Cahill to pay $100,000 to settle case

Saying that he hopes to never “see the inside of Suffolk Superior Court again,” former state treasurer Timothy P. Cahill agreed to pay a $100,000 fine Friday for violating state ethics law during his 2010 campaign for governor.

The decision settles the public ­corruption charges against him and brings a close to a long-running political saga. It also ends a controversial prosecution that charged Cahill with conspiring to use a $1.5 million, publicly funded lottery ad blitz to boost his struggling, and ultimately unsuccessful, campaign for governor.
