Kin reportedly lashes out at Tierney
Minutes after he was sentenced to three years in prison on gambling and racketeering charges Thursday, the brother-in-law of US Representative John F. Tierneycq told the Salem News that the congressman was fully aware of the family’s gambling operation. “He knew everything that was going on,” said Daniel Eremian, whose sister, Patrice, is married to Tierney. “He sat in the boxes with bookies at Fenway Park.” Eremian also said that his sister was “railroaded” into pleading guilty to tax fraud in 2010 to save her husband’s political career. “She got forced to do that for him,” Eremian told the News.
