Monica Conyers, Detroit councilwoman and wife of House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers, pled guilty today in a bribery case and now faces five years in prison. Conyers is only in her first term on the council, but had already previously made headlines for threatening to shoot a mayoral staffer, accusing then-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick of rigging her office chair to electrocute her, and referring to colleague Ken Cockrel as “Shrek” at council meetings.
Just add this to the last year of indignity for a city and state that have endured:
- The Kwame Kilpatrick Embarrassment
- The Worst-Ever Detroit Lions
- The Near-Total Collapse of the State Economy
- The Total Collapse of the Red Wings in the Stanley Cup Finals Against the Hated Pittsburgh Penguins
It’s all on you, Tigers.
