    MI Rep John Conyers Sexual Harassment Payoffs

    Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.”

    Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.

    He might be entertaining but is a member of Congress considered a celebrity?

    Buzzfeed also reported that staffers were tasked with flying with flying women in for Conyers using Congressional resources!

    One affidavit from a former female employee states that she was tasked with flying in women for the congressman. “One of my duties while working for Rep. Conyers was to keep a list of women that I assumed he was having affairs with and call them at his request and, if necessary, have them flown in using Congressional resources,” said her affidavit. (A second staffer alleged in an interview that Conyers used taxpayer resources to fly women to him.)

    Former employees also said that Conyers made it very clear that if they performed ‘personal favors’ it would lead to salary increases and promotions. It was well known Conyers was having affairs with multiple female staffers. He often made sexual advances towards women and grew angry if they brought their husbands around.

    This is one of the most serious cases so far, not counting Weinstein.

    Trading sexual favors for salary increases is major CORRUPTION. And using govt. resources to fly mistresses into the city?

    Or calling a high school student out of class on the school phone, to ask her out for a date, because he was the DA? This is not a partisan issue. It is an entitled man issue.

    Using govt resources seems to be quite a lovely thing lots do. I wonder if there needs to be a list such as the taxpayer paying for golf carts or paying for homeymoon and shopping flights, and what else have we been so generously paying for?

    I am still confused. Is Conyers a celebrity or in the entertainment business? Did I miss it?

    A civil case.

    But if we are going to tell about them, can we also add this man? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...e-gay-man.html
    Not a celebrity, just another lawmaker, one rule for you and another for me. This is not anything to do with politics, it has to do with immature and entitled men.

    According to a current congresswoman, we know that there were members of both parties who paid out for harassment suits. We now know one.......Let's see if we can figure out where our 17 million tax dollars went.

    I am not sure about the corruption aspect of this. There is a congressperson in charge of dispensing these funds. I am sure if there was a crime (beyond being a pig and harassing people--not criminal, this is considered a civil settlement) the congressperson in charge would have bumped it to wherever it needed to go. Remember as the parties change a different party is in charge of the issue. Both parties are dirty with harassment which is why we only are hearing about it now.

    i also think gary condit (served in the House of Representatives from 1989 to 2003.) should be brought back in on ethic's charges he slept with an intern who ended up dead she was ready to talkabout the affair and she came up missing and later found dead he might not of killed her but he was her boss she was an intern who knows how that started but he aint inocent we need to clean up our law makers , think of all the things you and i must do to be considered law abideing and they walk around with a ticket to rockstar heaven then like conyers sends out a memo to the press that he supports womans right in the work place, im not a fool and i know your not so we need to let them know mid life crisises are not aloud on our dime is all im saying these are america's daughters black white brown and yellow being forced and discriminated against by these old priviledged creeps
