Rep. John Conyers’s (D-MI) attorney, Arnold Reed, told a reporter that he was proud of how Reps. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) stood by Conyers after he had been accused by multiple former female staffers of sexual harassment.

“There were a couple of people who really supported [John Conyers] and his family. They gave great family support. My good friend Maxine Waters,” Reed told the reporter. “Maxine Waters and I have been talking for the last week at least two to three times a day.”

Reed then applauded the support that Conyers received from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX).

“So I can’t say enough about those two, especially Maxine Waters. I’m motivated to help Maxine Waters with every initiative she wants in her district. I am proud of the way that they stood and let this be his decision,” he concluded.

Conyers retired from the House of Representatives, effective immediately, on Tuesday, after multiple former female staffers of his accused him of sexual harassment.

Waters spoke out about sexual misconduct in the past, decrying it when it suited her political needs.

“We’re waging our own war against rape and sexual harassment,” Waters said during her keynote speech at the Women’s Convention in October. “We’re waging a war against the perverts who believe we can be misused or exploited in the interests of a job or recognition or even so-called love.”

It seems that “war” doesn’t extend to those men accused of sexual harassment who Waters considers to be friends or polticial allies.

"I personally think she should be referred to the office of government ethics," Lee said.
