Detroit Free Press calls on Conyers to resign

Downtown Detroit
The Detroit Free Press, a Gannett newspaper, is a left wing publication. They say it's time for him to go.
John Conyers Jr. has a long and complicated legacy in southeast Michigan and the U.S. Congress.

He has been an undisputed hero of the civil rights movement, a legislator of uncommon influence and power, and an aging icon whose felonious wife and sometimes-wandering pace have confounded his place in history.

But the revelations of Conyers’ alleged sexual harassment scandal and his documented use of taxpayer dollars to bury that scandal, in violation of congressional ethics rules, is less ambiguous.

It is the kind of behavior that can never be tolerated in a public official, much less an elected representative of the people.

Unfortunately the US Congress, whether controlled by Dem's or Rep's, has tolerated such behaviour for decades.

Fortunately, those days appear to be coming to an end.
