Note Arkansas Lottery connection: Cahill’s legal costs soaring – The Boston Globe

This was in the Boston Globe and it concerns the same company that provides scratch off tickets for the Arkansas Lottery. So far, the good people of Massachusetts are on the hook for over $300,000 for legal fees related to a pair of state officials.

This is not to suggest that the Lottery, its officials or Scientific Games are crooked. However, it is worth noting how things go when there is such a big pot of money just laying around.

In its suit, Bingo Innovative Software of Rhode Island alleges that Cahill and the executive director of the Massachusetts State Lottery, Mark J. Cavanagh, rigged contracts in a “pay to play’’ scheme that favored the huge international gaming company Scientific Games International. Bingo contends that Scientific Games, the state Lottery’s longtime supplier of scratch tickets, was given preferential treatment in a separate $22 million contract five years ago, in exchange for donations to Cahill’s political account. Cahill has said those accusations are baseless.
