Weekend Discussion: Tierney Election Impact? [Poll]

Will Congressman John Tierney's family legal issues impact the 2012 District 6 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 impact the congressional election and affect people's votes? Leave a comment and discuss.
