Rep. Tierney brother-in-law says Tierney sat with bookies in Fenway Park but Tierney denies it
- 6/29/12, "He’s no ‘pockets’ protector," Howie Carr, Boston Herald
This doesn’t happen very often, a racketeer putting the blast on a politician. Professional courtesy and all that.
But Daniel Eremian, age 62, is under a lot of pressure. This morning, he begins a three-year bit for racketeering, conspiracy and illegal gaming. An admitted alcoholic, he also had to forfeit $7.7 million in ill-gotten gains.
His sister, Patrice Tierney, also known as Mrs. Pockets, has already done a month in Club Fed. She handled $8 million for Dan and her other brother, Robert, who remains on the lam in a sunny place for shady people.
For two years, Dan Eremian dummied up. He wouldn’t tell you if your coat was on fire. Think omerta — silence. But yesterday, outside the courtroom, he told the Herald about his brother-in-law, the extinguished, I mean distinguished, statesman.
“Lemme tell you something about Tierney,” the raspy-voiced hood began. “He’s the biggest liar in the world. ...”...
But Tierney to this day sticks to his Sgt. Schultz defense. He knows nothing. His brother-in-law begs to disagree.
Oh really? Anyone we know?"...Tweet Stumbleupon StumbleUpon
