In this July 7, 2014 file photo, U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., speaks in Detroit. The longtime Michigan Congressman on Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017, denied settling a sexual harassment complaint in 2015 from a woman who alleged she was fired from his Washington staff because she rejected his sexual advances.

Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., acknowledged Tuesday that his office settled a harassment complaint involving a former staff member but said he "vehemently" denies the allegations against him.

Conyers needs to be relieved of his duties and put into adult daycare. Congress needs to stop making victims sign nondisclosure agreements. The names of the harassers should be disclosed to the public ASAP. Replace all of these men with women!

PM, agree with the halt to nondisclosure agreements required by victims. Conyers should face the ethics commission ASAP and be done with this issue in his district. His district needs solid leadership that is not tainted now.

There should also be an age limit on congress people. If you have heard Conyers speak in the last ten years it is pretty easy to see why he should not be there, he is just filling the seat that a younger more qualified person should have. Also, this is another example of the double standard, congress people are actually held to a lower standard than you or I or any other government employee when they get in trouble. Popmom, how about just putting a qualified person in there, you and others always make it about race or gender, I noticed you did not call Conyers an old black man, why not since you freely throw out the term old white men very frequently?
