Congressman John Conyers has made a career out of making wild allegations against Republicans. He is also seen as a bully by some of his opponents. Yes, this is the same John Conyers who threatened to go after some of former President George W. Bush’s advisers. Today, Conyers is faced with the possibility of seeing his wife being hauled off to the clink for up to five long years!

Monica Conyers on this day, stands convicted of conspiring to commit bribery. Mrs. Conyers is the Detroit City Council President Pro Tem. According to the FBI, Monica Conyers is alleged to have benefited from voting in favor of the city of Detroit signing a contract with Synagro Technologies. Prior to allegedly taking a bribe by being the deciding vote in granting Synagro, a sludge hauling company, a hefty contract with Detroit, Mrs. Conyers was a vocal critic of the contract.

FBI Special Agent in Charge, Andy Arena warned crooked Detroit officials that, “This is not the beginning and it is certainly not the end, folks. We are coming after you.”

Now the question that is being asked is should Monica Conyers step down from her post as Detroit City Council Pro Tem? Attorney Bill Goodman who represented the City Council in its quest to have convicted felon, and former Detroit Mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, “Another Democrat” kicked out of office, said that City law says a council member who is convicted of a felony must step down, “The minute he or she is convicted.”

At this writing, Mrs. Conyer has not submitted a letter of resignation. Court documents show that Conyers, the wife of the powerful Democrat, John Conyers, accepted two cash bribes from a Synagro consultant. Conyers is alleged to have been caught on videotape accepting the cash which was contained in envelopes.

Court records alleged that Mrs. Conyers pocketed “Thousands of dollars.” However, there is an open dispute as to how much money the now disgraced legislator actually received. This woman who is nothing but another arrogant Democrat, faces 31 to 60 months in jail. Her length of sentence will depend on just how much money this convicted felon took.

No sentencing date has been set!

It is interesting that while the Government run media is focused on South Carolina Governor, Mark Sanford, and his marital difficulties, these “Democrat Activists,” have not touched this story, which to this writer is just as important as the Sanford conundrum!

In the meantime, Congressman John Conyers office released this tear jerker of a statement:

” This has been a trying time for the Conyers family. With hope and prayer, they will make it through this as a family. Public officials must expect to be held to the highest ethical and legal standards. With this in mind, Mr. Conyers wants to work towards helping his family and the city recover from this serious matter”

Pardon me, while I reach for a kleenex. Hey John-Boy, there is a universal law. Maybe you have heard about it.

What goes around comes around!

The judge in this case can show the world that no one, not even the powerful Monica Conyers is above the law, by sending this thief to the slammer for the maximum term of, “Five Years.”

Probation would be a miscarriage of justice!

    Looks as if Mr. Conyers knew more about what was going on with his wife then he let on! If this investigation keeps going there will be more charges I think!
