Third House Dem calls for Conyers to resign

Source: The Hill

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (Ore.) on Wednesday became the third Democratic lawmaker to openly call for Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) to resign amid sexual misconduct allegations.

In an interview on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal," Blumenauer said that while Conyers must be the one to make the decision, he believes that the current longest-serving congressman should step down.

"Obviously that's his decision, but I would think he should," Blumenauer said.

BuzzFeed News first reported earlier this month that Conyers had settled a wrongful dismissal complaint with a former employee who alleged that she was fired because she rebuffed his sexual advances.

1. I'm for letting him vote against the tax bill first.

Then, kick him out. The Rs are not getting emotional about their goal. Just a few more days...

2. I don't think one vote will change anything in the House, the Senate is another story
