Less than a month ago, Congresswoman Maxine Waters told a women’s convention in Detroit that her Democratic colleague, Rep. John Conyers, as a man with “impeccable integrity.”
Women from across the country gathered for the Women’s Convention Sojourner Truth Luncheon on Oct. 28, when Waters took shots at President Trump while praising the 88-year-old representative from Detroit.
“You know, there is a member of Congress who has been supportive of women for many, many, many years,” Waters said. “He is quiet, he is confident, he is powerful, but he has impeccable integrity on all of our issues. Give John Conyers a big round of applause.”
She alleged the convention is important in light of several recent allegations against powerful men sexually assaulting or harassing women they oversee.
“I just want to take time to focus on something I think we need to focus on right now,” Waters said. “It is very fortuitous that we have gathered here this afternoon in Detroit as we continue to recognize a record number of women who are boldly coming forward to reveal disturbing and grotesque acts of sexual harassment, assault and rape, often times at the hands of men who believed they were too rich and too powerful to ever be confronted or held accountable.”
