CBS Boston reports Murray has a new job lined up already.
UPDATE, 12:15 p.m.: The Massachusetts Republican Party was quick to jump on the reports about Murray's resignation, saying Murray is trying "to outrun the scandal that dogs him" in a statement on their website.

Lt. Gov. leaves Ferry Details to Richard Davey.
Lt. Gov. Tim Murray, while visiting Bunker Hill Community College Wednesday, called the proposed service cuts worrying Charlestown residents a legacy of The Big Dig. The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority, Murray said, had been saddled with Big Dig Debts “without having a way to pay for them.” “Let’s be clear eyed, we’ve got a funding challenge,” Murray said, adding that the state needed to have an “adult conversation” on how to deal with transportation funding in the future. Murray said he would leave specifics on how the T’s budget crisis should be dealt with—particularly in regard to the Charlestown Ferry—to Richard Davey, head of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. For this year, Murray said, he hopes that the state can …
