"He changes clothes in his office. Most of us have walked in on him changing his clothes
... and have seen him in his underwear. Big deal!"
Conyers is facing multiple allegations of harassment, including claims that he made unwanted sexual advances.
Also among the allegations is a claim from ethics lawyer Melanie Sloan, who told The Washington Post last week that Conyers at one point asked her to come to his office at the Rayburn House Office Building. When she walked in, he was in his underwear, she said.
Conyers has denied previous allegations, first reported by BuzzFeed News last week, but after days of pressure, he announced Sunday he would step down as the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee.
The Ethics Committee last week said it opened an investigation into the allegations against Conyers.
The Congressional Black Caucus, of which Conyers is a founding member, is reportedly trying to convince him to resign.
