The fallout from the lawsuit filed by Independent gubernatorial candidate Tim Cahill continues to spill into the governor's race.

Cahill originally filed the suit to prevent his former campaign aides from sharing strategy secrets and other information with his Republican rival Charlie Baker. On Wednesday, Cahill's former aides were ordered by a state court judge to disclose by Monday whether or not they provided information to Baker's campaign.

But new details in the story keep emerging. The latest chapter has to do with emails released on Wednesday by the Cahill aides who deserted him. Those emails suggest that Cahill's campaign tried to influence an advertising campaign for the state lottery in a way that would benefit Cahill's run for governor. We talk with WBUR reporter Anthony Brooks, who caught up with Cahill today and asked him about the latest allegations.
