Ethics Committee considers Tierney investigation

(Continued)

Republicans have repeatedly called for an investigation of Tierney.

Tierney also has his backers. Emily Bittner, national press secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, issued a statement that said the group “stands squarely behind John Tierney.”

“With the millions spent against Representative Tierney on this issue, and the rampant media attention over the last three years, it is no surprise that the Ethics Committee is reviewing the matter. Despite the fact that Rep. Tierney has never been implicated in any of his wife’s family’s legal issues, his political opponents continue these desperate and political attacks in a fruitless attempt to win this congressional seat.”
