The top Democrat in the House on Thursday called on Michigan Rep. John Conyers to resign in the face of multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against the longest-serving member of the House.

 are serious, as we have learned more since Sunday, disappointing and very credible. It’s very sad,” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi,“The allegations against Congressman Conyers, D-Calif., told reporters.

 who was hospitalized in Detroit, and his family. “However,Pelosi said she prayed for the 88-year-old Democratic lawmaker,” she said, “Congressman Conyers should resign.”

The dramatic call from Pelosi came just hours after a former aide publicly accused him of sexual harassment, telling NBC’s “Today” show that she was fired for rejecting advances from Conyers.

 61, said the congressman propositioned her for sex multiple times over more than a decade. Brown initially told her story to BuzzFeed News on condition of anonymity,Marion Brown, saying she’d settled a complaint in 2015 with Conyers over the allegations, according to her attorney.

“It was sexual harassment … violating my body,” Brown said Thursday. “Propositioning me. Inviting me to hotels with the guise of discussing business and then propositioning me … for sex.”

Conyers has faced growing demands from other House Democrats to step down, but he has insisted on his innocence. The lawmaker gave up his seat as the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee this past Sunday while holding onto his congressional seat.

 she said, “zero tolerance means consequences – for everyone. No matter how great the legacy,Pelosi on Sunday had called Conyers an icon and argued for due process of an Ethics Committee investigation. On Thursday, it’s not licensed to harass or discriminate. In fact, it makes it even more disappointing.”

 however, media and sports has resulted in swift punishment. In Congress,[url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/amara-darboh-jersey-cheap]Womens Amara Darboh Jersey[/url], two lawmakers facing accusations — Sen. Al Franken,A wave of allegations against titans of entertainment, D-Minn.,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/vernon-davis-jersey-cheap]Authentic Vernon Davis Jersey[/url], and Conyers — have remained in their jobs.

 meanwhile, was in a Detroit hospital,Conyers, political consultant and family friend Sam Riddle told The Associated Press. Riddle said the information came from Conyers’ wife,[url=http://www.titansfootballauthentic.com/brett-kern-jersey-authentic]Womens Brett Kern Jersey[/url], Monica. He said he didn’t know Conyers’ medical condition or why he went to the hospital.

” saying she stayed on the job because she needed to support her family and found the work rewarding. The AP left messages seeking comment from Conyers’ lawyer,Brown broke a confidentiality agreement to tell her story to “Today, who has said the congressman will fight the misconduct allegations.

BuzzFeed News reported last week that Conyers had settled a complaint two years ago for $27,000 with a female staffer who alleged she was fired because she rejected his sexual advances. BuzzFeed didn’t disclose her name in its initial report and said the settlement was confidential.

 Lisa Bloom, confirmed to the AP after the NBC interview aired that Brown was that former employee. She said Brown worked for Conyers in a variety of capacities from 2003 until 2014,Brown’s lawyer, mostly in the Detroit district office.

Brown said she was taking a risk by violating the confidentiality agreement. She said she spoke out to say she’s “not a liar” and to request an apology from Conyers. She said she reported some allegations to Conyers’ chief of staff in Detroit,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/trent-williams-jersey-cheap]Womens Trent Williams Jersey[/url], but nothing happened.

 but Detroit-area attorney Arnold Reed told the AP on Wednesday that Conyers is innocent and has no plans to step down. Anyone making inappropriate touching or other claims against the longest-serving member of the House should be prepared to back them up,Some fellow Democrats are pushing Conyers to resign, he added.

 with documentation, witnesses,“He’s going to fight these allegations tooth and nail if he has to with evidence, whatever he has to do,” Reed said. “And the accusers will have to prove up their case.”

 but later dropped it. The AP hasn’t released her name. And a third ex-staffer,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/vernon-davis-jersey-cheap]Womens Vernon Davis Jersey[/url], Deanna Maher,A former scheduler filed a complaint earlier this year, said Tuesday that in 1997, Conyers undressed to his underwear in front of her and twice touched her leg inappropriately.

The House Ethics Committee is investigating Conyers, and Reed said he will cooperate with any investigation.

 members of the Congressional Black Caucus met with Conyers and explained to one of their founding members why he should resign, but stressed the decision was up to him,Also Tuesday, the senior House aide said.

 three other Democratic House members have publicly suggested Conyers should resign: Kathleen Rice,Besides Pelosi, Earl Blumenhauer and Pramila Jayapal.

In Baltimore, he lined up all over the formation and did his best to carry the Texans to victory.

John Conyers' resignation, while those in the Senate reserved judgment for their embattled colleague

" a call echoed by other Democratic leaders.,In no uncertain terms, the top Democrat in the House said, "Congressman Conyers should resign

" Reed said.,Conyers' lawyer, swiftly rejected the request as the lawmaker professes his innocence. "Nancy Pelosi did not elect the congressman, Arnold Reed, and she sure as hell won't be the one to tell the congressman to leave. That decision will be completely up to the congressman

Reed raised the specter of a double standard as House Democrats pressed for Conyers, the longest-serving member of the House and a co-founder of the Congressional Black Caucus, to step aside while few have called for Franken to relinquish his seat.

"At the end of the day, I would suspect that Nancy Pelosi is going to have to explain what is the ... difference between Al Franken and congressman Conyers," Reed said.

Yet the clamor was growing, with some House Democrats arguing that if Conyers goes, so should Franken. That demand was made hours after Franken faced a new allegation: An Army veteran accused him of groping her during a USO Christmas tour in the Middle East more than a decade ago.

The Senate Ethics Committee announced on Thursday that it had opened a preliminary investigation into the allegations against Franken, who has apologized and said he welcomes the probe. A spokesman released a statement Thursday saying that Franken "takes thousands of photos and has met tens of thousands of people and he has never intentionally engaged in this kind of conduct."

Pelosi's comments came after she faced harsh criticism for calling Conyers an "icon" who has "done a great deal to protect women" during an appearance on "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

 said she left a Democratic Caucus meeting on Wednesday out of frustration that leadership wasn't taking the issue of sexual harassment seriously enough. But by Thursday the highest-ranking members of the party had upped the ante from simply backing an ethics investigation and emphasizing the importance of due process for those accused to calling for Conyers' resignation.,Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., who was the first House member to publicly opine that Conyers should quit

"Zero tolerance means consequences - for everyone no matter how great the legacy it's not license to harass or discriminate," Pelosi said.

Rice and Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, have called for Conyers and Franken to quit.

Although his House colleagues didn't call for his resignation or suggest he not run again, Barton faced increasing political pressure in his home state to step aside. Earlier this week a Republican announced he'd run against Barton in next year's primary.

"Obviously you know I've been in a little bit of a controversy,[url=http://www.titansfootballauthentic.com/brett-kern-jersey-authentic]Authentic Brett Kern Jersey[/url]," Barton said Thursday. "I just felt it was time to pass the torch."

But on Capitol Hill,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/trent-williams-jersey-cheap]Authentic Trent Williams Jersey[/url], where lawmakers on both sides of the aisle and in both chambers on Congress have universally condemned harassment and discrimination, responses to specific allegations still vary.

Despite the multitude of allegations, Franken's colleagues in the Senate have consistently condemned the alleged behavior but stopped short of asking him to quit.
