Cahill walks the walk

Former state treasurer Timothy P. Cahill walked the walk this past week when he backed up his public claims of innocence with testimony — under oath — at his corruption trial.

It distinguished Cahill from former House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasi, who declared his innocence when he was accused of taking kickbacks, but never testified on his own behalf before being convicted in federal court in 2011.
