Rep. Conyers Hospitalized for Stress-Related Illness

Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) has been hospitalized due to a stress-related illness, CBS Detroit reported Thursday. “Monica Conyers, Mrs. Conyers, is by his side and we just ask, really the nation, to pray for this Congressman that has done so much for the nation,” said family spokesperson Sam Riddle. The 88-year-old lawmaker is currently facing several allegations of sexual misconduct by former female staffers. The House Ethics Committee is currently investigating the claims against him. Conyers announced last week that he will step aside as the House Judiciary Committee’s ranking Democrat.
