Where is the Outrage for Conyers?

His wife got sent to Club Fed a few years back when she was a Detroit city councilperson. Back in the day, Conyers did quite a bit for civil rights, but he has been needing to go out to pasture for a long time. He has been thoroughly corrupted and needs to go. Now. (and that was before this sexual stuff).

I hope he is toast.

Turd. I got more to say later.

    He's got a lot of defenders reaching for an ear on NPR. I can't understand why?:uhm:

    Almost seems like these guys resent getting caught. Everyone else got away with it, so should I.

    It's all along time over due. I hope it sticks.

    This is from way back in 2010.

    At 61, John Conyers married his 25 year old campaign worker... Monica.

    Time for Conyers to slither away and take Franken along with him. Both of those bottom feeders have done enough damage to our beloved United States of America.

    Pelosi has changed her tune over the week, at first doubting if the allegations are true.

    She has not extended that line of thought to her opponents.

    Last night Fox News and other news outlets were reporting that Pelosi wanted Conyers to resign, and has made public statements to that effect. Maybe she had forgot that she is a champion of women's causes.

    This stuff is always partisan unfortunately. At least it is becoming slightly less partisan. Either way it seems only a matter of time before he's gone.

    Ten days ago Pelosi stated "John Conyers is an icon in our country and has done a great deal to protect women." I guess she assumed that we would have forgotten that by now.

    If he wanted to protect women he'd have put a padlock on his zipper.

    Back in 2010, Conyers was taped reading through a nudie magazine on an airplane. Class act!

    He must have unfulfilled back room obligations, the way his constituents are throwing a fit.

    Conyers has been screwing his constituents since the day he was first elected to Congress. This mess is just an extension of that behavior.

    That would work as well. I am glad that at least Conyers has been held (somewhat) accountable for his actions. If he was a conservative it would have been blown off, the victims called liars, and "fake news".
  • breamfisherbreamfisher Senior Member Posts: 13,051 Senior Member
    Conyers now says he's stepping down on Tuesday, Dec. 5.

    Wait, today's Tuesday, Dec. 5.


    And he is suggesting his son as his successor.

    He has been a man of low character from the first day he took office. He has gotten away with everything. He is disgraced now in a way that even his supporters have to admit. Had he been young enough and smart enough to continue lying his way out of everything, they would still pretend to believe him, and still be supporting him. If he had enough brain cells left to reflect on his career, he would be laughing his ass off that he got away with everything for so long. If he is stupid enough to actually believe that he has been mistreated, that's the best punishment I could have wished for him.

    Now, I want him to disappear and make way for whoever the DNC chooses to replace him, which I have no doubt will also be a worthless human being.

    I know of an X Quarterback that would be perfect as his replacement
