OCE Referral Regarding Rep. John Conyers Exhibits 1 of 1

On May 11, 2017, the Office of Congressional Ethics transmitted a referral to the Committee on Ethics of the United States House of Representatives regarding Rep. John Conyers.

Nature of the Review

Representative Conyers may have paid compensation to his Chief of Staff Cynthia Martin during a time when the services she performed were not commensurate with her level of compensation.

If Representative Conyers provided a member of his congressional staff with compensation that was not commensurate with the work she performed, then he may have violated House rules and standards of conduct.

OCE Recommendation

The Board recommended that the Committee on Ethics further review the above allegation because there is substantial reason to believe that Representative Conyers provided a member of his congressional staff with compensation that was not commensurate with the work she performed, in violation House rules and standards of conduct.

Committee Action

On August 9, 2017, the Committee on Ethics released a statement indicating it would continue to gather information necessary to complete its review. The Committee published the OCE report and findings and announced the allegations would be further reviewed pursuant to Committee Rule 18(a).
