John Conyers III announces his candidacy for his father's old job

“John Conyers Formally Announces Bid for Michigan’s 13th Congressional District” it read.

Huh? The longest-serving congressman, who stepped down in December amid allegations of sexual harassment and assault, would seem to be making another run for the office.
