Pelosi Calls on Conyers to Resign Due to Sexual Misconduct Claims

Pelosi Calls on Conyers to Resign Due to Sexual Misconduct Claims

The employee in the BuzzFeed article spoke on the Today show this morning.

A little too late, Nancy! Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has finally called for disgraced Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) to resign due to several sexual misconduct claims. What a quick 180 considering on Meet The Press on Sunday she defended Conyers and implied she didn’t believe the victims.

Politico has reported that Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) has also said that Conyers needs to step down, just days after he lashed out at the victims.

This news comes after Conyers’ family revealed he is in the hospital for a stress-related illness. The family spokesman lashed out at Conyers’ victims along with other women who have used the #MeToo hashtag to tell their stories of assault.


Remember on Sunday that Pelosi revealed herself as a faux feminist who puts party and power above anything else, including those she claims she fights for. She refused to call for Conyers resignation and chose to gush about him to Chuck Todd, calling him an icon and insisted he has done so much to protect women!

Then a few hours later she struck a somewhat different tone on Twitter when Conyers decided to step down as ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, but still refused to call for him to resign:

But now that Conyers is in the hospital, Pelosi has called for his resignation. From Bloomberg:

“The allegations against Congressman Conyers, as we have learned more since Sunday, are serious, disappointing and very credible,’’ Pelosi of California told reporters Thursday. “It’s very sad. The brave women who came forward are owed justice. I pray for Congressman Conyers and his family; however, Congressman Conyers should resign.”

AS WE HAVE LEARNED SINCE SUNDAY? Oh, Nancy. Darling. Nice way to try to protect yourself. The BuzzFeed report was bad enough, but there have been others before Sunday! As you all know, in the BuzzFeed report, Conyers settled a wrongful dismissal claim in 2015 after a former female employee accused him of firing her for not giving into his sexual advances. The report also included claims from employees that they flew in his mistresses on taxpayer dollars. Others spoke of harassment and one male employee witnessed inappropriate touching.

A few days later, lawyer Melanie Sloan said that Conyers verbally abused her when she worked as a Democratic counsel for the House Judiciary Committee in the 1990s. She also said he showed up to a meeting with her in his underwear.

SINCE SUNDAY, ex-staffer Deanna Maher said that when she worked for Conyers, “he made unwanted sexual advances towards her, including inappropriate touching.”

As mentioned above, Clyburn has also demanded Conyers step down. Just yesterday, though, Clyburn doubted the victims simply because they are white:

Clyburn tried to prove Draper wrong by saying that the discussion had nothing to do with Conyers, but as Draper point out it had everything to do with Conyers. Clyburn also told the media on Wednesday “that lawmakers should face a different standard of judgement than film artists and journalists.”

Conyers’ lawyer Arnold Reed addressed Pelosi’s remarks at a press conference, insisting that the decision is not up to her on whether Conyers leaves or not. From CBS News:

“Nancy Pelosi did not elect the congressman, and she sure as hell won’t be the one to tell the congressman to leave,” Conyers lawyer Arnold Reed told reporters in a press conference in Detroit Thursday.

“He is not going to be pressured by Nancy Pelosi or anyone else to step down,” Reed said.

Reed said the decision is Conyers’ and Conyers’ alone, and health will be the only factor that determines whether he continues to serve.

Accuser Speaks on Today Show

The news of Conyers’ hospitalization came after a former employee told the Today show about the sexual harassment she endured from the lawmaker. From The Associated Press:

A woman who alleges she was fired because she rejected Congressman John Conyers’ sexual advances has told NBC’s “Today” show that the longest-serving member of the U.S. House subjected her to years of sexual harassment.

Marion Brown said Thursday that the Democrat propositioned her for sex multiple times over more than a decade. She says she stayed on the job because she needed to support her family and found the work rewarding.

The Associated Press left messages Thursday seeking comment from Conyers’ lawyer, who has said the 88-year-old will fight the misconduct allegations.

