Deanna Maher, a former deputy chief of staff for Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), has accused the congressman of making unwanted sexual advances toward her, including inappropriate touching, per The Detroit News.

Her allegations are the latest in a string of accusations made by multiple women this month — including another former staffer — and have prompted the now 88-year-old Conyers to step aside from his role as the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee while a congressional ethics committee investigates his conduct.
