Pelosi Statement on Immediate Retirement of Congressman John Conyers, Jr.


The Arm of the U.S. Speaker of the House.

Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on the immediate retirement of Congressman John Conyers, Jr.:
“Congressman Conyers has served in the Congress for more than five decades, and shaped some of the most consequential legislation of the last half century.  But no matter how great the legacy, it is no license to harass or discriminate.
“The brave women who came forward were owed the justice of this announcement.  Now, we must pass the ME TOO Congress Act to create greater transparency and accountability in the broken reporting and settlements system.  We must lead the fight against sexual harassment and abuse, not only in Congress but in every workplace, everywhere in our country.
“I pray for Congressman Conyers and his family and wish them well.”
