BREAKING: Rep. John Conyers’ Wife Sentenced to Three Years in Prison

By Debbie Schlussel

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!

She is a pathetic example of what the leadership in Detroit has been, is and will always be. It is my guess that she will be granted her appeal and won’t serve a day. Kilpatrick isn’t being held accountable either. While he lives in the lap of luxury in Texas, many of us here are barely making ends meet.

Other than a few Republicans who committed highly visible and understandable offenses, I think that most politicians can avoid jail; Spitzer comes to mind along with scores of others. There really is a multi-tier justice system, one for us and one for them.

And of course there’s always Billy and Hilly.

just more TNB of which there seems to be a lot of.

Ha, ha, ha, … Couldn’t have happened to a person. I definitely agree about the sentence being too lax. Three years isn’t nearly enough time for Monica to get aquainted with her female version of Bubba.

    I meant to write … Couldn’t have happened to a ‘nicer’ person.

      Dude, unfortunately, she’ll probably get treated like a celebrity. In Michigan prisons the system is out of whack big time. She will, however, probably get a girlfriend for a while. It will be by choice though.

Can we give michigan to Canada? No give backs

rkeo on March 10, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Please don’t give us Michigan….our laws are too lax as it is!

    Chuck on March 10, 2010 at 8:13 pm

Awesome news!

It is good that Monica Conyers is finally facing some prison time for her misdeads. Of course, one has to question how Mr. Conyers could not have ben aware of his wife’s misdeads. I suspect that Mr. Conyers will divorce Monica after a decent interval. She has served her purpose as a lightening rod and distraction, and now has achieved the status of spoiled hamburger politically.

Conyers and Randle embroiled in scandal. They walked the picket lines during the civil rights movement only to realize they’re dream and forget about everybody else. African-American politicans should realize by now when its time to through politicos under the bus they are the first to go. Sure theres Billy and Hilly, Fienstein, Pelosi Boxer, Dodd. Where are the indictments for them. Nothing good comes out of Detroit except maybe Matt Stafford.

ZENN LA on March 10, 2010 at 9:48 pm

Thanks for pointing out the John CONyers link. She should be in prison for longer than 3 years. I heard the judge had her loot–a pair handcuffs and an orange jump suit.

why is america so threatened by a strong asertive black woman?Although we have a black president there is still so much discrimination that has to be overcome.
a perfect example is although black politicians are in the miority we are the overwhelming majority charged by the white man for so called crimes.
I blieve these attacks on the black man are to slow down the reperations we so richly deserve for the centuries of slavery which built this country.
Whattype of world will my neice who was just born, little baby obamichelle have to live in?

prince shakazulu mohammad on March 11, 2010 at 9:27 am

    “why is america so threatened by a strong asertive black woman?”

    Does being a strong and assertive black woman mean that it is alright to engage in bribery? Do white people who engage in bribery “get away with it”? Your remarks are very insulting to honest black people. Also, she was hurting the City of Detroit, which is predominantly black by what she did. Take your racist garbage and peddle it elsewhere. Finally, you really need to work on your literacy. It is pathetic.

    Worry01 on March 11, 2010 at 12:54 pm

Hey princess – your fantasy land is laughable. I don’t owe black people squat in reperations. In fact, I may be owed money by black people who are on the public dole in one way or another. I left home right after graduating high school with just the shirt on my back and have never taken money from the gov’t in this way, but I have paid more than my ‘fair share’ to all of the recipients of our gov’t handouts using the money payed by all of us hardworking taxpayers.

Jarhead on March 11, 2010 at 10:40 am

    The main thing is that Monica really was just screwing over other blacks through her actions. Detroit is predominantly black and is run by blacks, so the white racism angle makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    Worry01 on March 11, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    you left home from a house and with a shirt that was made and built by someone of color’s slavery,that is guaranteed.
    At last the chickens have come home to roost although it may have taken centuries the phroposey has been fulfilled.
    Many whites are frightened by a black led america but the numbers are small,Obama won by a landslide.
    Step aside and let him lead this country to is destiny.
    Although I do not belive in the somewhat extreme views of there is a shift in the white man and womans view of black leadership.
    What comes around goes around.
    I agree GM could turn this country around under Obamas reperations plan.