Attorney Lisa Bloom confirmed to the AP that Brown is the former employee in the BuzzFeed report. From Click on Detroit:

“Some of the things that he did, it was sexual harassment,” she said. “Violating my body, propositioning me, inviting me to hotels with the guise of discussing business, and then propositioning for sex. He just violated my body. He has touched me in different ways, and it was very uncomfortable and very unprofessional.”


Disgraced Rep. John Conyers (R-MI), 88, is currently in a hospital due to a stress-related illness. Family spokesman Sam Riddle refused to provide details about the illness. From Click on Detroit:

“I just spoke with Monica Conyers on the phone and we want you to know that the congressman is resting comfortably in an area hospital. He’s doing OK, as well as he can be expected for a gentleman that’s approaching 90 years of age,” Riddle said. “The congressman’s health is not what it should be and lot of that is directly attributable to this media assault.”

CBS Detroit reported that Riddle asked that everyone”pray for this congressman that has done so much for this nation.”

Conyers is the longest serving member in the House and a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus. He gained fame in the civil rights movement and was friends with Martin Luther King, Jr.

However, his reputation has taken a hit lately after BuzzFeed published a report how he settled a wrongful dismissal claim. A former female employee claimed he fired her when she refused his sexual advances.

Other accusations have surfaced, too. Riddle brushed off these women along with other women who have used the #MeToo hashtag to tell their stories of abuse:

“These serial accusers are being given way too much credibility because (hashtag) #metoo is trending. The Congressman’s contributions to the nation go far beyond any hashtags that are trending right now,” he said. “We’ve dealt with these serial accusers before. Their names are not new to the Congressman or his family.”

Johnny Boy is getting ready for a quick exit. Now who will replace him. I love the race card played by James Clyburn.

In the black community, white women are devil. It is like saying all black men are criminals. Clyburn should be censored for that. Double standards everywhere.

Waiting for the announcement of Franken going to Alcoholic rehab. I was thinking Conyers would get a pass and make it to the 2018 elections retirement party.

His replacement will likely keep the same staff, so there will not be much change in the position except for the Seniority power that he had.

    Tom Servo in reply to MarkSmith. | November 30, 2017 at 1:15 pm

    Funny thing is that now Clyburn has totally backtracked, after the race card failed since one of Conyers main accusers is a black woman, who is VERY credible.

    I think last night Clyburn got reintroduced the people who actually run the Dem party. At least I’ll give him credit for knowing how to follow orders.

    The fun part is that so far, Conyers isn’t showing any more willingness to resign than Mugabe did.

      MarkSmith in reply to Tom Servo. | November 30, 2017 at 1:25 pm

      This one is easy to see. 88 year old Senator quitting for health issues and it all goes away with a new event to take over next week.

      Not sure if all this is a Trump play to distract for the tax deal. Bottomline, I just put in an order for 9 lbs of White Cat Popcorn.

        MarkSmith in reply to MarkSmith. | November 30, 2017 at 2:14 pm

        I stand corrected by the Jacobin cat lover, I meant to say Representative. Boy if that is the worst thing I could do…..

        FYI, Trump won the election.

        I think “idiot” is a #1 on the Jacobin Truth Scale. Thanks for reading Morris.

BTW, BuzzFeed seems to lost me on credibility.

Headline today on Moore:

Roy Moore Just Blamed His Sexual Misconduct Allegations On Lesbians, Gays, And Socialists

Here is what he said:

as “false and malicious,” blaming the raft of stories about his alleged misconduct on a “conspiracy” cooked up by “Democrats pushing a liberal agenda” who have “tried unsuccessfully” to ruin his campaign.

then he says:

“They’re liberals. They don’t hold conservative values. They are the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender who want to change our culture. They are socialists who want to change our way of life and put man above God and the government is our God. They’re the Washington establishment…who don’t want to lose their power.”

The whole event can be video at

What is interesting is how CSPAN announced it:

Roy Moore Heckled at Campaign Event in Theodore Alabama
November 29, 2017

The bias is out of control and so manufactured at levels I never seen before. I think the media is loosing the battle.

