Brother-In-Law Says Rep. Tierney Threw Wife ‘Under The Bus’, ‘Knew Everything’
BOSTON (AP) — A brother-in-law of U.S. Rep. John Tierney blasted him on Thursday after being sentenced to three years in federal prison for his role in an illegal offshore gambling business that led to charges against Tierney’s wife.
The Salem News and the Boston Herald reported that Daniel Eremian said outside the federal court that Tierney is “a liar” and “knew everything.”Now, Tierney (rhymes with tyranny!) *is* a politician, so saying he's a liar is redundant. Aside from that, it's a he-said, he-said kinda thing, with the brother-in-law claiming one thing and Tierney claiming another. I would think that if there were "bookies" present when Tierney was involved, that it would be a simple matter to get at least one witness to say, yeah, Rep. Tierney was present when deals were made... In any case, it's hard to know who to believe in this case: on the one hand, we've got a guy who's made a living off of the misery of his fellow human beings; on the other hand we have a bookie.
Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week...
That is all.
