Wow. That's a big one.

The Daily News, a very liberal NYC tabloid that despises Trump (just to establish it's bona fides), has a interesting opinion piece on the sex panic that's sweeping the country.

Are you talking about Cynthia Martin collecting $50,000+ over 4 months to stay home?

If he did use taxpayer funding to cover up abuse of any kind absolutely he should resign from Congress not just a committee. All of the others who did the same should be gone as well, he certainly was not the only one and both Dís and Rís are in that pile of corruption.

Do you agree that if Conyers did what he is accused of doing, that he should step down?
