16. What should disqualify him is his family relationship with Conyers!

Over the past few years neither party has a great history of family following family in public office*. Bush following Bush is the most glaring example. And Hillary after Bill. Jesse Jackson's son. George Romney and Mitt Romney. And, of course, Ivanka and Jared. There should be no passes given just because one is related to the incumbent. We are not a monarchy.

Conyers naming his son was out of line. Let the district voters decide.

* Nothing is ever an absolute, exceptions, of course - Robert F. Kennedy, and John Q. Adams.
