Michigan Rep. John Conyers, one of the most powerful Democrats is the one in the “hot chair” this time. Conservative Tribunal, brings the story.
In a report from BuzzFeed was stated that Conyers “repeatedly made se*ual advances to female staff that included requests for se*ual favours, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands se*ually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public.”
The report also stated that the “documents also reveal the secret mechanism by which Congress has kept an unknown number of se*ual harassment allegations secret: A grinding, closely held process that left the alleged victim feeling, she told BuzzFeed News, that she had no option other than to stay quiet and accept a settlement offered to her.”
“In this case,” BuzzFeed reported, “one of Conyers’ former employees was offered a settlement, in exchange for her silence, that would be paid out of Conyers’ taxpayer-funded office budget.”
When the alleged worker was asked she said: “I was basically blackballed. There was nowhere I could go.”
Mike Cernovich is the one who obtained the documents, a media activist and conspiracy theorist who is also a Donald Trump supporter. In the report for BuzzFeed, he said he gave the documents to BuzzFeed News for vetting and further reporting, and because he said if he published them himself, Democrats and congressional leaders would “try to discredit the story by attacking the messenger.”
Another testimony, now from a male staff member from the House of Representatives, says that an worker aproached him, as a cry for help, saying she was se*ually harassed by Conyers, and that “this conduct included inappropriate touching as well as request(s) for se*ual favours.”
