A relative of John Conyers says the longest-serving current U.S. House member won't seek re-election amid allegations that he sexually harassed female staff members.

Michigan Representative John Conyers told a Michigan Radio station he is stepping down from his seat from Congress. Calling in from a hospital, the longest serving member of Congress made the comments on the Mildred Gaddis’ radio show Tuesday morning.

"I am retiring today and I want everyone to know how much I appreciate the support - incredible undiminished support I've received over the years," he said. 

Recently under fire over claims he sexual harassed former employees, Conyers maintained the accusations against him were false.
