Brother-In-Law Says Rep. Tierney Threw Wife ‘Under The Bus’, ‘Knew Everything’
" BOSTON (AP) — A brother-in-law of U.S. Rep. John Tierney blasted him on Thursday after being sentenced to three years in federal prison for his role in an illegal offshore gambling business that led to charges against Tierney’s wife.

The Salem News and the Boston Herald reported that Daniel Eremian said outside the federal court that Tierney is “a liar” and “knew everything.”

The newspapers reported that Eremian said of Tierney, “He knew everything that was going on. He sat in the boxes with bookies at Fenway Park.”

“Daniel Eremian spent the last several years telling anyone who would listen, including a federal judge and jury, that he was innocent of charges the government accused him of committing,” said Tierney spokeswoman Kathryn Prael.

“Now he is claiming both to be innocent and that John Tierney should have known that he was guilty "
