(NECN) - Mass. Lt. Governor Tim Murray says he's not concerned and is actually a bit relieved by the investigation involving him.

The Attorney General is investigating whether or not Murray broke campaign finance laws.

On Thursday, it was reported that state campaign finance regulators may have evidence that Murray broke the law by taking political donations raised by Michael McLaughlin, the former head of the Chelsea Housing Authority facing federal charges for under-reporting his salary.

Campaign law prevents public employees for raising money for candidates.

At an event in Worcester, Murray said he did nothing wrong to his knowledge.

"We asked for the investigation. I want to get money back to anybody who was pressured, or asked that who wasn't supposed to, so we asked our CPF. They've referred it, that's been, you know, reported publicly since the fall. Last year I answered any questions and we stand ready to continue to work with them to get money that we should not be in receipt of back to whoever gave it," Murray said.

The Attorney General's Office is not commenting on the investigation because it's ongoing.
