According to CBS news and other sources, Michigan congressman John Conyers has resigned in disgrace as yet another accuser surfaces, accusing Conyers of lewd ‘hand up thigh’ behavior…in church!
Conyers is endorsing his great nephew Ian Conyers to run for his seat. If the apple doesn’t fall far from the family tree, Michiganders may choose to go another direction for the peace of mind of the females in their district.
Shortly after the announcement, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, took to the House floor to read a statement from Conyers. She said he asked her to read his statement announcing his decision and that he’s notified House Speaker Paul Ryan, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder of his plans to step down.
According to a phone interview with The New York Times, the state senator was adamant that the elder Conyers was not resigning, but retiring instead. The 88-year-old Democrat is the longest-serving current House member.
