Monica Conyers, former Detroit City Council member is said to owe between $15,000 and $50,000 to posh retailer Neiman Marcus.
Monica Conyers is the wife of Democrat Congressman John Conyers.
Ms. Conyers, 47, was sent to a West Virginia federal prison in September 2010 to serve a 37-month sentence for bribery.
As president pro tem of the Detroit City Council she was found guilty of accepting at least $6,000 for her deciding vote on the 2007 Synagro Technologies Inc. sludge contract.
Is it ironic or fitting that she went to jail because of a sludge contract?
Anyway, according to the report at the link below Mr. Conyers is facing a tough primary race Aug. 7 for the newly redrawn 13th Congressional District, which includes parts of Detroit, western Wayne County and Downriver.
