  Detroit Council President Brenda Jones sworn into Congress

APNews.com

DETROIT - Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones has been sworn in to fill Michiganís 13th District House seat, but will only serve in Congress for a few weeks.

Jones was given the oath of office Thursday after leaders in the House reached a deal on seating her while she keeps her job in Detroit. Jones will not take a city salary or conduct Detroit city business while a member of Congress.

Jones won a special election in August to finish former Rep. John Conyersí term, but she didnít win the Democratic primary to run for a full two-year term. Fellow Democrat Rashida Tlaib was elected to the two-year term and will start in January.

Conyers stepped down late last year after sexual harassment claims by former staffers.