I heard that Rep. Carolyn Kilpatrick has been called to testify by the grand jury investigating Detroit corruption. It sounds like the investigation is making some headway.

That being said, Mayor Bing has his work cut out for him trying to turn Detroit around. Gack! I don’t envy him.

“Prince Shakazula Mohammed”! Reminds me of “Shabbias K. Morton”, played by Eddie Murphy, on SNL…

also reminds me of the time I worked in a warehouse and wouldn’t help some gentlemen of African descent smuggle some items out (i.e steal stuff), so they called me “racialist”, whatever the hell that means… 😉

Doda McCheesle on March 11, 2010 at 1:16 pm

Um…guys…before you get all riled up, it’s obvious that this Shakazulu Mohammed character is a parody thrown up on the board to get the natives restless. The name itself, the subjects brought up, the rampant misspellings, and the “little baby obamichelle” remark are dead giveaways. Of course, some of these same folks thought the Onion parody of President Obama that Ms. Schlussel had up the other day was real also…

I have yet to see any Black person on any site defending Mrs. Conyers. She is yet another criminal politician who has done nothing for her constituents.

JSchane on March 11, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    Jshane ,where do I start?
    I am really your worst nightmare,laugh at my ” street grammer”,my neices African name and my spelling. the usual attacks.
    Anything to distract us from reperations.
    A perfect example is how the jew hogged the spotlight when a black somehow picked up a oscar, this is our society in a nutshell. The black man does all the work and the white man claims all the glory.
    May I remind you a black man invented the motion picture camera.
    A black man/woman invented the following
    instant rice
    the traffic light
    menthol cigarrets
    the common wax candle
    the ball point pen
    the guidance system for all of the appollo moon missions
    poison darts
    anything to do with the majestic peanut
    breed the common potato with the yam to produce the sweet potato
    air conditioning
    the airplane
    stereo sound
    jet engine
    disc brakes
    car sun visor
    tinted windows
    energy drinks
    parole board
    work release
    clip board
    led lights
    the aaa battery
    tv remote control

    I can go on and on my friend.
    Count your blessings the next time you turn on your air conditioner or watch a movie on a airplane, a black man was behind it all.
    It is strange that Edisons right hand was a Harvard educated black man who designed the first electric motors and flux capicators that powered the first street lights ever in the city of Linden New Jersey in 1881,yet there is no mention of him. ALTHOUGH THE CITY WAS NAMED AFTER Chad Linden!!! Electric street lights were another first stolen from the black man.
    I sense wonderful things coming from GM if only Obama can let the black creative juices flow,new designs,solar powered cars and a sense of style that can not be duplicated by the white drones that drove that company into the ground.
    This country voted for change and I believe Obama is going to give it to us.

    Peace out!!!

    prince shakazulu mohammad on March 11, 2010 at 5:34 pm

Malcom x was right when he proposised that the white man would pit the black man against his black brother.
My cousin Prince Mohhamond is being attacked for speaking the truth!!!
How most of the whites sleep knowing that everything your ancestors own was aquired from the sweat of the slaves who built this country I cannot understand!
Although Obama was elected in the greatest landslide in history does not erase the centuries of rape ,slavery and opression.
I am home schooling my precious Obamichelle the true history of this country.
Monica and her brilliant hubby is only fighting the uncle toms,for this they is hounded by the white press.
Although we have recieved some token reresentation in sports and Hollywood it is mere window dressing.Look how the beautiful Precious was snubbed At the Oscars!
Look how Tiger was attacked! Look how Obama and the beautiful Michelle are attacked! If only you would step back and let us lead this country we could be living in a beautiful Utopia.
I believe that GM should give each black a new car and gas card,think how many jobs it would create and also show a token way of starting the reperations that must begin.
When can my people no longer wake up each morning outraged at the injustice? It is very hard to start each morning feeling outraged. I am outraged that I am outraged!!!!!!!!!!!

velvet williams on March 11, 2010 at 4:28 pm

i have to agree with the views expressed at,the roosters have indeed come home to roost.
Thanks for directing me to this great and real web site.
It has expressed views the black man has known for centuries.
