For the first time, a former staff member of Democratic Rep. John
Conyers Jr. of Michigan has publicly come forward to allege that the top
lawmaker contributed to a hostile work environment, according to a Washington Post report published Wednesday.
Melanie Sloan, who served with Conyers from 1995 to 1998, alleged in
the report that she was verbally abused by Conyers, who is now the
ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee. Within this time,
Sloan said that she saw and experienced similar claims that were made public in recent days, after allegations of sexual misconduct began to emerge.
Sloan alleged that Conyers yelled at her and was critical of her
appearance, according to The Post. She also said that at one point, she
saw him in his underwear after she was summoned to his office, but said
she did not believe she was sexually harassed.
“I was pretty taken aback to see my boss half-dressed,” Sloan said told The Post. “I turned on my heel and I left.”
Sloan said she repeatedly sought help from her supervisors, but was ignored, according to the newspaper.
“There was nothing I could do to stop it,” she said. “I was dismissed and told I must be mentally unstable.”
Conyers’ attorney denied Sloan’s allegations and told The Post that
Conyers “has never done anything inappropriate to Melanie Sloan.”
The House Ethics Committee launched an investigation Tuesday, following a BuzzFeed News report
that said Conyers had settled a wrongful dismissal complaint with a
former employee who alleged she was fired for refusing his “sexual

Conyers had made inappropriate contact, such as “rubbing on her
shoulders, kissing her forehead, making inappropriate comments, covering
and attempting to hold her hand,” the Post said.
denied settling the sexual harassment cases, but later confirmed he
had, adding that he still “vehemently denied the allegations.”

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)
A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .
They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.
According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.
The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.
He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.
When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.
But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.
Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.
“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.
