via Conyers not quitting after Pelosi calls on him to resign – AOL News

WASHINGTON, Nov 30 (Reuters) – U.S. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday called on Democratic Representative John Conyers to resign, calling sexual harassment allegations against him serious and credible, but Conyers’ attorney said he was not thinking of stepping down.

“It is not up to Nancy Pelosi,” attorney Arnold Reed told reporters in Detroit, Michigan. “Nancy Pelosi did not elect the congressman, and she sure as hell won’t be the one that tells the congressman to leave.”

“That decision will be completely up to the congressman. He’s not thought of that,” Reed said. Instead, Conyers, 88, was focusing on his health after being hospitalized late on Wednesday after suffering dizziness, light-headedness and shortness of breath, Reed said.
