COVER-UP=> Dem Rep John Conyers Used Sneaky Tactic to Secretly Pay Off Sexual Harassment Victims
As previously reported, it was revealed Monday evening that Democrat Rep John Conyers has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women. According to affidavits, Conyers used taxpayer money to fly women into D.C. to meet with him in hotel rooms!
The documents were first provided to BuzzFeed News by Mike Cernovich.
Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.”
Buzzfeed also reported that staffers were tasked with flying women in for Conyers using Congressional resources!
Former employees also said that Conyers made it very clear that if they performed ‘personal favors’ it would lead to salary increases and promotions. It was well known Conyers was having affairs with multiple female staffers. He often made sexual advances towards women and grew angry if they brought their husbands around.
Conyers denies the allegations, however; he knew exactly what he was doing and used sneaky tactics to deliberately cover up the settlements to various women.
In one case, Conyers paid a woman a settlement through payroll (via taxpayer money) as if she were a ‘temporary employee’. Buzzfeed explains:
In this case, one of Conyers’ former employees was offered a settlement, in exchange for her silence, that would be paid out of Conyers’ taxpayer-funded office budget. His office would “rehire” the woman as a “temporary employee” despite her being directed not to come into the office or do any actual work, according to the document. The complainant would receive a total payment of $27,111.75 over the three months, after which point she would be removed from the payroll, according to the document.
The draft agreement viewed by BuzzFeed News was unsigned, but congressional employment records match the timing and amounts outlined in the document. The woman left the office and never went public with her story.
It is important to note that in some cases sexual harassment lawsuits are settled as ‘personal injury’ so the victim doesn’t pay taxes on the settlement. This woman who was paid through payroll would then pay taxes on her ‘settlement’ which is another slap in the face to the victim.
Conyers’ wife is also a crook. As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, former Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers was sentenced to 37 months in prison for bribery charges in March of 2010.
What a lovely Democrat couple.
