Another DemRat finally bites the dust.

Former Michigan Rep. John Conyers, the longest-serving black member of Congress and founder of the Congressional Black Caucus who resigned in 2017 amid sexual harassment allegations, has died in his sleep, Fox News confirmed.

Detroit police said the 90-year-old former congressman, a Democrat, died at his home on Sunday, apparently of natural causes.

……But after a nearly 53-year career, he became the first Capitol Hill politician to lose his job in the torrent of sexual misconduct allegations sweeping through the nation’s workplaces. A former staffer alleged she was fired because she rejected his sexual advances, and others said they’d witnessed Conyers inappropriately touching female staffers or requesting sexual favors.

……In 2009, his wife Monica Conyers, a Detroit city councilwoman largely elected on the strength of her husband’s last name, pleaded guilty to bribery. The case was related to a sludge hauling contract voted on by the City Council, and she spent nearly two years in prison.

Three years earlier, the House ethics committee closed a three-year investigation of allegations that Conyers’ staff worked on political campaigns and was ordered to baby-sit for his two children and run his personal errands. He admitted to a “lack of clarity” with staffers and promised changes.

But he couldn’t survive the last scandal. An ethics committee launched a review after a former longtime staffer said Conyers’ office paid her more than $27,000 under a confidentiality agreement to settle a complaint in 2015. She alleged she was fired because she rejected his sexual advances, and other said they’d witnesses inappropriate behavior.

Conyers is typical of other Dems. Their retarded constituents keep reelecting them, and they spend entirely too much time breathing oxygen and doing damage to the country until they die.
