Rep. John Conyers Jr. resigns over sexual harassment allegations after a half-century in Congress

https://www.washingtonpost.com/powerpost...51b277f492

From the article:
Quote:Facing multiple allegations of sexual harassment, Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) resigned as Congress’s longest-serving member Tuesday, becoming the first lawmaker to step down as Capitol Hill grapples with allegations of inappropriate behavior by lawmakers.

Conyers, who represented the Detroit area for 52 years, yielded to mounting pressure from Democratic leaders to step aside as a growing number of female former aides accused him of unwanted advances and mistreatment. He has denied wrongdoing.

From a hospital in Detroit, the 88-year-old congressman said he was “putting his retirement plans together” and endorsed his son John Conyers III to replace him. Another Conyers family member has already declared his intention to run for the seat, raising the specter of an intrafamily contest.

Asked about the harassment allegations, Conyers said his legacy “can’t be compromised or diminished in any way by what we’re going through now.”


...

Not that he didn't do enough to earn the disdain and bad news, but he is the first member of Congress to actually depart under the allegations. Once again, the racist and political double standard is in effect. In the meantime, a scummy white male repub in Alabama gets political endorsements and xtians look at him with starry eyes as the next great white hope. Angryfire

Conservatism (n.), the irrational fear that somewhere someone you think is inferior is being treated as your equal.

Now Dems are wanting Franken to quit...but the repubs are hoping for Moore and there sits DT. I think Franken would have made it over the first victim but as more came forward he doomed himself. Our loss, he is a good senator and does his homework.
