Multiple women are now accusing Democrat John Conyers of sexual harassment. One of the latest women is claiming Conyers got frisky with her while the two were in church.
But…If the accusations against Conyers “are not true,” as he said today, then why settle the cases with money from the Congressional Slush Fund? Why quit?
The House Ethics Committee last week opened an investigation into Conyers, 88, after he said his office had resolved a harassment case of a former staffer with a payment but no admission of guilt.Conyers, who was first elected to the House in 1964, is the first major U.S. politician to step down since the recent wave of sexual harassment allegations. He has denied the accusations and continued to do so in the interview on Tuesday.
“Whatever they are, they are not accurate or they are not true, and I think that they are something that I can’t explain where they came from,” he said.
If you were wrongly accused of sexual harassment…or of anything…would you quit your job in disgrace? — DB
