DETROIT (Associated Press) -- The most prominent person caught in an corruption investigation in Detroit is returning to court to be sentenced in a bribery scheme involving a city sludge contract.
Ex-councilwoman Monica Conyers pleaded guilty last summer to conspiracy and admitted taking cash in exchange for supporting a Houston company, Synagro Technologies. The contract passed by one vote in 2007.

Reminds me of the Pardongate time when Hillary just took the white envelope and never looked inside before passing it on.
Congressman Conyers must be shocked at his wife's corruption. He didn't have any idea at all, I'm sure.
Wow, yet another marriage where the one political spouse doesn't have a clue what the other is doing.
There may be a whole lot more to this story than this!!!
Democrats deal in sludge...who’d have thunkit?
Very interesting. Thanks for posting.
I don't think he is talking, but remember reading the contractor in the pay to play deal, paid his kids school tuition.
Great video! I’ve seen it many times but it’s tremendous insight into Monica Criminal. Kiera Bell is quite the young lady. Thanks for the link.
republicans had congress for 6 years in a row...how many corrupt politicans were investigated? How many were impeached?....the politicans will protect their own no matter what..
Community service. One hundred hours working in her husband’s congressional office.
--Corruption runs in the Conyers family. Remember? Flashback January 2007:
After a probe lasting more than three years, the committee declared that Conyers has accepted responsibility for a series of House rules violations involving the use and abuse of his staffers.
According to published reports, Conyers used several staffers as his personal servants requiring them to babysit and tutor his children, chauffeur him to personal events, help his wife with her law-school classes, work on his campaigns and pay restaurant and motel bills.
--- One staffer was even ordered to move into Conyers home for six weeks and serve as a live-in nanny to his kids. --
Municipal sludge contains a large amount of energy and value as fertilizer. In Detroit they were looking at making part of the sludge into roofing shingles.
If you think of the sludge as a raw material and Detroit as the largest source of it in the US you can understand there are a lot of companies that would really like to get that contract.
*cough* Culture of Corruption
You would think that the good people in the Congressional Black Caucus would drop out of that outfit. They will all look like criminals if they stay in and everyone should be investigated for criminal activity.
Someone needs to start a new website about Democrat corruption. It can be named The Sludge Report.
“republicans had congress for 6 years in a row...how many corrupt politicans were investigated? How many were impeached?”
Right ON! Throw ALL of the bums out!
Detroit. You just hear the word and you think corrupt Dems.
How fitting it is for a Conyers to be trapped in sludge. Too bad John won’t be joining her.
