Dem Steering Group Recommends Demings for House Judiciary Seat

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) announced that today the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee has recommended to the Democratic Caucus that Rep. Val Demings (D., Fla.) be appointed to a seat on the House Judiciary Committee.  Rep. John Conyers (D., Mich.) the former ranking minority member of the committee, resigned from Congress earlier this month in the wake of sexual harassment allegations (TR Daily, Dec. 5), creating a vacant Democratic seat on the committee.  Rep. Pelosi noted that Rep. Demings is “a 27-year veteran of the police force who rose to become Orlando’s first female Chief of Police.”
