Dishonorable Mention

Rep. Tierney’s tax returns and personal financial disclosure forms have a big hole — thousands of dollars in payments his wife received tied to her brother's illegal gambling operation.

Rep. Tierney’s wife, Patrice Tierney, received over $200,000 from an account she managed for her brother, who was charged with running an illegal gambling business in Antigua.  Rep. Tierney may have violated federal law and House rules by leaving the income off his tax returns and financial disclosure forms.

  • Nine-term member of Congress representing Massachusetts’ 6th district
  • Formerly under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for failing to disclose his wife’s assets and income on his tax returns and personal financial disclosure forms
