While it seems most of Rep. John Conyers’ Democratic colleagues can only muster enough outrage to call for an ethics investigation of his alleged sexual misconduct, there’s at least one who’s taking a decidedly stronger tone.
Fully support an immediate Ethics investigation into allegations of sexual harassment against Rep. Conyers. Don't care about party politics when it comes to sexual harassment & assault. Just the truth.

It’s refreshing to see a Democrat put integrity before party. Good on Rep. Rice.

That’s it. Well said. He needs to be out.

Thank you for your integrity to the victims. THEY deserve more than red team vs blue team partisan excuses. Their assault doesn't deserve to be "rated" on a sliding scale determined by what team their abuser is on.
