Congressman Conyeres petitioner a wanted fugitive

DETROIT (WKZO) -- U.S. Representative John Conyers finds himself amid more controversy. The Michigan Department of Corrections confirmed Thursday a petition circulator hired by Conyers' campaign has a criminal record and is a wanted fugitive.

Authorities say 23-year-old Daniel Pennington is a probation absconder out of Battle Creek. Court records show he pleaded guilty to a second-degree home-invasion charge in 2012 and did not fulfill his probation requirements.

Pennington is in the middle of a controversy surrounding the U.S. representative regarding whether Conyers has enough valid signatures to qualify for the August 5th primary ballot.
