Rep. John Conyers of Michigan will not resign, his attorney announced at a press conference in Detroit today. "That decision sure as hell isn't up to [Nancy] Pelosi," he said. "She is jumping on the bandwagon now."

Why it matters: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called for Conyers' resignation just moments before the press conference started, which comes after several women, including two of his former staffers, accused him of sexual harassment.
