Not often the scum get punished. Must of pissed somebody off. Conyers maybe ran for the hills over his wife getting caught bribing. Greed will eventually get you, I guess. But look how many years it took.

Conyers’ wife sentenced to 3 years – Washington Times

DETROIT (AP) | A former Detroit City Council member was sentenced to more than three years in prison Wednesday for bribery after a federal judge refused to set aside her guilty plea during a stormy court hearing dominated by a dispute over evidence of other payoffs.

As guards cleared the packed courtroom, Monica Conyers yelled that she planned to appeal. The wife of U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr., Michigan Democrat, wanted to withdraw her guilty plea, suggesting she was the victim of “badgering” last year when she admitted taking cash to support a Houston company’s sludge contract with the city.

But U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn, reviewing a transcript of the June hearing, said Monica Conyers had denied any coercion and voluntarily pleaded guilty to conspiracy.
