Mo’ Mrs. Conyers Stooopid: Detroit Cops Restrain Her, Chauffeur Her Son to Swanky Prep School in ‘Burbs

By Debbie Schlussel
When Monica Conyers–the crazed wife/beard of Commie Congressman John Conyers–became the President of the Detroit City Council, she promised the media that she’d learned her lesson and would start behaving like an adult. She also said she would tone down her behavior.
If you believed her, I have some land under the Detroit River to sell you (and it’s not in the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, which she wanted to name after hubby John).
To those who were realists, we weren’t disappointed. It’s not just that Mrs. Conyers apparently took bribes and is a subject of an FBI investigation. She’ll likely be indicted for the Synagro sludge contract scam. But the Missus is in the news, today, for entirely new, unrelated different negative stories.

John & Monica Conyers

First, there’s the fact that Conyers improperly used a Detroit-owned car and enlisted Detroit Police Department cops chauffeur her son to Cranbrook, the Detroit area’s swankiest private school and one of its most expensive. The last time Cranbrook was in the news was in the ’80s, when it came out that Cranbrook officials drew bagels on the applications of prospective Jewish students, in order to keep Jewish enrollment down. The Detroit Newsistan doesn’t name the school, but it’s Cranbrook. Previously, the Conyers forced one of his Congressional staffers to serve as cook, butler, and chauffeur to Cranbrook for their two sons.
Monica Conyers’ chutzpahdik response to this improper use of Detroit city property and personnel to chauffeur her kids 15 miles outside the city to fancyland: “People are jealous.” Damn right, they’re “jealous.” Maybe they’re jealous that they don’t get taxes to fund a private chauffeur and town-car to their kids’ school.
Then, there’s Mrs. Conyers latest tantrum, at which security had to restrain her. She accused a councilman of having cancer and exhibited assorted other outrageous behavior:

Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers had to be restrained during a confrontation last week with Councilman Kwame Kenyatta in which she hurled insults at Kenyatta about his hearing aid, health and education.
Kenyatta would not discuss who said what except to deny Conyers’ assertion in the argument that he has cancer and to say he never raised his voice. . . .
Sources who described the incident on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter said the Feb. 4 argument escalated after Conyers called Kenyatta stupid, following his insistence that she submit in writing her request to cut his budget.
When Kenyatta asked her what she said, Conyers responded he needed to learn how to talk to a woman.
Kenyatta shot back that when he was with a woman, he would do so. That prompted Conyers to yell at Kenyatta that he was stupid, citing his lack of a college degree, to tell him he “can’t hear” — a dig at his hearing aid — and to try to rub in his face rumors that Kenyatta has cancer.
As at least one council staffer and a council security officer restrained Conyers while she tried to walk toward Kenyatta, he retorted that he hears just fine, doesn’t have cancer and told her she needs help. Kenyatta made a report with the council’s security unit about the incident, which took place in his office.

In the past, I told you about Mrs. Conyers’ many other insane exploits in instability, including her shouting match calling then City Council President Kenneth Cockrell, “Shrek”, and screaming tirade at hotel management at a Denver hotel for not having giant suites for her during the Democratic National Convention.
The good news in all of this is that Kenneth Cockrell, who is now Mayor of Detroit, will not win election to this position, which he filled when Mayor Kwame “The Kingpin” Kilpatrick resigned. If he loses–and it looks like he will–he will return to the Detroit City Council President position, and she will just be a Councilwoman. Sadly, she’ll still be a Councilwoman.
Happily, she’ll continue to provide me with humorous, clownish behavior for the immediate future, regardless.
Here’s a video reminder of the esteemed Monica Conyers, comedy star:


Do it, baby.

“Da flo’s out der….Be respectful, you may not do dat at home but you gonna do dat up in here…”
Man oh man, and to think she is actually an elected official that cannot even speak proper English.
I work in the city of Detroit, pay city taxes, but yet I have no say in who runs our great city. I have always argued that is taxation without representation, but that’s another subject.
Dis women don shown no respect up in here to one of the only members of City Council that is trying to clean up the tarnished image that she is culpable in creating.
I’m not a bookie. If I was, I would give you 2 to 1 odds that the city re-elects her come re-election time.

Debbie you sure she wasn’t the one who said “Shut up, Bitch” in the theater? Can anyone tell me why Detroit was not rated the worst city to live in? I guess if the football team isn’t worth watching, city council might be a great place entertainment. Pass the popcorn please.

Well, as she said on the video, she’s the FIRST one to talk. No doubt about that. Politics always seems to attract the worst elements these days. Never thought I would sympathize with a Detroit politician with the last name Cockrell, especially when considering his father, but who could predict?
Self-indulgent behavior from people who never grew up.

She is a bad cliche (are there any good cliche’s) and an embarassment. At least she didn’t further make an ass out by discussing someone having Cancer of the breasteses or some other ignorant venacular.
What was really funny was the young lady named Kierra Bell who pwned Ms Conyers in an exchange a while back about her (Conyers) for calling a Councilman Shrek.
Good ol Detroit. It’s now the laughingstock of the Midwest and a joke. South-Central Los Angeles has a sister city in Michigan.

Does Michigan HAVE to be part of the US? Does that state have any redeeming qualities? Which is worse: Chicago or Detroit?

What a sickening duo are the Conyers’. The other big gaff that is lacking from this list is when poobah congressman John Conyers had his staff doing all kinds of nonsense on an election day–paid and on the clock–paid by the government to ….. campaign and get out the democrat vote.
Yes, the same Conyers, who is a wheel on the House Judiciary committee, who regularly called for the impeachment of Bush. What an a–hole. What a pair of a–holes.
Debbie, didn’t you point out once that Conyers marriage is for show anyhow–that Conyers is really gay? I’m asking–because I thought I read that on your blog–excuse if I’m wrong.

WOW!Detroit is an “Amazing” Place.
How did this Lune become President of the Detroit City Council any way?
Is the HAND of Dearbornistan in there?
Her sending her kids to the Elite Suburban Private School is BAD on so many levels.
NOTE*Cranbrook ,the Anti-Semitic Private School in a place that has been the most Anti-Semitic in the U.S., Metro Detroit, Home of Henry Ford, Father Coughlin,and TODAY’S Islamonazis and their Dearborn Power Base.

She reminds me of Kimberly Williamson Butler of New Orleans:

Sorry, there isn’t much which is still posted about her. But she was quite a character, quite a mediocre individual, who was a “legend in her own mind”!

This bitch is nothing but a ghetto rat! It amazes me that people vote this kind of trash into office. Then they want to know why no one respects them. Hey maybe after King Hussein gets done we can vote in Kwame Pickpocket to be the next president. What’s a few million here and there and lying while under oath. I think that is now a requirement to be elected!

lexi,
“Does Michigan HAVE to be part of the US? Does that state have any redeeming qualities?”
I always appreciate your posts and humor. If you knew me personally, you’d know there was at least one redeeming quality in Detroit;)
We are embarrassed up here, but please keep the comments directed to those causing the problems. I know you’d like the working people, especically me!
