John Conyers has to offer that would warrant a $174,000 yearly salary and perks and that just may be why his lawyer is not-so-subtlety warning the House of Representatives to back off or else. The fact this statement from attorney Arnold E. Reed was released via Tweet from Yamiche Alcindor, a New York Times "reporter covering Congress, race & social justice issues", we have a good idea where this could be headed.

    When Susan Fowler rocked Uber’s world with a meticulous account of the company’s sexual harassment and gender discrimination issues, the ride-sharing service turned to its only female board member to help clean up its culture (and its image). Arianna Huffington was perfectly poised to position herself as the feminist savior who would advocate for Uber’s women—she oversaw the subsequent Eric Holder investigation, and promised that “no brilliant jerks will be allowed, and no one will be protected because they are top performers.” But being a powerful woman with a stake in a company, and its profits, doesn’t mean Huffington was...
