Nancy Pelosi Defends John Conyers In The Most Absurd Way Possible
Pelosi was on Meet The Press this morning, and when asked about the accusations against Rep. John Conyers, she defended him just as you would expect… It was absolutely absurd!
“John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women – Violence Against Women Act, which the left — right-wing — is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that,” she added. “But the fact is, as John reviews his case, which he knows, which I don’t, I believe he will do the right thing.”
Conyers used YOUR tax dollars as hush money to cover up his “indiscretions.”
Conyers’ office recently confirmed issuing a settlement of $27,000 to a former staffer who says she was fired for resisting the congressman’s sexual advances. Conyers has acknowledged the payout, which he said amounted to a severance package, but he denied the allegations about what it was for. —The Washington Post
WOW … Well, Nancy Pelosi there’s your icon!
WASHINGTON — Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., stepped down as the ranking Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee on Sunday, following sexual harassment accusations.
The 27-term congressman said he denied the allegations, but was stepping down because of the ongoing House Ethics Committee investigation.
