CNN is reporting that a former top aide to Democratic Rep. John Conyers is saying it wasn’t uncommon for staffers to see the congressman in his underwear.
Boom! That hurts!
One former employee, Melanie Sloan, came forward with allegations last week, including one instance where Rep. Conyers called her to his office when he was in his underwear.
“I was pretty taken aback to see my boss half-dressed,” she told The Washington Post. “I turned on my heel and I left.”
Bob Weiner, who served as Conyers’ communications director from 1994 to 2000, spoke to reporters and photographers assembled outside the Congressman’s office, disputing Sloan’s allegations.
“Something else that people need to know: his closet is in his office right here. He changes clothes in his office. Most of us have walked in on him accidentally without knocking and have seen him in his underwear.”
