Mass.: No records of Lt Gov.'s phone records
BOSTON—Massachusetts officials say they have no records of phone calls, emails and texts that Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray may have sent or received from his cell phone around the time a car he was driving sped off the highway and overturned last November.
Deputy Chief Counsel Abim Thomas told The Associated Press on Thursday that the governor's office does not received itemized bills from its phone company for calls and text services.
Thomas was responding to a request for those records under public records law. He said although the governor's office is exempt from the law, officials occasionally consider voluntary disclosure on a case-by-case basis and a review showed there are no records to satisfy AP's request.
Murray was possibly asleep while driving 108 miles per hour on Interstate 190 before the crash in Sterling. He was cited Tuesday.
