Maher and Rooks said that Conyers tasked staffers in his district office with taking care of his two young boys, John and Carl.John Conyers' son goes to a private school.
"If he asked you to do something, you knew you had to do it," said Rooks, 54, who administers a homeless shelter in Detroit.
She told The Hill that she tutored "Little John," as Conyers’s elder son is known, when he was a student at the Cranbrook School, a private school in Bloomfield Hills. The tutoring took place during normal working hours, and she was not given additional compensation for the work, nor was she reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses.
Rooks said when the son received low grades, Conyers told her, "Well, Rooks, you can add tutoring to your list of stuff to do."
She added that a staffer would pick the son up from school, take him to the office, fix him a snack and help him with his homework.
