Former Mass. treasurer Timothy Cahill pleads not guilty to ethics charges over lottery ads
By Associated Press
BOSTON — Former Massachusetts treasurer Timothy Cahill has pleaded not guilty to ethics charges.
Cahill entered his plea Wednesday at Suffolk Superior Court.
Cahill and two former aides face public corruption charges for allegedly orchestrating a television advertising campaign for the state lottery, funded with taxpayer dollars that prosecutors say was really intended to boost Cahill’s failed 2010 campaign for governor.
