Rep. John Tierney bridles at another attack

Another brother-in-law of Representative John F. Tierney, this one a fugitive from justice living in Antigua, said Friday that the congressman was fully aware of the family’s illegal gambling operation, a charge Tierney strongly denied.

Robert Eremian’s assertion, in a telephone interview from the Caribbean island where he has been living since about 2002, came a day after his brother, Daniel, said outside a Massachusetts courthouse that Tierney “knew everything” about the offshore betting business.
