Default Conyers Resigns Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., has sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi informing them of his decision to step down from Congress as of Tuesday, amid allegations of sexual misconduct leveled by multiple women.

Conyers, 88, has denied the allegations, saying Tuesday that "they are not accurate; they are not true." But amid an inquiry by the House Ethics Committee following revelations of a settlement two years ago for wrongful dismissal of a female employee, Conyers is stepping down.

At least we know the topic of every story and opinion piece that Fox News will be running until the evening of December 12th.

I'm just sort of boggling at the fact that Conyers has been in Congress since I was 3 years old.

In that sense, it's sort of like Vin Scully retiring.....
