John Conyers' attorney speaks with FOX 2 amid sexual harassment claims

- After another accuser comes forward with allegations of sexual harassment against Congressman John Conyers, his attorney is talking to FOX 2's Charlie Langton about the growing claims against the Democratic lawmaker.

"Conyers has categorically from the beginning said that has not sexually harassed anyone," Arnold Reed said.

A second woman has now come forward saying that congressman made sexual advances to Deanna Maher.

Maher was the former deputy chief of staff who ran Congressman Conyer's downriver office from 1997 to 2005.  She wrote that in Sept. 1997, she rejected the congressman's offer to share his Washington hotel room with him.

She says she will eventually discuss in detail what happened.

"You have an individual like Congressman Conyers who says I haven't done anything wrong," Reed said.

She also says there was a 1998 incident of an unwanted touching in a car and an incident where the congressman put his hands under her dress in 1999.

There is a House Ethics Committee investigation. The jury is out on whether or not the congressman should step down. And the congressman says he will cooperate with all investigations.
