Conyers To Retire Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

The albatross that Democrats deserve

Conyers supporters rally against racism & 'phony white liberals'

Since the allegations, both House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Paul Ryan have called for Conyers to resign.

A woman who says she worked for U.S. Rep. John Conyers for more than a decade says he slid his hand up her skirt and rubbed her thighs while she was sitting next to him in the front row of a church. The report didn't specify how Ian Conyers knew of the congressman's plans.

The younger Mr. Conyers said that despite the accusations, he believes MI voters will reward his family's work in politics by electing him.

Conyers has denied any wrongdoing.

Separately, Melanie Sloan, a lawyer who worked with Conyers on the Judiciary Committee, accused him of being "increasingly abusive" to her, behavior she said wasn't "sexual harassment" but "sexual discrimination". "If we're going to raise this unholy and unlawful guillotine, calling for the head of John Conyers, then (an effort to remove) the president of the United States" must begin, he said.

John Conyers' attorney, Arnold Reed, has said the congressman plans to speak on a Detroit radio show Tuesday morning about his political future.

Brown settled a complaint in 2015 with Conyers over the allegations, according to her attorney, the AP reported.

The albatross that Democrats deserve

The New York Times first reported Tuesday that Ian Conyers, the grandson of Conyers's brother, plans to run for the seat.

The House Ethics Committee last week opened an investigation into Conyers, 88, after he said his office had resolved a harassment case of a former staffer with a payment but no admission of guilt.

Reed has said Conyers' health would be the paramount consideration in whether he decides to step down from his House seat.

The congressman was the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee before he stepped down last week.

She also said that she saw Conyers touching and stroking the legs and buttocks of Brown and other female staffers on "multiple occasions".

Reed also spoke to the Detroit Free Press shortly after making the remark on Twitter and said that he expects the congressman to be on the program - either in the studio or by phone - and discuss whether he will remain in the U.S. House or resign in the wake of several sexual harassment allegations. Bloom previously represented Hollywood executive Weinstein.
