I don't think this article was in Treasurer Cahill's master plan.
"I think the treasurer is running the lottery more for the benefit of its administrators and employees than the taxpayers of Massachusetts," said David Tuerck, an economist and executive director of the Beacon Hill Institute at Suffolk University, a nonpartisan think tank. "The state needs to put the lottery on the list of agencies that need a thorough investigation of how they are run, with a view toward vastly improving performance."
Most of the lottery's increased 'performance' got eated, as Atrios would say, by Cahill's excess. Real gubernatorial material, that one.

Also, let's just call this a funny coincidence for now...
The company that has received the multimillion-dollar contract to promote the lottery is Hill, Holliday, a large advertising firm whose executives have been major contributors to Cahill's campaign fund.
$46,000 to Cahill's campaign. No problem there, right?
