Questions raised about Tierney’s disclosures

Officials with three nonpartisan open-government groups said this week that the House Committee on Ethics should investigate whether US Representative John F. Tierney was ­required to publicly disclose more than $200,000 that his wife received while managing a bank account with money that came from her brother’s ­illegal gambling business.

Tierney, an eight-term Democrat locked in a tough reelection fight, has not listed the money on finan­cial ­disclosure forms that members of Congress file annually, asserting that the money was a gift from a relative and therefore exempt from federal report­ing requirements.
