Rep. John Conyers, the longest serving Democrat in the House, is stepping down. His resignation comes after multiple accusations from former employees that Conyers sexually harassed them. Conyers called into a local Michigan radio station to announce his decision, "I am retiring today...I am in the process of putting together my retirement plans."
