Conyers, 88, is now subject to a House Ethics Committee investigation after the Detroit Democrat was accused of sexually harassing former staffers, including spending more than $27,000 from his taxpayer-funded office budget to pay off a woman who said she was sacked for resisting his sexual advances.
Jerrold Nadler of NY, the second-ranking Democrat on the judiciary committee, said in a statement: "Conyers has a 50-year legacy of advancing the cause of justice, and my job moving forward is to continue that critical work".
