    His great-nephew, Ian Conyers has announced that he intends to run for the seat, but I saw no mention of Conyers endorsing his son.

    So, I suppose Paul Ryan will now call for Representative Farenthold to resign as well?

    Yes Ryan will race to announce that. And then he will call for Trump to resign immediately...when hell freezes over.

    He did call for Conyers to step down so we know he can fake one-sided outrage well.
    Thanks from NightSwimmer

    Watch and learn. Politics is self preservation.

    Anytime there is a vacancy in the House of Representatives, there must be a special election to fill the seat. U.S. Const. art. I, 2, cl. 4. Only vacant Senate seats may be filled temporarily with a gubernatorial appointee pending a special election, as state law may provide. See U.S. Const. amend. XVII, cl. 2.

    Prove moore did anything wrong, The proof is there for Conyers. There are accusations against Moore that as time go on are being proven to be false.

    I can prove that Roy Moore has been kicked out of office twice for violating federal law.

    How many times has Conyers been removed from office for violating federal law?
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey

    Okay, so wait, you want Judge Roy Moore to drop out of the Senate race because he violated federal law or because of the accusations against him four decades ago? More likely you just hate him because of the letter that follows his name. One thing that you neglect to mention is that Moore won the primary, even though the voters knew about him being removed from office, twice.

    I haven't called for Moore to drop out of the race. The more scumbag Republicans elected, the sooner the people wake up to the bullshit, in my opinion.
