Democratic Representative John Conyers isn’t having a wonderful week, despite the mainstream media’s attempts to downplay his woes.
Conyers was recently accused of a litany of predatory sexual behavior over the course of his entire political career, as the rest of the nation continues to follow a morally righteous movement to publicly out such wicked men and women.
What the left is particularly upset about is the fact that, as you begin to compile a list of these perverse and powerful people, that list is overwhelmingly democratic.
John Conyers certainly isn’t the first politician on the left to be accused of such heinous behavior, but he is the most notable in this latest round of allegations. Now, the once defensive Conyers is finally acquiescing to the reality of his situation and his actions, and will be making a major career change in their wake.
“Rep. John Conyers, D-Michigan, has stepped down as ranking member of House Judiciary Committee amid a congressional investigation into sexual harassment and workplace abuse allegations by his former staffers.
“‘After careful consideration and in light of the attention drawn by recent allegations made against me, I have notified the Democratic Leader of my request to step aside as Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee during the investigation of these matters,’ Conyers said in a statement Sunday afternoon.“‘I deny these allegations, many of which were raised by documents reportedly paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger,’ the statement continued. ‘I very much look forward to vindicating myself and my family before the House Committee on Ethics.’“Conyers’ decision to step down comes after former staffers accused Conyers of a variety of workplace abuses, including sexual harassment. As a result of the allegations, Conyers faces a House Ethics Committee probe. He has ‘expressly and vehemently’ denied any wrongdoing.”
