Is Rep. Conyers corrupt?


(Image by Unknown Owner)   Details   DMCA

Rep. John Conyers (MI) has portrayed himself as a leading supporter of impeachment but in his job as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee he has blocked impeachment for years.

Conyers promised to hold impeachment hearings after the election but broke his word.

Conyers ignored a petition with over one million signatures asking for impeachment hearings. Conyers also ignored a number of other impeachment petitions that added up to a second million or so signatures.

Now we find that Conyers was using a Republican operative involved in alleged vote rigging scams to maintain and control his congressional website. The following articles have more:

"GOP election stealers run Rep. John Conyers' Congressional Website."-

and "GOP Technology Powerhouse eMerges Behind Firewalls on the Hill"

http://discuss.epluribusmedia.net/top_tier_GOP_techs_GovTech_and_GSL_Solutions_merge

 

There are a multitude of progressive and Democratic website specialists available who could have maintained Conyers' website. Why did he go to this GOP operative? Did Conyers have a "behind the scenes" relationship with the Republican operative? Does this explain Conyers' refusal to hold impeachment hearings? Will we ever know? The only way Conyers can prove to the voters in his district that he wasn't playing games with impeachment is to start impeachment hearings prior to January 20th.

Vice President Cheney has admitted authorizing torture. President Bush, in an interview with Brit Hume that aired on Fox News Sunday, admitted that he personally authorized torture.
