Martha Coakley Sure Has Been Busy Lately

You know the saying, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire”? Yeah, that’s basically what Jon Kellar is saying about yesterday’s indictment of former state treasurer Timothy Cahill on corruption charges stemming from taxpayer-funded lottery ads, which also boosted his unsuccessful campaign for governor. This morning, Cahill told WCVB that he did nothing wrong — and vowed to fight the charges. “The attorney general has alleged that I used public resources to run a campaign ad, which I did not. My job as treasurer was to maximize revenue for the lottery, which we did, which I did, and that was my job and I performed that duty, with or without a campaign,” he said. [CBS | WCVB]
