Cahill concedes campaign spoke with lottery ad firm

Under methodical questioning by a prosecutor, a terse and occasionally testy Timothy P. Cahill acknowledged Friday that his campaign operatives had multiple contacts with the Boston ad firm that was being paid public money to craft lottery ads.

Prosecutors allege that the communication demonstrates that Cahill, a former state treasurer, illegally conspired to use the ads, which praised lottery management, to boost his flagging run for governor in 2010.
