Conyers Confirms Settlement But Denies Allegations

“Amid rising calls for an ethics investigation into his behavior, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) confirmed that he reached a financial settlement with a former staffer who accused him of sexual harassment but stressed that he did not admit fault in the case,” the Washington Post reports.

Said Conyers: “I expressly and vehemently denied the allegations made against me, and continue to do so… My office resolved the allegations — with an express denial of liability — to save all involved from the rigors of protracted litigation. That should not be lost in the narrative.”
