From the beginning, I’ve been writing about deposed, federally-convicted Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers. Whether it was her infantile tirades at City Hall during City Council meetings or her fights with hotel security and police because she didn’t like her suite at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, I’ve told you about this embarrassment who is married to far-left Congressman John Conyers.
Today, Monica Conyers was sentenced to just over three years in prison for accepting at least $69,000 in bribes she solicited from various parties, including Synagro, who bought her votes or other forms of advocacy. But Conyers isn’t happy with the lax sentence and now says she wants to withdraw her plea, but the judge won’t let her. So, she’s appealing. Good luck with that.
The thing is, while Mrs. Conyers will do time in the slammer, her husband–who reversed his positions on contracts in Detroit after she accepted the bribes and intervened on behalf of the bribers–isn’t at all touched by this scandal. And you have to ask yourself why? The investigation began under the Bush administration and is finishing up under Obama. But neither Justice Department seems to want to pursue the America-hating Congressman. Why?
What did John Conyers know and when did he know it? If this were any other political couple, would hubby get away with it? Don’t bet on it.
Watch this flashback video to remember the, um, “good time” of Monica Conyers . . .
Do it, baby!
