Rep. John Conyers Knew Nothing About Wife's Bribes

Powerful congressman John Conyers, 80, apparently knew nothing about the bribes paid to his 45 year-old wife, Monica, to which she pled guilty in federal court yesterday. (The bribes allegedly amounted to just a few thousand dollars, one of which was paid in front of a fast food restaurant in Detriot called "Mr. Fish.")

According to the Associated Press, Conyers, who was first elected to congress in 1964 (the same year that his wife was born), is rarely seen with his wife and their two teenage sons.

Before they married in 1990 (when he was 61), she was a 27 year-old aide in his congressional office.
