The Globe reports that "The wife of US Representative John F. Tierney became a convicted felon yesterday, pleading guilty to four counts of aiding and abetting the filing of false tax returns for her brother, a federal fugitive who has been indicted on charges of illegal gambling and money laundering."

Tierney, of course, has an election coming up. Should he be held at all responsible for his wife's crimes, or would that unfairly lump the two together? The Globe editorial board just wrote that Tierney should publicly answer questions about his wife's crimes.

Agree? Disagree? Sound off below and we'll feature the best comments in a post later on.
