John Conyers steps in it yet again.

You might recall a story that hit the news last week about John Conyers reading a skin mag in public on an airplane. It didn't get a lot of play in the press because it was right in the middle of thanksgiving when it hit (funny how that worked out...).

Well, he just can't keep from stepping in it. It would appear that his 2010 Caddilac Escalade was broken into and two expensive $1,100 Macbooks (aren't they ALL expensive?) and $27,000 worth of concert tickets (what? did he buy the whole damned floor seating section?) were stolen.

But things get hinkyier. Seems it is not at all normal for congressmen to drive GSA owned vehicles, which are SUPPOSED to be for official use only, not for the private use of congressmen. Secondly Conyers was not driving the vehicle at the time, or more precisely John Conyers II wasn't. His son, John Conyers III, was driving it. (the police report can be found here)This is a violation of federal law for a non-governmental employee to drive a government owned vehicle.
