Lupe Valdez Is Running for Governor
Texas Democrats have faced uncomfortable questions for months about whether they can field a credible gubernatorial candidate. Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins reacted to the announcement Wednesday via Twitter, thanking Valdez for her leadership.
Speaking to reporters last week after the allegations against his father emerged, Conyers III said, "With sexual assault, women are to be believed".
On Tuesday the elder Conyers officially resigned from Congress after being dogged by complaints of sexual misconduct. A district attorney's charge evaluation sheet obtained by Local 4 shows John Conyers III was involved in a violent domestic dispute with his live-in girlfriend.
The woman claims he then chased her into her kitchen where she grabbed a 10-inch knife to protect herself, ordering him to leave the house.
The woman told authorities the incident began when he accused her of cheating on him after checking her computer.
Conyers did not respond to messages sent to his social media pages Wednesday night and the Los Angeles attorney who represented him in the criminal case didn't immediately comment.
The only injury to Conyers' girlfriend was a small stab wound to her lower bicep, the network reported.
Conyers III is credited with writing a handful of articles for the Huffington Post with a bio that says he spends time between Detroit and Los Angeles.
Police say that Conyers III was taken into custody and released the same day in lieu of $50,000 bond, NBC reports.
"I have a great family here and especially in my oldest boy, John Conyers III, who, incidentally, I endorse to replace me in my seat in Congress", the congressman said in an interview on Detroit radio station WPZR.
John Conyers III has lived at his parents' house in Detroit over the years and has also lived in Los Angeles.
