U.S. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) Won’t Seek Re-election in 2018 in Wake of Sexual Harassment Claims



In the wake of multiple sexual harassment claims, U.S. Representative John Conyers (D-MI) will not seek re-election to the House in 2018. After receiving praise for being a political Icon by Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the backlash against the Congressman has been massive following the many allegations of sexual harassment. The calls for Conyers to resign have been growing. However, he states that he will not be forced out of office. Wanna bet? The pressure will become too much for Conyers to stay. The archaic, dinosaur mentality of this man thinking he can withstand the sexual harassment and assault purge is just that, prehistoric. According to his attorney Arnold Reed, “He’s not going to be forced out of office, and no one has told him he has to leave. He has not indicated he’s going to resign at this point.” The key word here is “at this point.” It is only a matter of time. No one is immune to this wave, not even members of the black caucus.

John Conyers

The controversy swirling around Michigan Rep. John Conyers has intensified this week as former staff members accused him of sexual harassment.

Sources told Local 4 that Conyers will not seek re-election for a new term in the wake of the scandal, which continues to grow.

Two sources close to the Conyers situation told Local 4′s Rod Meloni that the congressman won’t resign. It’s his intent to announce in January that he won’t run for re-election in 2018.

His attorney said the allegations are not true, but Conyers is under increased scrutiny, and his family is rallying around him.

Conyers caught a bit of a break Wednesday as the Congressional Black Caucus met in Washington and Chairman Cedric Richmond disputed the stories saying he is pushing for Conyers to resign.

Among the former staffers accusing Conyers of sexual harassment is Deanna Maher, who claimed Conyers sexually harassed her three times, including undressing to his underwear in her bedroom while she was in a nightgown.
