Eighty-one-year-old John Conyers, (D-Mich.) was caught flipping through the August issue of Playboy like it was a copy of the latest briefing from the House Judiciary Committee... which he chairs. He was on a flight from Detroit to D.C. in July, and was caught by a passenger with a cell phone camera. That wasn't too difficult to do, given that Conyers was sitting in an aisle seat.

There were apparently two Playboy centerfolds that Conyers perused, which would probably include nudes of "Mad Men” star Crista Flanagan, who was in the August issue. Conyers also read an article titled “La Chatte” by Maureen Gibbon... a quick Google translation means "the cat," or "pussy." I'll let your imagination run wild, just as Conyer's imagination probably ran wild on that plane flight.

The Michigan View pontificates:
...it is entirely possible he is preparing for a committee hearing on the legal definition of pornography. Or perhaps he is studying new TSA pat-down procedures for female passengers.
Or, he's just the latest creeper in the creepy parade that snakes its way through the halls of Congress every cycle.
