Cahill witness describes tensions at lottery

According to the prosecution’s first witness in the trial of former state treasurer Timothy P. Cahill, the mood at the ­Massachusetts State Lottery turned tense in the summer ­before Cahill’s November 2010 defeat in a bid for governor.

The attorney general alleges that Cahill and campaign treasurer Scott Campbell conspired to coordinate lottery ads with the campaign to aid Cahill, a Democrat turned independent. Both men have pleaded not guilty to two counts of conspiracy and a purchasing violation. Cahill pleaded not guilty to an additional charge of using his official office for an unwarranted privilege.
