When you’re one of America’s kookiest Members of Congress, it helps to have your wife on the Detroit City Council. Especially if you want an international tunnel named after you.
Far-left Democratic U.S. Congressman John Conyers’ wife Monica, who sits on the Detroit City Council, introduced a resolution to rename the Detroit half of the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel to “John Conyers Jr. Tunnel.” Monica Conyers is the same allegedly drunk woman who assaulted and punched another woman at a Christmas holiday party at a Detroit dive, after Ms. Conyers repeatedly tried to get the woman’s companion to buy her a drink. She gave the woman a black eye.
After hearing an important international passage may be named after John Conyers, somebody buy us a drink.
Predictably, the People’s Republic of the Detroit City Council–which also voted for Black only business enterprise zones called “African Town”–voted 8-0 in favor of the Conyers Tunnel resolution.
“He is truly a great man” said Councilwoman JoAnn Watson. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that Conyers, according to charges under investigation by the House Ethics Committee, forced his federal tax-paid Congressional staff to work on Watson’s campaign to get election to the Detroit City Council.
Puh-leeze. Conyers record is anything BUT that of a “great man.” He:
* forced a Congressional staffer of his to serve as his sons’ baby sitter, cook, butler, maid, chauffeur, etc., while his wife/their (artificially inseminated?) mother (Monica Conyers, who introduced the Conyers Tunnel resolution) went to law school in another state. Your tax dollars paid for that.
* scandalously withheld Thanksgiving turkeys meant for poor people. The turkeys were not disbursed as Conyers had promised. But when the media called him out on it on what happened to the turkey money, Conyers finally and belatedly gave out the turkeys.
* took thousands in campaign money from Saddam Hussein’s U.S. agent and oil-for-food scammer, Shakir Alkhafaji.
* appeared in Michael Moore’s “Fakenheit 9/11,” denouncing our country.
* is a tireless advocate of Islamo-fascism and the ACLU.
* has one of the most wacked out, far-left voting records in the U.S. Congress.
Remember, this is the man that the Dems want as House Judiciary Chairman if and when they overtake the Republicans. With a record like this, if John Conyers gets a tunnel, what’s next–Benedict Arnold Airport? How about Cynthia McKinney Metro Park?
If the resolution is signed by Detroit’s wacked out Pimp Daddy Mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, at least there will be something appropriate about naming the tunnel after John Conyers.
Like all of his absurd ideas and behavior, it’s under water.
