MA-6 Update: Democrat John Tierney Tries to Distance Himself From His Wife

Posted on | October 9, 2010 | 6 Comments

BOSTON – Howie Carr in the Boston Herald calls the Democrat’s gangster brother-in-law an Armenian Whitey Bulger:

Patrice Eremian Chew Tierney, aka Mrs. John Tierney. Gets indicted for laundering millions in ill-gotten gains for her brother, a fugitive gangster, and when she gets caught, she tells the judge she’s depressed and gets fined $2,500. . . .
And what does John Tierney say on behalf of his felon wife?
“Today’s not about me.”
. . .

Not about you, except that your mother-in-law contributed at least $4,800 to you while tending a bank account for her fugitive sons. Kevin Rennie notes that Tierney has changed his story:

The guilty plea contradicted earlier statements from the seven-term congressman that he and Patrice had nothing to do with the fugitive side of her criminal family. . . .

Read the whole thing. I just got off the plane at Logan Airport and got to my hotel here, and am due to have dinner with a local Republican operative in a few minutes. Please hit the tip jar.

    Well, it’s hardly a surprise that Tierney is distancing himself from his wife. Look at his role model: how many people Obama has thrown under the bus.
