More Allegations Bring Democrats To Demand Serial Sexual Deviant John Conyers’ Resignation
Long-hidden scandals involving deviant, immoral behavior from The Swamp just keep surfacing…
Now, John Conyers finds himself under fire again when allegations by a former staffer were leveled against the longest-serving incumbent in Congress.
The former staffer said the Michigan congressman partially undressing in front of her in a hotel room and inappropriate touching, prompting more calls for the longest-serving member of the House to resign.
Deanna Maher, 77, who ran a Michigan office for Conyers from 1997 to 2005, told The Associated Press Tuesday that the first incident occurred in 1997 during a three-day Congressional Black Caucus event in Washington, which she said she “felt honored” to attend.
Maher said while she was in the bedroom of a hotel suite, Conyers walked in, called room service and ordered sandwiches.
“I had my nightclothes on,” said Maher, who now lives in the Holland area in western Michigan. “I was just scared to death. I was married at the time. He sat in the bedroom taking his clothes off. I didn’t say anything and he didn’t say anything.”
Nothing happened between them, she added.
“He didn’t go naked. He was down to his skivvies,” Maher said. “He sat there eating sandwiches and then he stormed out and slammed the door. I was so embarrassed and ashamed of myself for being so stupid. I needed a job.”
“He didn’t put his hand on me, but the message was loud and clear,” she said.
The questions remains, why would she wait so long to report this, and more importantly, why would she continue working for someone who made such unwanted advances.
The latest revelation came on a day Conyers met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus and the group’s chairman said afterward that a decision on resigning was up to Conyers, hardly a vote of confidence for the 88-year-old lawmaker, reports NBC Connecticut.
“That’s a personal decision for him and his family,” Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., told reporters. Asked if he thinks Conyers will make the right decision, Richmond said, “He always does.”
Conyers was first elected in 1964 and was one of the founding members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said he met with Conyers on Tuesday to let him know he was concerned for him.
“I think he should go home and talk to his constituents and listen to them and make a decision based on that,” Thompson said.
Some of the Detroit Democrat’s House colleagues are calling for him to step aside.
Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice of New York was joined Tuesday by Rep. Pramila Jayapal from Washington state in calling for Conyers to step down.
The House Ethics Committee is investigating allegations against Conyers, who has denied the accusations and refused to resign. He announced Sunday that he would step aside as the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.
Separately Tuesday, the House’s top Democrat said in a letter to the ethics panel that it should move quickly with its inquiry.
Democrat lawmakers are among a number of prominent leftist Democrat men in politics, entertainment and journalism who have been accused of sexual misconduct in the wake of explosive allegations against former Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein.
Also last week, Rep. Joe Barton apologized for a nude photograph leaked on social media.
Maher’s allegations against Conyers initially were reported by The Detroit News. She said there were other incidents involving unwanted touching in a car in 1998 and unwanted touching of her legs under her dress in 1999.
Conyers was driving the two to a Detroit-area airport in 1998 when he began touching her leg, Maher told the AP.
“He was feeling me up,” she said. “He was an older guy, a terrible driver and all over Interstate 75. He was stopped by a (Michigan State Police) trooper.”
Conyers’ attorney, Arnold Reed, said Maher’s allegations are uncorroborated and Conyers denies wrongdoing.
“John Conyers has always said he’s not guilty of harassing these women,” Reed said. “Any woman or man that is violated, that’s unacceptable — completely unacceptable. By the same token, a person has right to protest his innocence. This is what we call due process. Mr. Conyers wants to be cooperative and will be cooperative with any investigation.”
Hopefully he’ll be as cooperative as he wanted his victims to be, confess his perversion, and resign in shame.
