The corrupt old Marxist Letch has decided to thow in the towel.

wonder what he'll do in his big mansion all alone until his corrupt wifey gets out of prison and he no longer has subordinate staffers to coerce and pay for with public funds? 

Guess there's always the internet and geriatric porn!

But he says he is innocent.  If he says he is innocent, doesn't that mean he is innocent?

Depends on one's party affiliation.

But this old fossil needs to go regardless.

Conyer's situation is a bit different from many of the other accusations flying around, which may or may not be true.  Conyers paid Hush Money to shut up accusers.  Part of the Settlements including gag orders, so the accusers couldn't take.  However, Conyers didn't use his own money.  He used tax payer money!

Congress, including members of his own party, is in the process of passing legislation to unmask the detais regarding how these tax dollars were spent!  Futhermore, they are looking into whether a waiver on the gag order can be obtained (since it ws public funds; not Conyer's money) and if these women who received settlements can be called to testify before Congress.

Yes, he is 88 and he did not say he was quiting, he said that he will not seek re-election

Oh, that sounds just like Bill O'Reilly who still swears that he is innocent.

Well, consider the source.

With Conyers gone, that's one pussy grabber down and more to go.  Not counting, of course, the admitted pussy grabber in the White House.  He was elected in spite of it so he's already been "cleared" of any ramifications.

But Franken?  We'll see.  And Moore?  Will he be elected, and thus cleared, in spite of all those "lying women?"

I think he will, and I am looking forward to watching it unfold.

So, if someone makes an accusation about a he said/she said mater involving you thirty years ago, I guess you will agree that the accuser is to be believed regardless of what you have to say?

Well, to be fair, the Judge's situation is not a "he said/ she said."  It's a "he said/ they said" and there are a lot of they's.  And a lot of credibility among those theys, and a lot of contemporeneous evidence, some even in the Judge's own handwriting, to back them up. 

One "he said/she said," no.  But this many?  And with that much corroborating evidence?

Whether it should matter to the electorate or not is for the electorate to decide, but they gotta know in order to decide if it matters.  And since the Judge is an R, and since similar accusations (corroborated by the Donald hisself!) didn't matter in THAT election, I predict it won't matter in this one, either.
