Sen. Sean Nienow
The U.S. government filed a motion Tuesday seeking a $748,000 default judgment against state Sen. Sean Nienow over an unpaid small-business loan. The Small Business Administration sued Nienow, a Republican from Cambridge, in January. They said he and his wife Cynthia signed for a $613,000 loan in 2009 but stopped making their payments about 18 months later.
A state senator who’s accused of failing to repay a Small Business Administration loan says the case is not related to his legislative duties.
