Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the longest serving member of the House of Representatives, announced Tuesday that he plans to retire amid accusations he sexually harassed multiple women during his time in Congress.
Appearing on the “The Mildred Gaddis Radio Show,” Conyers suggested that his son, John Conyers III, should replace him in Congress.
“My legacy will continue through my children,” he said.
