Rep. Tierney’s Wife To Plead Guilty To Tax Fraud
The wife of Massachusetts Congressman John Tierney is set to plead guilty to federal charges she helped her brother conceal income from an alleged illegal offshore gambling business that generated millions of dollars. Tierney says his wife accepts full responsibility for being "willfully blind" to her brother's actions. Is her story that she “trusted her brother too much” plausible? With just four weeks to go before the democratic incumbent faces reelection - will voters hold Tierney responsible at the polls for his wife’s actions? Should they? Is his republican challenger Bill Hudak a credible enough candidate to take advantage?.
