Lessenberry on sexual harassment, Flint water crisis, and Richard Spencer

Nov 22, 2017

According to a report by Buzzfeed, in 2015 U.S. Representative John Conyers settled a claim made by a female employee in his office who said she was fired because she resisted Conyers' sexual advances. Conyers said he "vehemently" denies the allegations. 

Senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry joins Michigan Radio's Morning Edition host Doug Tribou to discuss the allegations and what they mean for Conyers' legacy.

They also talk about Gov. Rick Snyder's appointment of the state's chief medical examiner Dr. Eden Wells to lead a new public health council. Dr. Wells is currently facing criminal charges related to the Flint water crisis. And, University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel's decision to negotiate with white supremacist Richard Spencer on whether to rent him space to speak on campus.
