US Rep. Conyers in hospital as ex-aide describes harassment

Jphn Conyers hospitalized amid charges of sexual harassmentMichigan Rep. John Conyers was hospitalized in Detroit on Thursday as a former aide publicly accused him of sexual harassment, telling NBC's "Today" show that she was fired for rejecting advances from the longest-serving member of the U.S. House.

Marion Brown, 61, said the Democratic congressman propositioned her for sex multiple times over more than a decade. She said she stayed on the job because she needed to support her family and found the work rewarding.

"It was sexual harassment ... violating my body," she said. "Propositioning me. Inviting me to hotels with the guise of discussing business and then propositioning me ... for sex."
