These are the same people who deny due process for Roy Moore. 

Again, more sweet irony from the partisan crowd. 

Prominent clergy, Detroit elected leaders and community activists said Monday they will go to Washington – if necessary – to demand due process for Rep. John Conyers, who faces allegations of sexual harassment from several former staffers.

Dozens of people attended a rally at Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit.

“We don’t mind going to the White House, to the U.S. House of Representatives,” Michigan Rep. Sherry Gay-Dagnogo, D-Detroit, said. “We are demanding due process.”

The House Ethics Committee is investigating allegations of harassment and inappropriate touching by women who once worked for Conyers, including claims by Marion Brown who could testify later this week before the committee.

Last month, BuzzFeed News reported that Conyers had settled a complaint in 2015 from a woman who alleged she was fired because she rejected his sexual advances. BuzzFeed reported that Conyers’ office paid the woman more than $27,000 in the confidential settlement.

Brown, 61, later publicly identified herself as filing the complaint and said the congressman propositioned her for sex multiple times over more than a decade.

BuzzFeed also published affidavits from former staff members who said they had witnessed Conyers touching female staffers inappropriately or requesting sexual favors.
