    How does this work now? Does the governor appoint someone? Or is there another election?

    The voters will decide who replaces Conyers. I wonder if Moore will also withdraw.

    Nah. Moore has a "get out of jail free" card.

    He's a Republican.

    That is good in normal circumstances yet this act of stepping down seems to be a one sided lesson. Democrats in Congress seem more focused on political morality than may be healthy if they raise their head up from the rabbit hole and notice what republicans are doing about their sexual predators...electing them.

    Conyers should have retired but all of the above makes me resent the innocence or false outrage of Democrats in Washington.

    Oh hell no. No one should expect Moore to and no one should expect Republicans in Congress to do anything about it since the voters know he abused children before they elect him.

    He can say, but if Michigan is like Ohio the Governor appoints until the next election.