I do think Moore did make a mistake blaming the liberals. It might be true, but it does sound too close to Hillary’s blaming the Right Wing Conspiracy for Bill. Bad PR move in my opinion.

There is a proposal going around Congress to get disclosure of this hush fund. However, everyone seems to be concerned only about sexual harassment. There are other reasons that could explain the payouts, but they are just as concerning. A hostile work environment can occur with someone just enjoying having power over a person.

The disclosure should include which office as well as which person did the offending, since it may the chief of staff and not the congress critter. Other info includes year, reason,amount, basis of amount (x number of months of pay),basic info on the receiver of money, such as sex, race, age, etc.

There should be an explanation of what happened afterward. For example, if the COS created a hostile environment, was that person counseled, disciplined, fired? Did the office make any changes to procedures and reporting. These are all things which should happen in running a business and government is one of the biggest businesses that we have in this country.

I read a rumor that Conyers is asking why Franken gets a pass.

Franken victims five and six step forward.

Disgraced Rep. John Conyers (R-MI), 88

When did Conyers change parties?

      MarkSmith in reply to Ragspierre. | November 30, 2017 at 2:21 pm

      So you are calling Mary and idiot. Nice move Morris. Gee, you attack Fuzzy Slippers and Kemberlee too. Is this a pattern?

        Ha! Rags also attacks Leslie and Mike. Who knows why he even reads this site anymore since we are all apparently evil “alt-right” idiots. Shrug.

          MarkSmith in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | November 30, 2017 at 9:54 pm

          We are probably the only ones that respond to Morris. FYI, if you were not around in the 70’s, here is Morris:

          I doubt that he actually knows anyone that is Alt-Right except for his mother that lives upstairs.

          It is obvious that he does not know what a racist is either.

          He still can’t figure out why he is a Jacobin, which he proves he is every time he post. Cheetos for everyone! Yea!

          Heh, actually, I am not sure why you see Rags as Jacobin, either. He’s an old school conservative who has no interest in big tyrannical government, nor in one that wields a heavy hammer on behalf of a “good tyrant.” Rags is not a radical, he’s not a leftist, and he most certainly is not a progressive loon.

          Apart from that quibble, though, I think you are right that Rags may be confused about what is “alt-right” and what is not. He has apparently sunk to the lowest level of critical thinking in charging anyone with whom he disagrees as being “alt-right.” That doesn’t make him a Jacobin, though. 😛

          His latest schtick is screeching RAAACIST at every turn, so I can see where you might be confused about him. It’s tiring enough from the left, so it’s not really my favorite tune from Rags’ latest repertoire. Yeah, yeah, we’re all RAAACISTS, blah blah blah.

          The Great Goad Cheeto is everywhere. Whatever it is:

          Ragspierre | October 28, 2017 at 8:55 pm

          “Romney winds up losing the softball election of 2012
          against obama.” If the 2012 election was a “gimme”, why didn’t your Great Goad Cheeto run and save the Republic?

          MarkSmith in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | December 1, 2017 at 1:32 am

          Well, I am applying the term as the American’s that seem to be blindly in love with the ideal of the French Revolution during Adam’s time. As Jefferson said:

          “The liberty of the whole earth was depending on the issue of the contest….” in regards to the French revolution.

          It is interesting how Jefferson used the same system that he tried to break with the Kentucky and Virginia plan. His high ideals about the French are pretty self serving and almost egotistical.

          These lovely supporters of the French Revoluton were missing the touch of reality that people were getting their heads cut off got the lovely name of Jacobins.

          Yes, they were not true Jacobins( the actual revolters), but by extension, their blind support made them Jacobins.

          Rag’s blind support of the Globalist under the disguise of being a pure conservative is just like the Americans that stupidly supported the French Revolution because of high ideals.

          But I give him too much credit since most of his posts include the basics of idiot, swirling… and now alt-right racist, or whatever. Usually when he disagrees with someone or is wrong and won’t admit it. Based on his posts on other blogs that go back to at least 2010, it is the same MO.

