Conyers ‘Retiring Today,’ Endorses Son To Replace Him

<Excerpt>

Embattled Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) has told a Detroit radio station that he will not seek re-election and endorses his son John Conyers III to replace him in Congress. From CNN:

“I am retiring today. And I want everyone to know how much I appreciate the support that…incredible, undiminished support I’ve received across the years of my supporters, not only in my district but across the country as well,” Conyers said.

Conyers is facing numerous allegations of sexual assault and harassment from former female employees. Another woman spoke up last night and claimed Conyers groped her in church.

Filling a House Vacancy

He said:

“I have a great family here and especially in my oldest boy, John Conyers, III, who incidentally I endorse to replace me in my seat in congress, so we’re all working together to make this country a better one, to make a quality and justice more available for any, and with Dr. Luther king, that’s the issue that brought us in this thing together and we’ve been steadily moving forward and we’re going to continue to do so,” Conyers said.

Unlike the Senate, it can take awhile for vacancies to end in the House because it must be filled by an election. From ThoughtCo.com:

According to the U.S. Constitution and state law, the governor of the state calls for a special election to replace the vacant House seat. The full election cycle must be followed including political party nominating processes, primary elections and a general election, all held in the congressional district involved. The entire process often takes as long as from three to six months.

While a House seat is vacant, the office of the former representative remains open, its staff operating under the supervision of the Clerk of the House of Representatives. The people of the affected congressional district do not have voting representation in the House during the vacancy period.

They can, however, continue to contact former representative’s interim office for assistance with a limited range of services as listed below by the Clerk of the House.

Full circle from British royalty to liberal royalty. I thought Queen Hillary got beat.

The most recent accusations surfaced Monday and allege Conyers slid his hand up a woman’s skirt and rubbed her thighs while they sat next to each other in church during a service more than a decade ago.


Some of that holy spirit.

We want the grift to continue for the benefit of my family, so I endorse my spawn to collect the cash that's rightfully mine. I'll continue to feel up women on my own dime.

I think that there should be no children, spouse or any other close kin that should be able to run for the seat of the Senate or House when one retires. We are not a monarchy or feudal system. No 'passing on your seat" to a relative. I know we still have elections but you know is places like Chicago, Detroit, and other places it is all in the name of the candidate.

Being that Conyers is 88, I assumed his son would be in his 40’s and well established. John Conyers iii, if that’s the one he means to take over, is only 27 and kind of a ne’er do well (as my mom used to say). A partner in a hedge fund. Yeah, that’s impressive.
His cousin at least has a resume in politics.

So the old Conyers was 61-yo when the son was born huh? So obviously it was another staff of life moment with a much younger woman. Maybe she was a teen and Conyers was in his fifties when they first dates? Hmmm?

You have to attend a church service in Detroit to realize that actually isn't that big a deal. I was at a service there where people went to see the church band and sell dope during the service. Church had security on site who drove Cadillacs around the lot. Big, beautiful, modern church. Just shows that it is usually easier to find God in a shack.

I believe his wife Monica Conyers has had her own issues with corruption as well. Edit. She was sentenced to 37 months in prison on a bribery conspiracy charge, after she plead guilty. She is married to an 88 year old guy, and she was born in 1964...two years younger than I am.

So she's 35 years younger than he. So she was 26 when The Third was born. He was 61. How long did they date. Did he have sexual relations with that teenager when he was in his early fifties? Hmmm. Plot thickens. Or lengthens. Or both.

Married to a much younger woman, but that's not enough. Sounds familiar..

I think the nephew (Ian Conyers) looks more like him than his own son.

Maybe it was a simple sperm donation?
