Pelosi Changes Her Mind On Conyers, But It’s Too Late [VIDEO]

The amount of bad press that the Democrat leadership has gotten from both sides of the aisle on the John Conyers stories just keeps escalating. Conyers, who is apparently now hospitalized for stress back home in Detroit, has had many colleagues and staff serve up several defenses for his ongoing behaviors.

First, his chief of staff Bob Weiner (yes, his real name), told reporters that Conyers being in his underwear IN HIS OFFICE was a normal occurrence.

Yeah, that explanation doesn’t make it any better.

The second attempt to defend Conyers was a joint effort between his wife, Monica, and Rep. Jim Clyburn. First, Monica Conyers told the press that they were “stalking black people.”

Clyburn went one step further, and made a horrible and racist comparison between the women accusing Conyers, and a child murderer.

Clyburn, for his part, refuted that report, but the sources were not backing off.

Last night, Conyers, via his office, announced that he won’t seek reelection in 2018.

All these meetings, colleagues apparently talking to Conyers about stepping aside, and THIS was the best that Nancy Pelosi – the supposed leader of the Congressional Democrats – could do?

Pelosi seems to have realized just how badly she screwed up on Sunday by defending Conyers as an “icon,” because she has definitely changed her tune today.

At her weekly press briefing, Pelosi, D-Calif., called the allegations against Conyers “serious and disappointing.”

“I pray for Congressman Conyers, however, Congressman Conyers should resign,” Pelosi said Thursday. “He has served our Congress and shaped consequential legislation—zero tolerance means consequences for everyone—no matter the great legacy.”

Yeah, too late, Nancy.

Speaking to reporters at the Capitol, Rep. Kathleen Rice of New York said Pelosi’s appearance on “Meet the Press” on Sunday — when she raised questions about the accounts of Conyers’ accusers and described the Michigan Democrat as an “icon” — ceded the party’s moral high ground on sexual harassment issues, especially because one of Conyers’ accusers is bound by a nondisclosure agreement.

“I think that her comments on Sunday set women back and — quite frankly, our party back — decades,” said Rice, who is advocating for legislation that would expose a slew of hidden, taxpayer-funded settlements for sexual harassment by lawmakers and aides.

With Pelosi’s new statement on Conyers, I expect to see more Democrats calling for him to resign, while couching it in terms of his health, his family, his legacy, and his age. Meanwhile, it is important that Congress get Rep. Rice’s legislation – which would reveal which members of Congress used that slush fund from the Office of Compliance – passed, and hold those who used taxpayer money to pay off staff accountable.

The sponsors are Kathleen Rice (D-NY), Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI).

I hope we’re about to see a lot of skeletons get tossed out on the front lawn of the Capitol Building.

    Pelosi revealed her ethics, party and power above all else, but it won’t matter. Leftists will continue to behave as leftists. Situational ethics is standard operating procedure.
