But one former top aide defends him. Most of us have walked in on him accidentally without knocking and have seen him in his underwear. Big deal. That's where his closet is. He changes his clothes there. Reporter: Conyers denies the accusations, but admits to secretly paying one former staffer a $27,000 settlement. Tonight, in Detroit, the congressman's wife distraught.
