Mike Cernovich is offering up to $10,000 for any further sex settlements allegations the public might have on US members of Congress whilst ensuring anonymity to those who get him any information.

For those who think it’s a hoax, we can assure you it is not. Cernovich is the person who got the information on Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, to Buzzfeed, the news outlet that broke the story a little bit later.
It started when Rep. Conyers had settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to his sexual advances.”
Mr. Cernovich got Buzzfeed four signed affidavits (three of which were notarized), from former staff members who all alleged that Conyers made sexual advances to female staffers on repeated occasions.
Conyers at first tried to accuse Cernovich rather than discuss the issue itself, stating that: “I deny these allegations, many of which were raised by documents reportedly paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger. I very much look forward to vindicating myself and my family before the House Committee on Ethics.”
But yesterday it was announced that Conyers would not seek re-election but wished for his son to follow in his footsteps (which is rather an odd way of stepping down).
Meanwhile, Cernovich is convinced that more members of Congress have settled similar suits in the past and is, therefore, calling on the public’s help to obtain documents in order to help him do his part to ‘drain the swamp’.
