Rebecca Nagle, a Cherokee woman, in an opinion piece posted to the Think Progress site, chastises Sen.

The growing push for John Conyers to resign, but not Al Franken, has some claiming racial bias

Washington Post, by Eugene Scott Posted By: NorthernDog- Thu, 30 56 2017 10:56:36 GMT The racial dynamics of the sexual harassment allegations against Congress´ longest’serving member are causing division within the Democratic Party. Rep. John Conyers Jr.  (D’Mich.) has been accused of mistreating female aides for more than two decades, including making sexual advances, inappropriate touching and verbal abuse. Conyers has defiantly denied wrongdoing and has no plans to resign or retire from the House.

An earthquake of that strength is considered to be moderate and generally results in little damage, the federal agency reports.  “We wouldn’t expect to have

Politico, by Heather Caygle and John Bresnahanhnan Posted By: NorthernDog- Thu, 30 22 2017 11:22:40 GMT Rep. John Conyers (D’Mich.) has not decided whether to resign, his lawyer said Thursday, despite calls from congressional leaders to step down amid several allegations of sexual harassment. “Nancy Pelosi did not elect the congressman, and she sure as hell won’t be the one to tell the congressman to leave,” said Conyers’ attorney, Arnold Reed, referring to the House minority leader. Conyers, 88, was hospitalized after suffering chest pains and dizziness Wednesday night. Reed also suggested that the calls for Conyers’ resignation are racially motivated. “I would suspect that Nancy Pelosi is going to have to explain what is the
