The pervies keep crawling from the swamp
Longest-serving current Dem congressman accused of disgusting acts, and WE paid to shut the women up

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.”
