Tierney's wife got a slap on the wrist for laundering something like $7M of her brother's [indicted, but hiding in the Carribean] money.
The good congresscritter swore he knew nothing about it, including a helicopter his wife had parked in the driveway...

... and in order to find out about it (the money-laundering), I have to come to FR. MSM: crickets.
This is a huge story. I can’t believe it’s not major national news.
