With Wife in Jail – Top Dem Conyers Bounces Check to DMV
Top democrat Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) the chair of the House Judiciary Committee bounced a check to renew his license.
The Hill reported:
Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) lost his driver’s license temporarily this summer because he bounced the check used to pay the renewal fee, according to an Associated Press report.
Conyers, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, attempted to renew the license Feb. 2 but months later was informed that he wrote a check for the renewal on an account with insufficient funds. The license was suspended June 30 until July 26 when Conyers paid the fee.
Conyers’s office issued a written response after the AP asked for an explanation.
“…A check was inadvertently written to renew the chairman’s driver’s license from an account that had been recently closed,” the office wrote. “As a result his driver’s license was suspended. Immediately upon learning of this, a replacement cashier’s check was provided, and his driver’s license was immediately reinstated.”
