Maybe he should have asked his wife for a few bucks before she went into the slammer for bribery:
Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) lost his driver's license temporarily this summer because he bounced the check used to pay the renewal fee, according to an Associated Press report.
Conyers, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, attempted to renew the license Feb. 2 but months later was informed that he wrote a check for the renewal on an account with insufficient funds. The license was suspended June 30 until July 26 when Conyers paid the fee.
Conyers's office issued a written response after the AP asked for an explanation.
"...A check was inadvertently written to renew the chairman's driver's license from an account that had been recently closed," the office wrote. "As a result his driver's license was suspended. Immediately upon learning of this, a replacement cashier's check was provided, and his driver's license was immediately reinstated."
Just an observation; isn't it interesting that the bank sent the check back for "insufficient funds" while Conyers office claims it was a "closed account?" If the check had indeed been written on a closed account, the bank would have listed the check that way. So why the lie?
Secondly, if the check was written in February, why did it take until June to suspend Conyer's license? One would think there would have been several attempts to collect from the deadbeat Congressman and if he had refused or blew the state off, they would finally have been forced to suspend his license to get him to address his debt.
