House Minority Head Nancy Pelosi called for embattled The state of michigan Rep. John Conyers to step down, amid mounting sexual harassment accusations against the nation’s longest-serving congressman.

On her weekly press briefing, Pelosi, D-Calif., called the allegations against Conyers “ serious and disappointing. ”

“ I pray for Congressman Conyers, however , Congressman Conyers should step down, ” Pelosi said Thursday. “ He has served our Congress plus shaped consequential legislation— zero threshold means consequences for everyone— regardless of the great legacy. ”
