DescriptionRep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) retired Tuesday after facing multiple allegations that he had sexually harassed female aides.

From a hospital in Detroit, the 88-year-old congressman said Tuesday that he is endorsing his son to replace him in Congress.

“My legacy can’t be compromised or diminished in any way by what we’re going through now. This, too, shall pass. My legacy will continue through my children,” Conyers said in an interview with a local radio station.
