Democrat Accused Of Sexual Harassment
Congressman John Conyers is being accused of sexual harassment. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called for a formal ethics investigation into Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) following allegations he sexually harassed female staff and reached a settlement with an aide who claimed she was fired for rejecting his advances.
“As Members of Congress, we each have a responsibility to uphold the integrity of the House of Representatives and to ensure a climate of dignity and respect, with zero tolerance for harassment, discrimination, bullying or abuse,” Pelosi said in a statement Tuesday.
“As I have said before, any credible allegation of sexual harassment must be investigated by the Ethics Committee,” she said.
Pelosi is the most senior lawmaker yet to call for an ethics probe into Conyers’s behavior. She did not address whether Conyers, the ranking member of the powerful House Judiciary Committee, should step down from that position.
Conyers confirmed the existence of a settlement Tuesday but stressed he did not admit fault in the case, first reported late Monday by BuzzFeed.”
