Cahill seeks to dismiss charges in corruption case
BOSTON (AP) -- Lawyers for former Massachusetts Treasurer Timothy Cahill are planning to ask a court to dismiss public corruption charges against him.
A hearing on motions to dismiss the charges is scheduled for Tuesday in Suffolk Superior Court in Boston.
Cahill is accused of airing taxpayer-funded ads for the state lottery as a means of promoting his unsuccessful independent campaign for governor in 2010. The treasurer oversees the lottery.
He's charged with violating state ethics laws and procurement fraud.
Cahill, who was indicted in April, has said he did nothing wrong and pleaded not guilty.
