  • The pervies keep crawling from the swamp
  • Longest-serving current Dem congressman accused of disgusting acts, and WE paid to shut the women up
    November 21, 2017 | Samantha Chang

    The Washington, D.C., swamp is deeper and dirtier than we ever thought.

    Democrat John Conyers, the longest-serving current member of the House of Representatives, used taxpayer money to settle a 2015 wrongful termination lawsuit filed by a former employee who claims she was fired because she wouldn’t have sex with him.

    Four former staff members claim the 88-year-old Conyers — the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee — sexually harassed and touched them and other female subordinates throughout his political career, according to affidavits obtained by BuzzFeed.

    Conyers has been a congressman since 1965. Term limits, anyone?

    The unnamed woman who filed the 2015 lawsuit begrudgingly accepted a $27,000 settlement after she sued Conyers for repeatedly propositioning her for sex and then firing her after she complained.

    She said she felt pressured to accept the settlement (which taxpayers funded) because she feared Conyers would use his influence to damage her reputation and her career. “I was basically blackballed,” she told BuzzFeed. “There was nowhere I could go.”

  • Conyers’ wife Monica is no stranger to controversy either. According to the biography maintained by the Detroit Historical Society, She was elected President Pro Tempore of the Detroit City Council in 2005, then became President of the City Council in 2008.

    In January 2009 a man named Jim Rosendall, former representative for a sludge-recycling company called Synagro, pleaded guilty to paying bribes in order to get city contracts in Detroit. By that June, Councilwoman Conyers was caught up in the bribery probe. She later pleaded guilty to accepting bribes in exchange for a vote on the contract, and was sentenced to 37 months in prison.

  • They are what they are.

    Of course lib/dem voters will continue to vote for them, regardless of what is found in the closet.

    The lib/dems have created a Franken Stein monster that is now out of control.

    You've just gotta love watching this.
