Rep. John Conyers Jr., (D-MI), old enough to know right from wrong.

OK Democrats, how do you expect anyone to take you seriously when you do crap like this.

Those of us who expect our party to be something better than a pale imitation of the GOP, aren't going put up with this kind of foolishness, Mr. Conyers. You are paid plenty well enough to afford a babysitter.

I'm sure some of your constituents in Detroit could use some extra cash.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Two former staff members of U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr.,
D-Michigan, say the longtime Detroit congressman made them baby-sit his
children, run errands and work on political campaigns while they were on his
congressional payroll.

Sydney Rooks, whom Conyers hired as a legal adviser in his Detroit office,
recalls the lawmaker brought his two young sons into her office several times,
saying, "Rooks, they're your responsibility for right now. I'll be back

She said later could be a few minutes or an hour. "Later could be frantically
calling around trying to find him because it was now 8 or 9 p.m. or later in the
evening and not knowing what to do with the children," she said.

John Conyers is basically a good man and has done good things, but if he did it, he knows better.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
