Rep. John Conyers and Waste Project

The Washington Times reports that House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers supported a waste project and an aide to his wife allegedly received money from a contractor involved in the project.

Mr. Conyers’ spokeswoman, Karen Morgan, said in a statement to The Washington Times: “In the context of the congressmans representational duties to his constituents, including the Detroit pension board, he determined that this was something the EPA should reconsider.

“I also refer to the statement of the United States Attorney in which he said ‘I also want to make it equally clear that the evidence offered no suggestion that United States Representative John Conyers, Ms. Conyers husband, had any knowledge or role in Ms. Conyers illegal conduct, nor did the congressman attempt to influence this investigation in any way.’ ”
