Disgraced Dem Conyers endorsed son for his own seat but he didn't qualify

Democrat John Conyers’ bedside wish for his son to take his Michigan House seat, after being forced from Congress over a sexual misconduct scandal, likely won’t come true -- now that the younger Conyers reportedly has failed to qualify for the ballot.

The Wayne County Clerk Office’s elections staff said last week that John Conyers III, the ex-congressman’s son, was ineligible because he didn’t submit enough valid signatures on his application to run in the Aug. 7 Democratic primary, according to local reports.

The review was launched after a challenge from another Conyers family member. Clerk Cathy Garrett was expected to make an official announcement soon.

Conyers, who turned 89 this month, had backed his son in a December 2017 radio interview from a Michigan hospital where he was recovering from the stress of the scandal.

John Conyers wasn't the brightest bulb in the fixture and it looks like John Conyers III is following in his footsteps, about half the signatures invalid.

Not to worry.

A federal judge will order him put back on the ballot.

I don’t care you you are, that’s funny right there.

There is no shortage of Conyers family members. Practically the entire population of Detroit is related to him.

If dad is 89, is the kid old enough for Social Security? Are these guys like the Mandelbaums? Don't anyone try to move the TV in the hospital room.

Looks like Conyers was a late bloomer as a father, Conyers III was 27 in 2017 according to the article below.

excerpt:

“She says I stabbed her, which makes no sense,” Mr. Conyers, 27, said. “I didn’t do this. She and I had a verbal altercation and that escalated. She pulled the knife on me. She was chasing me. I tried to take it from her. There was a struggle. I pinned her to the wall. She kept swinging and she cut herself.”

Conyers was a dirty legend as a sex pervert.

It still rankles me that reporter Cokie Philips said Capitol Hill regulars knew never to get into an elevator with him.

But Cokie never reported this.

I thought I’d heard long ago something about Conyers being a horn dog. Thanks.

That’s what I thought too and checked to make sure he is the son, the old bird was about 60 when the son was born.

He probably thought he is entitled to the seat and did not have to follow the rules. He may have a great understanding of the people of Detroit.

If I still lived in Detroit, which I haven’t since 1964, that scoundrel would be my congresscritter.
