detroit - An elderly member of the American House of Representatives ended up in hospital with stress complaints on Thursday after several former female staff members accused him of sexual harassment. It is the 88-year-old John Conyers, the longest-serving Congressman in Washington.
On Thursday morning, one of the women reported on the 'years of sexual intimidation' in a program on national television. She was invited by the politician several times to have sex with him. She stated that she had to continue working for Conyers because of her family.
According to the spokesperson of the Conyers family, the ladies get too much attention with their complaints because of the global #metoo, the discussion about sexual harassment. 'The Congressman's contributions go much further than any hashtag that is now popular,' said the spokesperson.
The leader of the Democrats in the House of Representatives does not agree with that. Nancy Pelosi called her party colleague Conyers to grab his bags and resign.
