Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., temporarily lost his driver’s license in June because the check he used to pay for his renewal fee bounced. The Associated Press discovered that during an investigation of the
driving record of Michigan congressional candidates, The Hill reports.
Conyers, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, tried to renew his license Feb. 2, but wasn’t informed of the bounced check until months later. His license was suspended June 30 and reinstated July 26 when he paid the fee.
His office issued the following statement on the matter:
“A check was inadvertently written to renew the chairman’s driver’s license from an account that had been recently closed. As a result, his driver’s license was suspended. Immediately upon learning of this, a replacement cashier’s check was provided, and his driver’s license was immediately reinstated.”
