Now that the heat has gotten too excruciating for US Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI), because of a landslide of sexual harassment allegations, the longest serving member of Congress is resigning. But it gets better. Nepotism is alive and well in the Democrat Party.
It appears that Mr. Conyers is endorsing his son, John Conyers III (or John Conyers Jr. Jr.) to fill his vacant seat. A greater display of nepotism in federal politics has seldom been witnessed.
Interestingly, John Conyers Jr. Jr. is not only the offspring of a man who has been pressured out of office before his term's end because of his inappropriate sexual demeanor, he is also the son of a woman who served a 3-year prison term on a political bribery conviction.
Monica Conyers, Congressman Conyer wife, spent 3 years in prison after being convicted on a bribery charge after she admitted to taking bribes to support a Houston company's contract to treat sludge in Detroit while she served as a councilwoman.
How can the people of Michigan, regardless of how cobalt blue they may be as Democrats, continue to support this family for public office? Maybe John Conyers Jr. Jr. is an honest guy, but the sins of his mother and father have to stain him politically.
