    A leading Democratic congressman settled a wrongful dismissal complaint for more than $27,000 in taxpayer funding after he allegedly fired the staffer because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances,” according to a new report.

    The congressman, Michigan Rep. John Conyers, is described as a serial sexual harasser who would prey on his female staffers in sworn affidavits signed by four of his former staffers. BuzzFeed News first reported the bombshell allegations and accompanying settlement after right-wing blogger Mike Cernovich provided the website with the documents.

    I do not approve of taxpayer dollars being spent to silence victims of sexual predators in government.

      Just in - Representative Conyers confirms that the payments were made, however he denies any wrongdoing - many sources are claiming that the other shoe is still dropping and that this could end his career. 
      Buzzfeed also reported that it had copies of affidavits filed by three other former employees who said they saw the longest-serving active member of Congress and civil rights legend repeatedly make sexual overtures to women staffers, requesting sexual favors and touching them.

        Greta Van Susteren says it is a crime for members of Congress to hide personal lawsuit paid with taxpayer money.  She is an attorney so she would know.   

        The Congressman is reported to have used taxpayer money to fly women into DC to hotels in an affidavit.

        I heard that the other shoe is going to drop, but I'm wondering how many more shoes.

    Monica Conyers, (wife to John Conyers), a Detroit councilwoman was sentenced to 37 months in prison for bribery.  Nine people have pleaded guilty.  At the time this article was published, prosecutors promised more charges were coming.

    “Bribery is a betrayal of trust,” an  “egregious” crime.

      Hmm... a missing digit - "May 25, 2011" - 6 years ago. Does that matter? Is it relevant  to the current topic?

          Doesn't look good for Conyers. His wife called this woman a "whore".  Sounds similar to Hillary calling Bills victim "bimbos", etc.  The war on women continues!

          2017 Court Document:  https://www.documentcloud.org/documents … on-RE.html

          House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is calling for an ethics investigation into her Democratic colleague, Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), amid new allegations of sexual misconduct with female staffers.

          Only thing is there needs to be an ethics investigation on the Ethics Committee, they have swept far too much under the rug.  We need to demand accountability and a stop to criminal behavior by elected officials and unelected bureaucrats.

    New John Conyers accuser: He showed up to a meeting in his underwear

    What? This is Congress for God sake, you can't expect members of Congress to have to remember to put pants on for work!

    John Conyers' misconduct was an open secret.   Glad he stepped aside, but he needs to resign!

    Congressman Luis V. Gutierrez, is expected to announce his resignation today.  ...  He was arrested last summer while protesting outside of Trump Towers.  ...  Don't know if he is guilty of sexual harassment or not, but I would bet he is dirty being big on amnesty for illegal immigrants.

    Top House Democrat Took $50K From Taxpayers To Keep A Former Staffer Quiet
    http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/28/top-h … fer-quiet/

    "Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva’s secret deal with a former female staffer was revealed by The Washington Times on Monday. The payout was negotiated by the House Employment Counsel, the body’s attorney, and cost taxpayers $48,395."

    Taxpayer dollars hard at work!  sad

    Meanwhile, in my own State, Democratic Sen. Al Franken has been accused of sexual harassment by four women, two of them anonymous. Franken has apologized, though he has refused to resign from office.

    And, a Democrat senator and the Republican Rep. have step down and will not run for office again.

    Things are SHIFTING!

      It is happening, swamp drain...

      Nancy Pelosi has now called on John Conyers to resign from Congress as he faces a growing list of credible sexual harassment accusations. This comes four days after she called him an "icon"...(that was a slap in the face for many). 

      Term limits are begin to look more and more like a great solution for gov officials and their trusted staff.
