It’s the end of a very short, but highly entertaining, era: this morning, Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers pleaded guilty to Conspiracy to Commit Bribery.
Detroit City Council President Pro Tem Monica Conyers pleaded guilty this morning to conspiring to commit bribery and is free on personal bond.
U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn said, “The defendant now stands convicted.”
The one count of conspiring to commit bribery is punishable for up to five years in prison.
Conyers is still on the Detroit City Council, but she’ll likely soon resign or be booted off due to the conviction.
Did I mention that she’s the wife (and some say, beard) of Communist U.S. Congressman John Conyers?
Well, I’ve mentioned it in the couple of years I’ve been writing on this site about her many antics.
I’ll miss her. She provided non-stop comedy relief in videos like this one:
Do It Baby . . . Do It.
