Mrs. Congresscritter gets 30 days for tax cheating

January 14, 2011

From The Hill's blog:

The wife of Rep. John Tierney (D-Mass.) was sentenced to 30 days in jail Thursday after pleading guilty to helping her brother engage in tax fraud.

Patricia Tierney, 59, pleaded guilty in October to four counts of helping her brother, fugitive Robert Eremian, prepare false federal tax returns.

The prosecutors seem to think her husband was ignorant. When you see the work they do in Congress, it's hard to argue with that.
