Amid swirling reports of allegations of sexual misconduct pinned against Congress members this week, Michigan Rep. John Conyers now wrestles with resignation.

Marion Brown, a former staff member, gave a detailed account of how the congressman made co-workers feel unconformable during an interview Thursday with Stephen Henderson, host of "Detroit Today" on WDET-FM (101.9). She claimed he asked her for sexual favors serval times, especially when his wife, Monica Conyers was out of town.

"He owns you when you are there," Brown said. "At one time, it was said amongst staff members — females — that he thinks that his initials, J.C., stand for Jesus Christ," she said.

"[He would] invite me to a hotel in the guise of business, and then it turns into something else. And this happened too often. And that was throughout," Brown added. "He seemed to have taken on the attitude that 'I'm gonna go for it now. My wife's away, and I have these needs and I'm going to call you up in the middle of the night."

House Representative Nancy Pelosi on Thursday urged Conyers to relinquish his position based on the accusations.

"The allegations against Congressman Conyers, as we have learned more since Sunday are serious, disappointing and very credible," Pelosi said during a news conference. "It's very sad and the brave women who came forward are owed justice. I will pray for Congressman Conyers and his family, and wish them well. However Congressman Conyers should resign."

Pelosi added, "No matter how great a legacy there's no license to harass or discriminate. In fact it makes it even more disappointing."

Conyers, 88, vehemently denied the allegations against him and refused to resign, according to a statement issued by his office.

"Congressman Conyers has no plans to resign," the statement read. "He intends to cooperate with the House should they determine further investigation is warranted," the New York Post reported.

"At this point, we have to say enough is enough. Mr. Conyers, the congressman, my client, is not going to bow down to political pressure to step down, resign, step aside," Conyers' attorney, Arnold Reed, told BuzzFeed News.

Conyers joins a list of congressmen who stand accused of sexual assault. Five women, over a two-week span, have alleged Minnesota Sen. Al Franken of sexual misconduct, which sparked an open investigation. A woman told CNN on Thursday that Franken had touched her inappropriately while the two posed for a photo in December 2003. Franken has since apologized.
