Wonder what you would find if you frisked Michigan Congressman John Conyers’ in-flight reading material?
Answer: A Playboy Magazine… Duh!
The Michigan View reports:
While November’s election brought a tsunami of change to Michigan policies, some incumbents are untouchable. So untouchable, apparently, that they openly read girlie magazines on their trips to and from Washington. Detroit Congressman John Conyers was caught on camera in a late July flight to DC this summer ogling a Playboy magazine.
The video and pictures – first posted by ex-Detroit News reporter and New York Times Pulitzer Prize winner Charlie LeDuff on his Facebook page – were taken by an anonymous passenger seated in the same row as the 81-year old congressman. Conyers – in his aisle seat – is shown flipping though pages showing two nude gal pals in the August issue of Playboy. And he also apparently reads Hefner’s product for the articles! He appears to linger on an article titled “La Chatte” by Maureen Gibbon.

Remember when Rep. Conyers admitted that there was no point in reading a 1,000+ page health-care reform bill? Now we know why… It did not include any photographs that fulfilled his “needs”.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the most depressing news. The most depressing news would be the fact that the Michiganders in his congressional district are dumb enough to reelect him year after year.
Still waiting for that miracle in Michigan’s 14th congressional district…
