Second Woman Accuses Conyers Of Sexual Misconduct, Thanksgiving Traffic Jams I-95

Second Woman Accuses Conyers Of Sexual Misconduct

Democratic Congressman John Conyers is being accused of sexual assault by a second woman. The alleged victim is Conyers longtime scheduler and she claims in a federal court complaint that Conyers committed “sexual advances in the form of inappropriate comments and touches.” In the filings, the woman petitioned the court to keep her complaint under seal, but she dropped her case once the judge rejected that request. Yesterday reports surfaced that Conyer’s Michigan office paid another female aide more than 27-thousand dollars. The money was part of a confidentiality agreement to settle a complaint.

Thanksgiving Traffic Jams I-95

Traffic is starting to pick up all across the DC-Baltimore region as people hit the road for the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The southbound lanes of I-95 in Northern Virginia are already jammed with traffic, and transportation officials expect it to stay that way through the afternoon. In Maryland, Triple-A Mid-Atlantic estimates that more than a million folks will travel 50 miles or more, which is a nearly three-and-a-half-percent increase over last year. In Virginia, similar travel is expected to be up by three-percent over last year.
