Rep. John Conyers is in the hospital for a stress-related illness, a family spokesperson says.
Sam Riddle, a political consultant who is acting as the family spokesperson, talked to reporters outside of the Conyers home this morning.
“The Congressman is resting comfortably in an area hospital,” Riddle said. “He’s doing OK as well as can be expected for a gentleman that’s approaching 90 years of age.”
(11/29/17) 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.[contentcards url=”http://www.wxyz.com/news/john-conyers-in-hospital-for-stress-related-illness-family-spokesperson-says” target=”_blank”] [contentcards url=”https://truepundit.com/report-rep-john-conyers-wont-seek-re-election-in-wake-of-sexual-harassment-claims/” target=”_blank”]
