murray is a serial liar, and he's not even a good liar. Bill Clinton was able to fool people from time to time while Murray can't even seem to convince himself. Even when he's quitting in shame he has no shame.
