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!

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.
House Ethics Committee begins investigation of Rep. John Conyers over accusations of sexual harassment.
