Congressman John Conyers is in the hospital, according to family friend and Detroit political consultant Sam Riddle as the leader of House Democrats calls for his resignation.
Riddle came to Conyers’s home in Detroit just before 9 a.m. Thursday to tell the media Conyers was in the hospital. Riddle says Conyers is “resting comfortably with Monica by his side.” He didn’t go into further detail as to why he’s in the hospital, but did say that it was stress-related.
A few hours later, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the House, said Conyers should resign from his seat in Congress.
Pelosi told reporters Thursday that the accusations against Conyers are “serious, disappointing and very credible. It’s very sad.”