          So yea, he is a Jacobin by extension by his obstinate blindness. He still has not grasped the ideal that people that support or voted for Trump think he is their hero. I think most of us believe that the Uniparty needs to be busted and something total different needs to happen.

          Cruz was not that answer and it is obvious that he lacks the ability to gather support or he would have won the primary.

          Trump is our best bet to change things. Guess what?, he has. We have SC justice we like and we have almost killed the the CFPB. He has also broken the lock that Koch has on the GOP. Now we have to play with Mercer, but the money has to come from somewhere.

          The Trump election has put RINO’s on notice that a true republican democracy is in action. Rag’s doesn’t get it.

          Hmmm, still not seeing the Jacobin thing. Jefferson did waiver in light of the bloodshed (Thomas Paine didn’t), but he did hold that revolution was the way to liberty (what the Jacobins pretended to believe; heck, what almost all revolutionists pretend to believe). Americans, still fresh from their own success in our revolution, imagined that the French Revolution was going to go the same way. They believed that the French revolutionaries wanted to establish a similar free Republic. They did not.

          The difference, I think and one that Jefferson missed, was that the French Revolution was a Marxist revolution, not a republican (small “r”) one. This is no small difference. Marxist revolutions simply result in a new tyrant taking power (and in the case of the French Revolution losing it soon after), not in a free citizenry in a representative constitutional republic.

          If the revolutionary impetus for the French Revolution was “let them eat cake!” (a statement attributed, arguably incorrectly, to Marie Antoinette), then the revolutionary impetus of the American Revolution was “No taxation without representation.” The former is built on outrage that the wealthy aren’t paying their “fair share,” fostered by envy created by rampant poverty contrasted with monarchical riches, and fueled by a blind desire for “change.” The latter, however, is built on a logical cause (sure, we’ll pay taxes, but we want a say), fostered by a sense that “all men are created equal” (not, hey, let’s boot out these tyrannical, greedy monarchs and replace them with a brand-new, equally greedy tyrannical government), and fueled by a pointed desire for individual liberty and representative government.

          With our benefit of hindsight, we can clearly see the difference between the American and French Revolutions (as well as the other less-noted revolutions taking place in other countries around the same time). At the time, though, it wasn’t unreasonable for the French to look at America as a model and for Americans to look at the French (to whom we owed a great deal for their help in the American Revolution) as attempting to follow in our footsteps. That they were not doing so didn’t become evident until, quite literally, heads started rolling by the tens of thousands.

          Jacobins are not defined by their blind support; they are defined by their authoritarianism, socialist politics, and blind belief that their brutal form of government was best forced upon the people by violent revolution. Jacobins were paranoid and repressive, executing common people on the basis of suspicion and hearsay. Ultimately, though, Jacobins–then and now–think the ends justify the means, that power is achieved, to paraphrase Mao, out of the barrel of a gun (or the blade of guillotine).

          Saying that Rags is a Jacobin because he supports globalism (and I’m not sure he does, at least not in the way you imply) is sort of like saying Rags is a Nazi because he likes dogs (Hitler, after all, loved dogs). It just doesn’t make sense. Further, if being a Jacobin means that one doesn’t think of Trump as their “hero,” sign me up. I think it’s quite clear that Trump’s most avid supporters do indeed see him as a hero, but I’d guess that number is very low. I do not and will never see him as a hero by any stretch of the imagination. My heroes have morals and principles; I do not believe Trump has either. I am pleased that Trump (and his allies like Bannon) are taking on the GOP elite who long ago left us for regressive policies designed to amass more and more power and control into the executive and DC while sucking the life and relative wealth out of the middle classes. But I’m not a big fan of the “uniparty” schtick, so if not buying into that is what being a Jacobin is, again, sign me up. I want to see Trump fulfill his campaign promises on the Supreme and lesser courts, on illegal immigration (including the wall), on Israel, on trade, on ISIS/Islamic terror, on shrinking government and draining the swamp, and on jobs/taxes/the economy. I do not want to see him crowned supreme dictator who can slaughter his enemies on a whim; that would be Jacobin.

