    DETROIT (WJBK) - The son of Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., says items were stolen out of the government vehicle he was driving last Wednesday in downtown Detroit, FOX 2's Simon Shaykhet reports.
    John Conyers III, 20, told police two Apple MacBooks, valued at $1,100 apiece, and more than $27,000 worth of concert tickets to the Fillmore were stolen out of a burgundy 2010 Cadillac Escalade registered to the 14th Congressional District.
    The police report says the vehilce was parked at Brush Street and Congress around 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 24. When Conyers returned around 12:30 a.m., he noticed scratches on the side door and items scattered throughout the interior.
    What the hell is Conyers doing with a taxpayer funded Escalade? This **** needs to , we don't have money for that.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    What the hell was his son driving a tax payers car to start with? Was his son elected to office? How much you want to bet he was drinking and driving seeing the late hour and where there car was parked.

    So now the taxpayers have to foot the bill of a night out on the town by someone that isnt even a member of congress?

    Why do I have the feeling this is business as usual.

    It's time for an investigation.
    "I don't know of a single person in congress in the 16 years I was there who had to put vehicle titles in the name of the government," former U.S. Rep. Joe Knollenberg...

    According to the U.S. General Services Administration Web site , if an employee allows an unauthorized person to use a government vehicle, that employee could be suspended or fired.

    the story has been updated

    U.S. Rep. John Conyers says he's sorry, will repay government for son's use of congressional vehicle | freep.com | Detroit Free Press

    "I have just learned about the inappropriate use of a congressional vehicle by my son over the Thanksgiving holiday," Conyers said in a statement Tuesday. "I am sorry it happened and will make sure that it does not happen again."
    Family members are allowed to drive the cars, but only when shuttling representatives to official business, said Kyle Anderson, a spokesman for the House's administrative committee.
    The younger Conyers could not be reached for comment. A man who answered the phone at his Detroit home said Conyers wouldn't have any comment.
    John Conyers III, 20, had worked in a $15-an-hour part-time job for his mother, Monica Conyers, a Detroit city councilwoman, before she pleaded guilty to federal bribery charges.
    Controversy Isn't First Time In Spotlight For U.S. Rep. John Conyers' Son
    As the namesake son of a political icon, John Conyers III is no stranger to the spotlight, but much of it has been shining a harsh glare on his parents.
    On Tuesday, Conyers' father, U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., said in a statement that his son used his government-provided vehicle without permission. He pledged to "make restitution to the treasury for any nonofficial use."
    The younger Conyers could not be reached for comment. Staffers in the Detroit lawmaker's congressional office wouldn't answer other questions -- such as how John III got the keys -- beyond releasing the statement.
    The statement came after reports that his son filed a police report after someone broke into the Cadillac Escalade late Nov. 24 and stole two computers and 1,000 tickets to a hip-hop concert that he was helping to promote.

    Sounds like a kid who took the keys without permission.

    Besides attempting to make political hay out of it, what would you do about this?

    My oh my to heavens! Such serious accusations. I await the evidence of a crime which somehow failed to make it in your post.

    I would strip him of his Congress plates and demand he turn the car back over to the govt. Make him foot the bill for his own ride if he cannot keep his thug of a son from behind the wheel.
