US Congressman Indirectly Connected to Laundering Gambling Money 23.11.2011

US Congressman John Tierney's name has been dragged through the mud due to illegal money laundering activity of his brother-in-law. Tierney’s wife Patrice spent one month is prison this year for her part in helping her brother Robert Eremian file false tax returns with the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that were based on an alleged bogus occupation as a software consultant that Eremian claimed he was working as overseas.

In fact the US authorities claim that Eremian laundered $9.63 million of the money that gamblers paid an Antigua-based online gambling website. The payments for gambling activity were rerouted via different shell companies in an effort to disguise their illegal activity.

The Federal District Court heard testimony from IRS Special Agent Sandra Lemanski that stated that from 2002 until 2010 Eremian made deposits of $4,964,654 with a US bank and that his sister Patrice managed the account for him.

In addition the IRS claims that a third sibling, Daniel Eremian, also profited from the activity and made $788,761 in profits from illegal gambling.

The federal prosecutors are expected to rest their case of racketeering and money laundering against Daniel Eremian this week. His brother Robert, the main culprit in this story is not standing trail due to his absence from the US and the authorities have declared him a fugitive.

There is no indication that the Congressman was part of the illegal operation and was re-elected even after allegations surfaced against his wife.
