Detroit congressman John Conyers says his imprisoned wife owes thousands of dollars to an upscale retailer and thousands more for a school loan.
Conyers listed the debts on his annual financial disclosure form, which is required of all House members. It was filed last week.
Lawmakers don't have to be exact. Conyers says Monica Conyers' credit card debt to Neiman Marcus/HSBC was somewhere between $15,001 and $50,000. He says her student loan debt is between $50,001 and $100,000. Those debts were also reported last year.
Monica Conyers has served nearly two years of a three-year prison sentence for corruption while she was a Detroit council member.
Her husband's disclosure form says there's a mortgage of $100,001 or more on their Detroit home. John Conyers is paid $174,000 a year.
