Pelosi Calls on Conyers to Resign

Thursday at her weekly press briefing Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called on Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) to resign as he is facing several allegations of sexual misconduct.

Pelosi said, “The allegations against Congressman Conyers, as we have learned more since Sunday, are serious, disappointing, and very credible. It’s very sad. The brave women who came forward are owed justice. I pray for Congressman Conyers and his family and wish them well. However, Congressman Conyers should resign.”

She continued, “As dean, Congressman Conyers has served our Congress for more than five decades and shaped some of the most consequential legislation of the last half-century. However, zero tolerance means consequences. For everyone, no matter how great the legacy, it is no license to harass or discriminate. In fact, it makes it even more disappointing.”
