Embattled Rep. John Conyers to step down Tuesday

Embattled Rep. John Conyers to step down Tuesday

Politicians and community leaders Monday demanded the end of the calls for Congressman John Conyers Jr.to resign amid accusations of sexual harassment by former staffers.

"It will be Congressman John Conyers who decides what it is he is going to do".

State Sen. Ian Conyers (D-Detroit), a great-nephew of the retiring Conyers, also has said he will seek to fill the seat.

The 88-year-old civil rights leader and longest-serving member of the House announced what he referred to as his "retirement" on Detroit talk radio, while continuing to deny allegations he groped or sexually harassed women who worked for him.

Capcom Finally Announces Mega Man 11 For Modern Platforms
Mega Man 11 will be more than just a rehash of previous iterations and be completely updated for today's technologies. Second, Capcom confirmed that the Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2 would be coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2018.

Conyers' endorsement of his son's candidacy is made even more complicated by the fact that Conyers' grand-nephew, MI state Senator Ian Conyers, 29, also recently announced he will be running for Conyers' seat.

"We have one commonality today and t is called due process", said the Rev. Wendell Anthony, president of the Detroit chapter of the NAACP, according to Kathleen Gray of the Detroit Free Press.

Conyers told Mildred Gaddis he's confident in his legacy, despite multiple sexual harassment claims against him, and that his legacy will continue through his children. She said he asked her to read his statement announcing his decision and that he's notified House Speaker Paul Ryan, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder of his plans to step down.

Jerrold Nadler, who replaced Conyers when he stepped down from his leadership role on the House Judiciary Committee, said he was "saddened" by the developments. "We're calling for due process for every citizen, which also includes Congressman John Conyers by the same body which is supposed to uphold and defend due process". The committee's website lists Conyers still as a member.

Conyers, who was first elected in 1964 and went on to become a founding member in 1971 of the Congressional Black Caucus, easily won re-election previous year to his 27th term in the heavily Democratic district in and around Detroit. Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct by nine women, several of whom were teenagers at the time, and one of whom was just 14. "Systemic change is urgently needed so no other women have to endure the retaliation, secrecy and delays my client Marion Brown and others experienced".

"This goes with the issue of politics". "They are not true and I think they are something that I can't explain where they came from".

Attorney Arnold Reed speaks with the media outside Democratic Congressman John Conyers home in Detroit, Michigan, on December 1, 2017.
