Another Mass Democrat added to 2013's National Most Corrupt list

Great summary below of the longtime Democrat Rep. John Tierney addition to the 2013 "Most Corrupt" List. Tierney has a long history and ties to a family illegal gambling ring, tax fraud, alleged racketeering and crime syndicate activities. In a move that will surely get him exalted status in the Mass Dem Hall of Fame! He's appealing to his grassroots base for sure!

In Case You Missed It
 Rep.Tierney added to 2013's "Most Corrupt" List
Boston- Longtime Democratic Congressman John Tierney's persistent ethical issues today landed him on a national watchdog group's list of 2013′s Most Corrupt Members of Congress. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, gave Rep.Tierney a Dishonorable Mention and took him to task for his failure to report thousands of dollars tied to his wife's involvement in an illegal gambling operation.
CITIZENS FOR RESPONSIBILITY AND ETHICS IN WASHINGTON: Rep. Tierney’s tax returns and personal financial disclosure forms have a big hole — thousands of dollars in payments his wife received tied to her brother's illegal gambling operation.
Rep. Tierney’s wife, Patrice Tierney, received over $200,000 from an account she managed for her brother, who was charged with running an illegal gambling business in Antigua.  Rep. Tierney may have violated federal law and House rules by leaving the income off his tax returns and financial disclosure forms.
  • Nine-term member of Congress representing Massachusetts’ 6th district
  • Formerly under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for failing to disclose his wife’s assets and income on his tax returns and personal financial disclosure forms
