Analyst: Gambling Accusations To Be Dominant Issue Of Tierney Campaign 04:40

This article is more than 8 years old.

Congressman John Tierney is calling his wife's two brothers liars for saying Tierney was aware of their illegal gambling ring.

Tierney made the comments during a press conference he held Tuesday in an attempt to, as he put it, "set the record straight" on the questions that have been pestering his reelection campaign.

We heard Tuesday from WBUR's Democratic analyst Dan Payne about Tierney's challenges in dealing with his brother-in-law's allegations. For a different perspective, WBUR's Republican analyst Todd Domke joined WBUR's Morning Edition Wednesday to discuss the state of Tierney's campaign in the wake of the recent controversy.

This program aired on July 4, 2012.
