    Conyers' Wife Sentenced to Three Years in Prison

    Conyers' wife sentenced to three years in prison - Glenn Thrush - POLITICO.com

    The wife of House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) has been sentenced to a three-year prison sentence as part of a plea deal, the AP reports.

    A federal judge has denied ex-Detroit Councilwoman Monica Conyers' request to withdraw her guilty plea in a corruption case and sentenced her to three years and one month in prison.

    Conyers suggested she was the victim of "badgering" last summer when she acknowledged a conspiracy to take bribes for her support of a Houston company seeking a sludge contract from the city.

    But U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn says her plea deal was voluntary.

    Conyers, the wife of Michigan Democratic Congressman John Conyers, quit her council seat after pleading guilty.

    2. Still, sorry.

    11. He has SOCIALIZED the losses of the megacorps while PRIVATIZING their gains.

    He had salad days? Just seems to me that the corruption doesn't always stop at the Capital or go home with the Congressional members.... sometimes is bleeds into the rest of the family.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Every Monica Conyers thread has to contain these two gems:

    Her flipping her **** at a council meeting:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZQLxVO-qjM"]YouTube- Monica Conyers, Ken Cockrel Outburst[/ame]

    Her getting owned by a school girl:

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    That's just precious stuff right there... maybe she'll have a good number of debates in prison and she can call other inmates "Shrek". If she ever wanted to see what getting stomped on feels like she should try it.
