The highly outspoken and sometimes, well, ignant wife of U.S. Representative John Conyers, is heading to the slammer over bribery charges. Monica Conyers is a city council person who became well known from her antics in the city council chambers. We’ve written numerous stories on her antics and it is still mind boggling that our beloved John Conyers would be affiliated with her.
She resigned back in June of 2009 behind bribery charges that she knew would bring federal agents to her doorstep. She was sentenced to three years in jail and a mental evaluation (the evaluation occurred earlier at the judge’s request…so she claims). Even though she may be the biggest fish the FBI has taken down in an effort to end the corruption in Detroit’s management, she won’t be the last. The sting was a part of a much bigger federal investigation into the city’s corruption.
But getting rid of Monica Conyers has to be akin to getting rid of the wicked witch of the west. Once, after calling the then City Council President, Kenny Cockrel, Shrek, an elementary child had to chastise and correct Mrs. Conyers about the incident. Good riddance to bad rubbish!
