A Democratic congresswoman is calling on Rep. John Conyers to resign following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington state says the country is in the midst of “a watershed moment” and finally “seems to be waking up and realizing we need to have a zero tolerance policy toward sexual harassment.”

She says Democrats “cannot pick and choose,” lambasting President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy “and then turn a blind eye to our own who face credible charges against them.”

Jayapal says she believes the women who made complaints against Conyers, a 27-term lawmaker from Detroit and a former Judiciary Committee chairman. Jayapal is on the committee.

She says: “I see the pattern and there is only one conclusion – Mr. Conyers must resign.”
