I saw that article from the Detroit Free Press and some posters on DetroitYes compared her to former DC mayor Marion Berry.

Former Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers submitted a bid for the county's top office, despite a state law preventing her from holding public office.

The former councilwoman pleaded guilty in 2009 to using her position on council and a city pension fund board to solicit bribes from businessmen seeking city contracts or pension deals. She spent three years in federal prison. State law bans officeholders convicted of a felony involving deceit and fraud from holding office for 20 years.

The law, amended in 2010 with what is fondly referred to as the "Kwame Amendment," bars those convicted of a felony involving a breach of public trust from holding office at the state and local levels. It does not address whether convicted officeholders are allowed to run.
I hope she won't be elected. Remember the times when she called Ken Cockrel Jr. "Shrek"?
