Dem Lawmaker Calls on Rep. John Conyers to Step Down From Committee Post (VIDEO)

Democratic lawmaker and Black Caucus member Gregory Meeks called on John Conyers to step down as ranking Democrat of House Judiciary Committee.

Notice: Meeks didn’t call on Conyers to resign (after all he is not a Republican) — He only called on him to step down as minority leader of Judiciary committee.

Mediaite reported:

Congressman Gregory Meeks is calling on colleague John Conyers to step down from his post as ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee.

With reports in the past few days about allegations of sexual harassment leveled against the Democrat, Conyers is now the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation.

On CNN Wednesday morning, Meeks said that “no one is exempt from bad behavior.”

“I really think that probably the appropriate thing right now,” he continued, “is that he should step down as the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee and be subject to this ethics investigation.”

This is rich coming from Rep. Meeks who has had his own issues with the law.


In 2010 a federal grand jury issued a subpoena to Democrat Gregory Meeks for a shady house deal. Rep Meeks (D-NY) is also being investigated for his involvement with a charity that raised money for Hurricane Katrina victims who never received a dime.
