Statements from US Representative John Tierney and his wife, Patrice Tierney, regarding allegations made by Patrice Tierney's brother, Daniel Eremian:

STATEMENT FROM JOHN TIERNEY:

 
"Today, clearly bitter at having lost his case and harboring old family grudges, Daniel Eremian made bizarre, unsubstantiated, and false comments.

"Daniel Eremian spent the last several years telling anyone who would listen, including a federal judge and jury, that he was innocent of charges the government accused him of committing. Now he is claiming both to be innocent and that John Tierney should have known that he was guilty. His claims lack both credibility and logic.

"The fact of the matter is, John Tierney knew exactly what Federal Judge Tauro, an Assistant U.S. attorney, and a supervising parole officer thought they knew when they issued a Court Order in 2002 to allow Robert Eremian to return to Antigua to continue working at Sports Off Shore, a legal internet gambling company.

"After a thorough and exhaustive investigation, Republican-appointed Federal Judge [William O.] Young said that John Tierney was 'not implicated in this in any way, shape, or form.'

"Sadly, despite John's attempts to keep things civil on the rare family occasions when Daniel was present, they did not get along," said Kathryn Prael, Tierney spokeswoman. "It is unfortunate that Daniel’s bitterness would rise to this level."
 
 
FROM PATRICE TIERNEY:
 
"It shocks and saddens me to learn that my brother would say something so utterly false about me and my husband in a moment of desperation and anger.
 
"My husband has been nothing but supportive of me during this time, especially during my decision making process in the Fall of 2010 when I took responsibility and paid a price for it.
 
"It is demeaning for my brother to infer that I am not intelligent enough, even with the counsel of a well-respected lawyer, to make my own decisions."
