Mayor William Lantigua of Lawrence responded yesterday to a Boston Globe story identifying him as the target of a state and federal probe for possible corruption and other wrongdoing. “I am 100 percent innocent. It’s nothing but a whole bunch of innuendos. If you come by on Monday, we’ll talk,’’ he said in a brief phone interview. Earlier in the day, Lantigua held a press conference in Lawrence and told The Eagle Tribune and other media that allegations of corruption against him and others in his administration are lies. “There is no doubt at the end of the day I will be standing tall because I am not breaking any laws,’’ he said in an interview with the Lawrence paper. “There is nothing to hide . . . I am standing here today to say there is no corruption in my administration.’’
