Longest-serving USA congressman quits after sex harassment claims

Longest-serving USA congressman quits after sex harassment claims

John Conyers returned to Detroit from Washington last week and was hospitalized on Wednesday after complaining that he felt light-headed.

Until Tuesday, Conyers held the distinction as the longest serving current member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

More than 200 people showed up for a rally Monday morning in northwest Detroit to support embattled Congressman John Conyers, insisting he deserves due process regarding allegations of sexual harassment.

While Democrats appear to be taking sexual harassment allegations seriously-even those filed against congressmen with so much power and sway they were considered "untouchable"-yesterday Donald Trump endorsed an alleged child molester (and confirmed bigot/theocrat/racist) running for the Senate in Alabama".

Grubbs also claimed that Conyers "walked out of his bathroom, knowing she was in the room", when they were at his house. It featured about a dozen speakers and lasted a little more than an hour.

Ian Conyers, the grandson of Conyers's brother, plans to run for his seat, setting up an intra-family contest. "Why is it that John Conyers is the only individual to be denied due process?"

No Snoopy Christmas tree for me
Who said the tree was worth the extra cost. "If they're going to leave it up until Christmas, that's quite a span", he said. Trees can only be kept inside for a few days and must then be planted which may not work in our area.

A third woman, Deanna Maher, said Conyers made three sexual advances toward her when she worked for him in his district office in Detroit from 1997 to 2005, CNN reported last week.

"This is the first of several affidavits I will be releasing describing allegations that you sexually harassed staffers and covered up complaints", Bloom tweeted.

"John Conyers has spent over 50 years protecting the rights of everyone in this country, " the Wayne County Executive said.

Ian Conyers did not go into detail with the Times on the allegations against his family member, but said he would stand with him.

Grubbs witnessed assault on other women.

After a 15-year struggle, Conyers succeeded in establishing the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday as a federal holiday in 1986.

Ex-Trump Campaign Chairman Manafort In $11.65 Million Bail Deal
The agreement, which still needs a judge's approval, would also allow Manafort to shed a Global Positioning System tracking device.

Democratic Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota, Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas and Democratic Rep. Ruben Kihuen of Nevada have all rebuffed calls for them to step down, though Farenthold has said he won't seek re-election next year.

He also hired civil rights heroine Rosa Parks to serve on his congressional staff in his Detroit office. Right now he is the longest serving member in the House and helped found the Congressional Black Caucus.

The lawmaker was abandoned by party leadership when the seriousness of the allegations against him became apparent, and as Congress grapples with how to address the issue of sexual misconduct.

"I think that we lose our moral authority if we also don't call out those we love who have done things that are bad", said Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash.

His accuser, former aide Marion Brown, recently told NBC's "Today" show that Conyers touched her inappropriately and invited her to a Chicago hotel room to discuss business before propositioning her for sex.
