Look who's in the news



Maher and Rooks said that Conyers tasked staffers in his district office with taking care of his two young boys, John and Carl.

"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.
