  • MANDATORY CREDIT DETROIT FREE PRESS OUT HUFFINGTON POST OUT

Conyers Jr., who resigned on Tuesday after a flood of sexual harassment allegations against him, has said that he wants Conyers III to run for his empty seat.

The would-be congressman claimed that she was the one who had tried to stab him and was only cut in the ensuing struggle for the knife.

She then got into a pushing and shoving match with him.

NBC News described 27-year-old Conyers III as a Detroit hedge fund manager.

The girlfriend said that Conyers III suspected her of cheating after he went through her computer.

She said when she tried to call police, he took her phone and then chased her into the kitchen, where she grabbed a knife and told him to leave.

Records say the woman grabbed a knife to protect herself, but he disarmed her and slapped her before a second struggle for the knife in which the woman was cut.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office declined to bring a case against John Conyers III because there were no other witnesses to the fight.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is available now on Steam Early Access, and will release on Xbox One this Tuesday, December 12. Microsoft has announced that the first of three exclusive DLC packs for the game is about to go on sale.


The police report says there were independent witnesses and that the woman's injury can not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that is was not accidentally sustained while Conyers was disarming her.

After his girlfriend filed for a restraining order in March, Conyers responded in court documents, saying she has "a history of mental illness and has made previous false allegations".

Both Conyers III and his girlfriend called the police following the altercation, according to NBC.

Police say that Conyers III was taken into custody and released the same day in lieu of $50,000 bond, NBC reports.

This revelation may make his slide into his father's congressional seat more hard.

"I have a great family here and especially in my oldest boy, John Conyers III, who, incidentally, I endorse to replace me in my seat in Congress", the disgraced politician said.

His son, John Conyers III, was reportedly arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse in February but was not charged. "This too shall pass", said Conyers on a local MI radio station Tuesday morning. He also rapped about other family incidents including the three year jail sentence for his mother, former Detroit councilwoman Monica Conyers, for taking bribes, The Daily Caller reported. Ian Conyers, whose grandfather is Rep. Conyers' brother, has already announced his plans to run for the seat.
