Tierney Election Impact? [POLL]

Will Congressman John Tierney's family's legal issues affect his re-election campaign?

It was a tough week for Congressman John Tierney. Late last week, his brother-in-law Daniel Eremian -- while being sentenced for racketeering in connection to his brother Robert Eremian's illegal offshore gambling business -- .

Then, Robert Eremian himself -- a fugitive living in the Caribbean -- .

Tierney held a press conference on Tuesday denying these claims and dismissing the Eremians' statements as bitterness and lies. Congressman Tierney, whose wife served time in prison for her , was not found to have had anything to do with the illegal activities of his brothers-in-law.

Tierney's opponent, Republican former Senate Minority Leader Richard Tisei, has been pressuring Tierney for months on the issue.

So we want to know your thoughts on this as to how it will shape the campaign. Do you think this issue will affect the congressional election and influence people's votes? Leave a comment and discuss.

It will have a huge negative Impact. I have always voted for him in the past but not so this year.
Mark Ouimette July 07, 2012 at 03:41 PM
I voted for him before. Never again.
Ed Manoogian July 07, 2012 at 08:12 PM
I'm done with him. Time for someone else. Tisei looks good.

I will NOT vote for him again. NHL and his wife are just as guilty as his brother-in-law!
Whitney Harris July 08, 2012 at 04:33 PM
It will definitely affect my vote. I'll be voting for his opponent.