          Fussy is spewing more bullshit.

          There’s a couple of Alt-righters here, and MarkSmith is one.
          Ragspierre | November 12, 2017 at 8:44 am

          “If my daughter, age 17, were asked on a date by a 30-year-old, my concern would be that he might take sexual advantage of her.”

          If my daughter, at any point in her teens, were asked on a date by a 30-year-old, MY concern would be that he EITHER was emotionally retarded, or PLANNED on forming a relationship where he could take every possible advantage of her.

          Think of the disparity of development between two people (normal people) at those ages.

          MarkSmith | November 12, 2017 at 3:23 pm

          Think of those people who interracial marriage!

          Think of the disparity of development between two people in an interracial relationship.

          Nice try but it BS.
          Ragspierre | November 12, 2017 at 4:23 pm

          Define what you mean, please.

          Of course, the little coward never has defined what he meant, and he never will. He immediately knew he’d been smoked

          It’s simply a lie to assert I call people Alt-righters generally. I don’t.

          MarkSmith is a racist, but he’s not alone. There are several here, and they are generally tolerated to a degree I find astonishing.

          I disagree with any of the authors here as occasion warrants, including the Prof. These are not “attacks”.

          It is true that Fussy has shown herself to be a coward and a slime-merchant relative to some of the posters here, while seemingly allying with some of the most execrable and worthless commenters on these threads. There was never any need or excuse for her recent conduct.

          MarkSmith in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | December 1, 2017 at 8:36 am

          Wow, you really are a mess.

          Think of those people who interracial marriage!

          Think of the disparity of development between two people in an interracial relationship.

          Nice try but it BS.

          equals racist?!

          BTW, I was mocking you for your comment:

          Think of the disparity of development between two people (normal people) at those ages.

          but obviously you don’t get it.

          >Normal people of diverse background and ages get married every day. Your statement is BS.

          Sadly, you BS has been going on for more than 7 years. Get a clue and stop acting like a baby.

          Fuzzy, in my book you are not a coward. Not sure how Morris gets there with that, but again it is his classic MO.

          Ragspierre in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | December 1, 2017 at 9:01 am

          Obviously, my statement about a teenager and a mature (in theory) person is both psychologically and developmentally absolutely correct.

          You are a racist, and your screed (above) is a pure declaration of Alt-right “thinking”.

          But really lame attempt at lying your way out of your own words.

          Fussy’s attacks on me and others here are cowardly in that they are launched by a LI editor, and use the most despicable innuendo, outright lies, and various fallacies to discredit mere posters here.

          MarkSmith in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | December 1, 2017 at 11:11 am

          LOL Morris, you sound like a crying baby. Sorry buddy, you draw first blood on 90% of posters you attacks then scream liar, idiot,…..etc… That sounds pretty heroic to me./s

          Classic liberal whining – look mom he hit me! (after he just hit him)

          As for your personal judgemental statement:

          Obviously, my statement about a teenager and a mature (in theory) person is both psychologically and developmentally absolutely correct.

          Is BS! But then Psychology must have been your undergrad, right? Hack lawyer is now hack Psychologist. Using word “Obvious” and “absolute correct” are outright gut busters.

          Age of consent in most states is 16, so the law considers it “mature” enough no matter what the age difference is.

          Such a phony, you are dismissed now.

          Thanks, the alt-right liar:)

      Serious question: CAN Alt-right bois relate anything truthful?

      stevewhitemd in reply to Ragspierre. | November 30, 2017 at 3:58 pm

      No one is calling him a Senator.

      The “Rep.” in front of his name is the first clue. It means “Representative”, not “Senator”.

      The (R-MI) is inaccurate as to party affiliation but accurate as to the state he for which he is a representative. Sometimes the district number is appended, sometimes it isn’t. I’ve seen it both ways.

      Yes, idiots abound, Mr. Ragspierre…

        MarkSmith in reply to stevewhitemd. | November 30, 2017 at 9:40 pm

        Blow it off, it is just the cat loving Jacobin who lives in his mothers basement. He is complaining about my mistype of call “Congressman” Conyer Senator. If is one of the very few times he actually side something correct, I called him Senator, which I corrected it after my post.

