WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Some of Democratic U.S. Representative John Conyers colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are pressing the 88-year-old lawmaker to resign amid sexual harassment allegations against him, two senior House Democratic aides said on Tuesday.
The aides, who asked not to be identified, did not say how many lawmakers were involved in the effort but confirmed a report by CNN that it was underway.

Here's an old song I like.
CNN huh? Geez, who to believe? I do hope I hear the old commie say the words though.
Conyers’ buddies in the Congressional Black Caucus pressing him to get out.
That’s b/c the C/B/C does not want to be under a microscope.
Conyers is a founder......L/E needs to audit bank accounts of the Congressional Black Caucus (C/B/C).....and the office accounts of its members , for instance, Conyers.
NOTE WELL The Bank Secrecy Act was passed to protect the public from harm by identifying and detecting criminal enterprises, government fraud, money laundering, tax evasion or other unlawful activities.
Under the Bank Secrecy Act, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity that might be indicative of govt fraud, money laundering, embezzlement, and other financial crimes.
<><> Joint bank accounts might be used to facilitate the transfer of of govt funds. Govt monies may pay for personal and private expenses, credit cards, real estate subsidies and vehicle purchases, and costs to engage in sexual activity.
<><> To cover their tracks, fake invoices might be created to show that money deposited into accounts was being used for legitimate govt purposes.
The scheme might be advanced by issuing phony statements of payments from federal and state sources that actually covered the transfer of funds for govt employees own use.
<><> L/E is directed to get ahold of: (1) copies of C/B/C checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, contracts, loan agreements, and, (8) any other books or records. L/E should also explore (a) monies paid to brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.
<><> L/E should scrutinize bank accounts for suspicious activities: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) frequent requests for withdrawals, (d) purchases of airline tickets for female companions.
<><> Bank records might also show diversions to secret LLC other accounts, to operate personal businesses. Govt fraud can also be facilitated by withdrawals, gift cards purchases, credit card purchases and intra-bank transfers from govt accounts into personal accounts.
<><> A huge tipoff is whether bank withdrawals support luxurious lifestyle including payments for real estate, investment and stock holdings, jewelry, luxury vehicles, resort travel and gifts from luxury outlets for wives and mistresses.
Taxpayers demand the Bank Secrecy Act be used to prosecute govt fraud pronto.
How can we Condemn republicans war on women for 2018 elections with this crap hanging over our heads???
Is there any racial pattern in the old coots victims or was he an equal opportunity harasser?
The ‘noose’ is getting ever tighter, isn’t it, Mr. Conyers.
Maybe you need to get all your things in order
so you can ‘spend more time with your family’.
Brother, if you don’t go we is all gonna be caught up in this here scandal . . . so you gots to go!
Now we can do this the easy way or the hard way.
They must know a lot more than what has been reported.
There is simply no excuse for an “88 year old lawmaker.”
Good point. If members of the Congressional Black Caucus are pushing one of their own members to resign, there must be a lot more to this story than what has been reported so far. They must feel it's best to cut their losses now before the really bad stuff is made public.
Same names that head the list of perps, on who’s behalf payments were made, I’m guessing!
What about a 28 year old lawmaker" who lived on Mammy & Daddy's dime until finishing law school, then getting elected to Congress on the Family Name?
What does the White Caucus have to say.
There is simply no excuse for an 88 year old lawmaker.
That’s right. It’s wrong in so many ways. And those that stay beyond age 65-70 are not normal people. Any normal person would retire and try to enjoy their family and life for their remaining years.
Last I heard his wife was facing a prison term for bribery and may still be in the canner!
Conyers should call ‘em a bunch of racists.
al Reuters is slightly more credible than CNN.
No, not really.
Just wondering if one of them is Maxine Waters?
