Wife of Rep. Conyers begins federal prison sentence By Michael O'Brien - 09/10/10 04:28 PM ET
The wife of Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) reported to a federal prison in West Virginia on Friday to begin a 37-month sentence on corruption charges.
Monica Conyers, a former Detroit city councilwoman, reported to the Alderson Federal Prison Camp this afternoon 20 minutes before deadline, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Conyers pleaded guilty last year for taking bribes to influence a vote on a sludge disposal contract in Detroit. She has since attempted to withdraw her plea.
Her husband, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has dodged questions about his wife and her guilty plea.
I wonder if their families got any scholarship money.
After all the snide, condescending racist remarks coming from her husband . . . it’s good enough for this. I’m delighted.
He should visit her. Often.
The prison is nicknamed “Camp Cupcake” by most residents and the media. Local residents have also referred to it as “the college campus.” It was called “Yale” by one-time attendee Martha Stewart.
Conyers acknowledged what he characterized as a "lack of clarity" in his communications with staff members regarding their official duties and responsibilities, and accepted responsibility for his actions.
Yep, lets check out the scholarship money, I'm sure he doled out some to kids.
Best news of the day. She is a perfect example of politicians who feel entitled. And I would guess her habits run in the family.
uhhhmmm taking the hit for her husband and the cause; what-do-ya bet she gets a pardon.
Seems like the news cycle for the last few weeks has been to point attention away from key political activities and corruption causes.
Me too...what time tomorrow does she get out?
Three years. She will be paid perhaps a million $$$ a year to do the time and for keeping her mouth shut
This warms my heart.
mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmm
Did they report this in the MSM? Was it covered on CNN or MSNBC? I don’t even remember Fox reporting on this woman reporting to prison. Why not?
Hip, hip, hooray! One for the people.
Isn’t this the broad that called her fellow council member “Shrek”? I know it’s on Youtube somewhere. Rude, mouthy bitch obsessed with being ‘disrespected’ when she was merely being asked to follow meeting protocol. Cannot stand her.
CORRUPTION?!!!!!! well I never.
Just another lousy corrupt pork-pimp.