        Some odd reason he now calls me a racist bastard. It really is funny, especially if he knew bastard to an adoptee is like the n word.

          stevewhitemd in reply to MarkSmith. | December 1, 2017 at 11:10 am

          I know. 🙂

          I am aware that factual corrections drive Rags a little (more) crazy. Therefore, I occasionally indulge…

          Ragspierre in reply to MarkSmith. | December 1, 2017 at 4:52 pm

          So you admit to lying, just for effect?

    See just after Hospitalize. Great catch CiLH

    Anonamom in reply to CiLH. | November 30, 2017 at 3:04 pm

    Yes, and this is the second post in which this mistake has been made. The GOP has enough REAL stupid things for which we can blame them; we don’t need to saddle them with Conyers, too!

      What was the first post? We write fast here, and it’s easy to make a mistake like this, so let us know so we can correct it.

        MarkSmith in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | November 30, 2017 at 9:57 pm

        I responded with a correction that he is a congressman. Up in the actual article under hospital, Conyer is tagged as a R-MI.

          No worries, it’s not like anyone here doesn’t know Conyers is a Representative. We know you know he’s a Rep and not a Senator; only the insecure and lame latch onto something that is clearly a mistake and not a revelation about a person’s intelligence or grasp on the subject. This kind of nit-picking over a typo drives me insane.

Clyburn said, these are all white women who’ve made these charges against Conyers.

A PR disaster. The immediate vision, in millions of imaginations across America—”Hey, where de white women at?” Clyburn stepped right in that one.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about The Swamp is that these people are really dumb. But not so dumb that they don’t manage to run things as they see fit. Which makes us even dumber for letting such lowlifes do it.

And enough of this trial by innuendo. More than enough. When you’re talking about ruining a man’s career, the work of a lifetime, you’re going to have to give us something a hell of a lot more concrete than …

He just violated my body. He has touched me in different ways, and it was very uncomfortable and very unprofessional.

Sure, I believe Conyers is a scumbutt. But I believe that because he’s a Democrat, a blatant racist, and an all-around disgrace to America. In other words, I’m already biased against him, even before we get to these current accounts of him being “unprofessional”. So in the “public opinion about serial molesters” game, I’d have to recuse myself. But I still think specific accusations are required—anything short of that is just noise.

And while I’m at it … perhaps the worst part of this particular show is that they’re still parading Pelosi out, prodding her to make some intelligible sounds and hoping that they simulate something deciperable, then wheeling her back to her box. It’s disgusting. Unfortunately there are no “senile dementia activists” to complain about this grotesque spectacle.

    Hey man, crazy pelosi is the gift that keeps on giving. Every time she opens her mouth, millions are reminded why they voted to dump her – and most of the democrats – from the House.

    She is so bad, she is not the Serena Williams, but the hillary klinton of men’s tennis.

His spokesman Sam Riddle, now there’s an interesting choice.

Riddle, who writes the column “Detroit Raw” for the Michigan Citizen, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bribery in 2009 related to his work as a the chief of staff to then-Councilwoman Monica Conyers, who also spent time in prison. Riddle was sentenced to a 37-month prison term in 2010 and released to finish the remainder of his sentence at a halfway house in late-September.

What’s amazing to me is that I find I no really care if Conyers is misidentified as a Republican.

And I don’t mean to throw any shade on the author. Minor typo no big deal. My proofing of my own post is atrocious and I majored in English Lit. Lol.

It’s just that I remember a time when I was frustrated with the media for always miss identifying the culprit as a republican when he was actually a Democrat. But today? I’m so disgusted with the party, that the air is akin to misidentifying two separate breeds of cockroaches.

They’re still cockroaches.

Error not air damn smartphone.

See what i mean?

Nancy, why not release the names and dollar amounts of congressmen and women who paid their accusers with OUR money. The Conyers can have many of his friends resign with him. That might make him feel good.
