The third woman accusing Representative John Conyers of sexual misconduct has made a statement calling out the indifference on capitol hill to staff members misconduct.
ABCNews.com reported: In an interview with ABC News, Melanie Sloan, a lawyer who worked with Michigan Rep. John Conyers on the House Judiciary Committee, says the congressman was “increasingly abusive” to her and often berated her loudly in public. She also says on one occasion she “walked into his office having been called up to brief him on something and he was walking around in his underwear.”
Sloan is the third woman to accuse Conyers of impropriety. On Monday, BuzzFeed reported Conyers' office paid a female aide over $27,000 as part of a confidentiality agreement to settle a wrongful dismissal complaint; Conyers did not admit wrongdoing. The next day, the outlet reported that in February Conyers' longtime scheduler filed a federal complaint alleging "sexual advances in the form of inappropriate comments and touches," but she later abandoned the case after a court denied her request to keep it sealed.
"There was an occasion where he called me out of a meeting with a bunch of domestic violence advocates and was screaming at me in the halls, including [about] me not wearing stockings on a 95-degree Washington summer day ... while he wasn't wearing socks," Sloan told ABC News.
She also told ABC News that while she did not consider Conyers' behavior to be sexual harassment she did consider it to be “sexual discrimination.”
