Dem Rep. Kathleen Rice: ‘John Conyers Should Resign,’ Allegations Credible and ‘Repulsive’

A Democratic congresswoman is calling on colleague John Conyers to resign.

Rep. Kathleen Rice (D- NY) put out a statement today following reports of harassment allegations against the long-serving Democratic congressman.

Rice says the allegations against Conyers are “as credible as they are repulsive,” saying, “We all know credible allegations when we hear them, and the same is true of hypocrisy.”

Other Democrats haven’t quite gotten to that point yet. Congressman Gregory Meeks said earlier today Conyers should step down from his post as ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee.
