Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee and the longest-serving current House member, allegedly settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 after a former employee accused him of firing her for not yielding to his “sexual advances.”
According to affidavits signed by four former staffers, three of which are notarized, Conyers on multiple occasions made unwanted sexual advanced to his female staff, Buzzfeed reported Monday.
The sexual misconduct included asking for sexual favors, caressing and touching, rubbing legs and backs in public, and having his staff contact and transport women they believed were having affairs with Conyers.
Four anonymous sources involved verified the authenticity of the documents to BuzzFeed.
Conyers was also accused of using taxpayer dollars to fly in women who his staffers assumed he was having affairs. That was also a part of the same suit settled out of court.
