During George W. Bush's successful 8-year run as President, one of his chief antagonists was Michigan senator John Conyers. Conyers is a man whose hatred for Bush was so over-the-top, that several times he tried, unsuccessfully, to push bills to get the President impeached, bills based on nothing but conspiracy theories and typical left-wing propaganda. Any wonder while Conyers was so busy trying to harm the President, he couldn't keep an eye on the illegal shenanigans his wife was up to:
Monica Conyers, the wife of the powerful chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., pleaded guilty to one count of bribery in a federal court in Detroit, this morning.
According to court documents, in late 2007, Mrs. Conyers, president pro tem of the Detroit City Council, twice accepted envelopes filled with cash, once in the parking lot of a Detroit McDonalds.
This case focuses around dealings with Detroit businessman Rayford Jackson who pleaded guilty on Monday to giving $6,000 to a member of the Detroit City Council to help steer a wastewater treatment contract to Synagro Technologies.
