Jones calls out Treasurer Cahill for blatant hypocrisy

BOSTON—House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. issued the following statement, saying Treasurer Tim Cahill is a blatant hypocrite for his recent comments regarding terrorism.

Treasurer Tim Cahill really should think before he speaks. Although he’d have you believe different, Treasurer Cahill has long endorsed doing business with known terrorist state, Iran. In fact, when the House held a hearing on divesting the Commonwealth’s interests from Iran, Treasurer Cahill testified against the legislation saying he and his pension staff should have the right to decide where to invest.

The only thing transparent about Treasurer Tim Cahill is his political posturing. The blatant hypocrisy displayed by Cahill today really should serve as a reminder that he has no problem saying whatever is politically convenient at the time.
