WASHINGTON, D.C. – A long-time Democratic Congressman from Michigan says he will quit his post amid scathing sexual harassment claims.
On a radio talk show Tuesday morning, Congressman John Conyers, Jr. announced on Praise 102.7 Detroit that he begins his retirement starting today and that he is endorsing his son John Conyers, III for his position.
“My legacy can’t be compromised or diminished in any way,” Conyers claimed.
In recent weeks, multiple women have brought forward allegations of sexual harassment or misconduct by Conyers. It was even reported that he showed up to a meeting in his underwear.
