Monica Conyers Up in Flames?

Apparently, Detroit City Councilperson Monica Conyers (D), wife of US Rep. John Conyers (D-Detroit), will accept a plea deal in an ongoing corruption probe. Previously, she was considering a plea bargain deal in the Federal bribery investigation. Without admitting any connection, her response on Monday? “…if you’re not praying for me, then you’re just adding to the problem.”

What Monica doesn’t realize is she doesn’t have the broad support she thinks she has. It seems she’s delusional if she expects broad support in the next election. That may be just the point.

Consider how obstructionist Conyers has been. Her departure from the local political scene will benefit Detroit and the entire region! Can anyone be surprised Conyors is detrimental for Detroit?
